Moonlight on the Mountain

Last night, Mark and I went to Moonlight on the Mountain at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

Moonlight on the Mountain is
6:00 to 10:00
21 and up
free drinks
free food
live bands
and great fun!

It was Mark's little birthday gift to me and we had a blast!
We got to feed romaine lettuce to the giraffes (which they loved!), see the grizzlies up close, hear the wolves howl at the moon (really, they did, it's not a cliche!), and listen to all the adults use "grown up language" because they knew there weren't any kids around.

Here's an interesting (or not so interesting) fact; the hippos are sisters. Feel free to impress your kids with that little tid-bit of knowledge next time to take them to the zoo.
The views from the zoo are amazing and are especially spectacular at night. We enjoyed a little lightening show out on the plains as well.

And after all the little creatures went to bed, the people danced. And you better believe that the Kyle's were out there shakin' it too! (Sorry, no pictures of that. In fact, no pictures of that ever, ever, ever, ever.)
If you live in Colorado Springs, I highly recommend that you keep your eyes peeled for this event to come around again next year. You'll love it. I just know it.
