Jacob's first zoo trip

Two weeks(ish) ago, Jacob got to take his first trip to the zoo. Everyone marvel at the splendor of animals too cool to be found in your back yard, and the small child who doesn't seem to notice they exist. As you can see here, Jacob is far more interested in his own hand than the giant slobbery monster a foot from his face. It's OK Jacob... they are pretty nice hands.

This picture is actually from a song in The Lion King. No joke...

This is a baby giraffe. It is also named Jacob.

This bird and the giraffe are star-crossed lovers, tragically separated by a huge fence. Their passion for each other burns like the force of a thousand suns... if only it weren't for the fence. The giraffe could probably totally flip out and kill the fence, but he is way to cool for that.

These are all just animals, and not Jacob, so I'm not going to bother writing stuff about each one. It will get you back to the Jacob faster. (FYI - there are a lot of baby animals in these pictures. They have all been named Jacob.)

Back to Jacob... here he is riding a calf. Since the calf is a baby, in a similar fashion to every other baby animal, it has been named Jacob. Also, does anyone else see how straight gangsta the human Jacob looks here?

Day over, and Jacob totally hit the jackpot. I'm a sucker for being awesome, and bought him a souvenir for his first zoo trip. He started to eat its face, and I couldn't say no. Oddly enough, despite it being a baby tiger, it was not named Jacob. It was named Alfonzo. I don't care what Pam says - I bought it, so it's Alfonzo, and Jacob will just have to learn.

Something old....

I was going through old photos of mine and came across this, and really liked it. I took this ages ago, a camping trip back in July 2009. O...
