Our 4th of July was very nice. We started our day by taking Sue to work (that wasn't the nice part thought) then we tried to go to the parade. We were running very behind, so we did a drive by for the parade, and decided to bag it and go to the zoo instead.
The zoo was very fun and not super crowded. Our favorite part was seeing the elephants. We caught a show where they were going to let the elephants get a bath in the hose. One elephant in particular was a "water-hog" as the keepers put it. She wanted the water to be sprayed on only her. In fact, if they were spraying a different elephant, she would stick her trunk up in the water so she could get a little wet. She also liked to open her mouth and have it sprayed (like the picture below) After their "bath" the zoo keepers hung up a giant fruit Popsicle for them to eat.
After the zoo, we came home picked up Sue, then made another delicious meal from the TOH magazine. It's Lemon Grilled Salmon. Here's a picture of the recipe if you want to jot it down.
After dinner, we went to watch fireworks.
