Yes we went to the zoo again. In fact it was less than a week after the last time. What can I say, we love the zoo and are trying to get our moneys worth out of the annual membership. This time we took my niece Olivia with us. I was a little worried about having two toddlers at the zoo, but Waldo was there to help and they are both pretty well behaved.
We picked Livi up and headed out.
We bought two little water spraying fans because we knew how hot it was from the last time we were there. The girls spent the first 45 minutes or so watering the zoo.
You get the idea. Lots of water being sprayed at the zoo, very little of it being used to cool anyone off.
We tried something we hadn’t done before at the zoo. We went to the bird show. We were sure the girls would have a blast.
They couldn’t have cared less.
Waldo and I thought it was awesome!
We walked through the petting zoo, but only Livi was interested. I think Lily was too tired to care. We stopped at the kangaroos right before the petting zoo and Lily laid down on the ground. When I asked her if she was ok, she told me “I’m very tired”. I wish I had gotten a picture of it.
Next we hit up the rainforest hopping to get cooled off a bit. We didn’t.
On our way to the tiger Livi sat down to mess with her shoe. Lily thought it was a good idea.
I did not.
We stopped by the elephants on the way out.
Livi was asleep before we left the parking lot and Lily was asleep just before we got home. Thankfully they both survived the transfer to the house and stayed asleep for another hour or two.
Then we went swimming at my Aunt’s house.
We had a great day with both girls. They were so cute together and it is one of the biggest reasons that I’m sad that we are moving again (post coming soon). I’m trying to plan another trip to the zoo with Livi and her Mama before we go.
For those of you keeping score, we’ve been to the zoo 7 times this year. I think if we go once more we will have paid for our membership. I’m pretty happy about it.
