What do you mean animals bite?

After coming home from duty this morning, I knew that I wanted to get out with the family to do something fun especially because the weather is going to turn sour very soon. The Spousal Unit recommended a FREE petting zoo in Hampton. That was the right price for me so I was all in. There is a friend of mine that lives near there that I havenít seen in several years who had some lenses that I wanted to check out also.

After visiting with Crystal, Rob and Carter, the family and I went to Bluebird Gap Farms. Not the best petting farm that I have been too but again it was FREE. Maybe that is why there was plenty of riff raff there. They didnít bother too much with the animals but the kids play area was certainly a zoo.

The kids were good so we went to one of Emmaís favorite places. Bass Pro Shop, another FREE place if you donít buy anything. While there they found a boat or two that they wanted along with some other odds and ends including a zebra. As planed we left empty handed and headed over to Lone Star across the street. Itís been a few years since I have eaten at one and now I remember why. Now that I have learned how to cook on the grill, very few places live up to my expectations. Not one of the meats that was ďcooked to orderĒ was cooked to the way we ordered it.

When I want a good steak, unless I am going to Daniels Broiler in Seattle Washington or Mortons; I do it better at home for 1/3 price and on my schedule... (Agree on Lone Star- blahhhh)

Great shot, i love this. Almost as if a velociraptor tore threw the mesh and is on the loose! Maybe, hopefully eating some of the riff raff?

Nice capture and the post editing pretty cool. Sounds like a fun day! Did you get to try those lenses?
