This morning Tim & I took the girls and met some friends at the zoo. We've never taken our girls to the local zoo. (I know!).
I carried our 1-year-old in the ERGO (best carrier ever...in case you're wondering)...or on my shoulders.
She pointed and smiled at everything - she's the most peaceable baby.
Our 3-year-old fed the giraffes. They have really long tongues and are a little bit slobbery.
She then proceeded to ask for the map and to "direct us" to which animals to see next.
On the way home, I asked her which animal was her favorite. "The anteater!" she said enthusiastically. "No..." she said, changing her mind, "The snake!"
My favorite? Probably the monkeys. But - not to get all animals-rights-activist on you - it kind of breaks my heart to see animals all caged up like that.
WHAT ABOUT YOU? Do you enjoy going to the local zoo? Do you have a membership? Why or why not?
