This past Saturday, Kyle and Brian turned 30! Old bastards! We celebrated at the bar with lots of friends, as people do, but not before paying a visit to the Detroit Zoo earlier in the day. You know, what every 30 year-old wants to do on their birthday…Okay, it *may* have been my idea to go, but who can pass up cute animals? NOBODY DAMMIT. Kyle and I even bought a member pass (it’s in my name) and I can bring up to one guest each time I go to the zoo now. Kyle works a lot of Saturdays so I have a small list of people I can drag with me now. Did I mention that the Zoo is literally a mile from my house? No? The zoo is literally a mile from MY H OUSE.
Kyle took most of the photos, and the polar bear was all about it. It was almost as if he was following Kyle, striking pose after pose, ready for his close-up. I think the Zoo and the DIA are my two most favorite touristy things to do in the Detroit area, and I am so exited to visit more this year.
Afterwards, Kyle took a bunch of outfit photos for me (which I will have up next post) and Mariah and I took it as cue to play in the leaves. In a few years I will also be thirty, and I am planning on enjoying the whole day like Kyle and Brian did. They never say things like they are “too mature” for the zoo, or staying out late with friends now and again. They are just as goofy now as when I met them as teenagers, they just eat more now.
