Zoo & IMAX

June 30th, 2005

We both took a vacation day from work today so we could see the last ever (in this area, anyway) afternoon showing of Sharks 3D at the IMAX. I think the girl made a mistake in our favor and didn’t charge us enough for the tickets, though. I didn’t see any movie prices for $6 except child/senior, but that’s what our tickets cost. Score!

Anyway, the movie was really cool even though it was only 45 minutes long. I love nature films, and when they are in 3D, they are even cooler. I especially liked the part where it felt like you were in a sea of jellyfish swimming all around you.

Since I had acquired two free passes that expired today, we went to the zoo in the morning. I almost thought we weren’t going to be able to go because at 5:30 am there was a huge thunderstorm, but by the time we got up at 7:30, it was clear blue skies.

The zoo was a lot more crowded than we were expecting for a Thursday, but it wasn’t horrible. The weather was really hot and humid, but I got a lot of nice photos, so it was worth it.

Since we had time to kill between the zoo and the movie, we drove around the area and stumbled upon the location of the Lisle Eyes to the Skies Balloon Festival. It wasn’t open yet, but since we plan on going on Saturday to see the balloon launch, it was good to know the area a bit.

We also stopped at Starbucks to try the new Mint Mocha Frappachino and let me just say that it is delicious! I think I’m going to have issues this summer trying not to drink one every day. ;)

After the movie, we went to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. We have seen them around lately, so we decided to give it a try. Their food was ok; nothing really to write home about. We got an order of their boneless chicken wings, but I wasn’t very fond of them. I prefer the wings at Hooters.

After dinner we went to Old Navy to look for some shorts and jeans. Joe found a pair of shorts he liked, but I wasn’t so lucky. I did come home with two more tank tops to add to my collection, however! One is purple and the other is royal blue.

It was a long and fun day. Back to work tomorrow, though, so I should get to bed!

    I love hooters wings… especially the boneless ones. I never like the sauce on buffalo wings anywhere else I’ve tried them.

    GAG! BW3 (that’s what the original Buffalo Wild Wings was called here in CO) is my dad and brother’s favorite place to eat. There is one right near my parents house, and for the last 10 years I’ve been subjected to it WAY more than anyone should. However, they’ve expanded their menu (thank goodness because I don’t like wings) and made the entire restraunt smoke free, so now I can go without throwing a fit.
