Zou Bisou Bisou, Zoo Be Zoo Be Zoo

I'm nuts about Mad Men and have enjoyed hearing "Zou Bisou Bisou" on the radio since the song was featured pretty lustily in the season premiere back in March. Even happier are Michael and Sophie who request more and more and more of this song. They gasp when they first hear it, giggle, and now even sing along and spontaneously sing it while playing. Thank goodness for Sirius allowing me to replay it in the car again and again and again...and again.  I sometimes show the kids  this YouTube video--Jessica Pare's little dance number is a tad too hot for their eyes!

I'm pretty sure the kids don't know French. Therefore, they probably believe the song is about the zoo, like the Detroit Zoo where we went on Saturday.

Zou bisou bisou...
...zou bisou bisou...
Zou bisou bisou, zou bisou, zou bisou
mon Dieu qu'ils sont doux!

The highlight of this trip, as it tyically is, was the Arctic Ring of Life exhibit. We always love seeing the polar bears swim around and over us in the "tunnel," and on this visit one seal seemed to really enjoy getting almost close enough for us to tickle his belly.

Mike told this fella he was sorry to hear about the split from Heidi Clum, but that as they say, one day you're in, the next day you're out.  I'm not sure what's worse--that he said it, or that I found it pretty funny...or that I even went so far as to share it here.

Sophie the Prairie Dog
This was the first visit during which we actually crawled down into the prairie dog windows to give Michael and Sophie a lift and a view. Claustrophobic and uncomfortable for us, good times for them!

Another first was feeding the giraffes! In visits past, we were pretty sure it would just freak our kids out. This time, they seemed ready.

Sophie feeding a giraffe (she got a little nervous at the last moment but was cool with her daddy's help)!

Michael's turn! He was so excited and proud of himself!

  1. That looks so fun! I can't wait till my kids are old enough for that kind of stuff.

    1. Mary, we've been going since the kids were too little for sunscreen and we had to put muslin blankets over their seats in the DSNG to protect them. It's never too early, in my opinion! :) We've loved watching them get more and more into it over the years.

  2. It was a great zoo day Carrie and it looks like the kids had a really good time. I love the pics with the giraffes, so cute.

  3. I love all of the great photos of your day at the zoo. It looks like it was really fun. The video was really cute. It is great that your kids sing the Zou Bisou Bisou song. It would be great to catch them on video singing along to that song (or any song really).

    1. I'd love to get videos of the kids singing, but in order to prevent the camera from distracting them, I have to sing. Nobody wants to hear that video, trust me. :)
