I took you on your first trip to the zoo. We went with Nana, Uncle Matt and Aunt Kim, and your cousins Paris, Vienna, and Talmadge. I must say that this trip was just as momentous for me as it was for you. See, Mom hasn't been to the zoo since her kindergarten class went on a field trip to the big one in Philadelphia. And even then, all she remembers is eating animal crackers and throwing a penny in the wishing well, wishing with all of her little girl heart and little boy-like hair that Reid Carrescia would like her. SO, seeing lions, seals, and elephants was a thrill for Mom.
|We saw a tiger with stripes...|
|...and you wore your tiger one-sie with stripes.|
|We went on a train around the zoo...|
|...and you drooled on Mommy's chest the whole time.|
|But then you woke up...and we saw lots of other animals together.|
|You hung out with Aunt Kim...|
|...And even Nana...|
|...and then we all gorged ourselves on elephant ears.|
It was a great day.
We'll do it with Daddy.
