Zoo

I took the kids to the zoo yesterday. Not becuase it sounded particularly fun, but because if we didn't do SOMETHING out of the ordinary, the chances of everyone surviving the day looked far too slim. So we went to the zoo... it was the first thing I could think of really


I knew Allison would love seeing all the animals, and I knew Carter would love the stroller ride part of it (kid loves stroller rides). But I didn't anticipate how much Carter would love seeing all the animals too! He was so excited at every new exhibit. And he tried to climb into most of them too.

Both kids got to pet an elephant too. One of the zoo keepers had an elephant right by the exhibit fence and was walking her up and down the fence so that kids could touch her. Allison thought it was great... Carter thought it was interesting, and then thought that the elephant was too big and too close to him.

All in all, we had a fun day. And better yet, everyone survived the day.

That sounds like a very successful trip to the zoo!

That zoo is fabulous for kids! We have so many pictures of Sterling climbing that same elephant statue! It made me a little homesick for Syracuse!

That was too many exclamation points!

Not killing each other is true success some days. glad you had a way to avoid it.

Your kids are getting so big. Have you started to settle in?

Looks like fun! We do the zoo a lot, the kids love it and the membership here was not much more than going once, so now it's a "free" thing to do since it's already paid for.

We went to the zoo this week too. Bailey and Avery loved those elephants- they were doing tricks!
