The zoo. Why do I always think trips to the zoo are going to be so much fun? They hardly ever live up to my expectations. The only time the zoo was truly awesome was when we got to leave school to go there :)
We got to the tortoises and he SO loved them. He hung onto the fence for dear life and just laughed and smiled. His little face was priceless. I'm not sure why he liked them so much because they hardly moved but he did!
He kept hollering to get out of the stroller. Which I wouldn't have minded except there were 8 billion people there and I'm pretty sure 80% of them were kidnappers just looking for little blond haired, blue eyed babies that can run away from their mommies really fast! He was just dying to get a closer look at everything so we let him down and he kept cramming his face against the rails.
He seemed to like the statues more than the real animals. He wanted to touch one so bad so I took him out of his stroller and put him up there and he just started hugging it and kissing it. It was the cutest thing. Watch my son turn out to be a vet or something--how ironic would that be given my disdane for animals? :)
He had so much fun! He was pulling us around as fast as his little legs could carry him! He had a good time dragging dad around. I think he loved getting to spend a whole day with the both of us. It rarely happens with our work schedules, so it was a treat for all of us.

We finally made it to the gorrilla house (which is my favorite). They weren't moving much but luckily, there was one right by the window that he got to see. It's crazy how tiny Tommy looks next to that thing :) He liked it though. He kept patting the glass and trying to see it better.
|Notice the missing shoe.....yeah, that happens a lot. Thank God a little boy saw it and gave it back to us :)|
