When I was little, my parents would take me to the zoo. Pretty typical zoo trips but we would always make a point to drink out of the lion water fountain. The water spout was in the lion's mouth, so you had to stick your head in it's mouth to get a drink. I loved it!

Fast forward to last week, some friends and I take our kids to the zoo. And low and behold, the lion water fountain was still there (and working). My sweet little son and all of his friends took turns sticking their heads in the lions mouth to get a drink. They loved it!

It was SOOO awesome seeing my son enjoy things that I enjoyed when I was his age. But dear Lord, please don't let him enjoy all the bad things I "enjoyed" when I was a teenager! Ekk!

Ah, the ol' water fountain in the lion head trick. Nice. The tequila shot from the ice sculpture trick can't be too far behind.
