Zoo

We had a really productive and fun day yesterday.  We delivered the Easter buckets to the agency who distributes them.  We also took M for her six-month dentist appointment.  The last time we went she was suddenly terrified of the dentist, and it wasn't pretty.  So this time we read a cute book about going to the dentist, and promised her a trip to the zoo immediately afterwards.  She did GREAT (teeth are healthy, too), so off to the zoo we went...


Petting the baby alligator.




Passing the elephants while riding the train.


We did a lot of the attractions at the zoo that day instead of the typical walking around looking at animals (rode the train, watched an animal show, rode the carousel, etc.), but I knew we couldn't leave without going to the "barn" section of the zoo.  On our way to the zoo, we asked M the animal she was most excited to see.  She told us the pigs.  Not the zebras, giraffes, monkeys, elephants, etc. -- PIGS,  y'all. I wasn't even sure if our zoo had pigs, but then I remembered that it had a "barn" section. Not only did she get to see her pigs, but she also got a chance to pet goats and sheep.  She loved it.

Now that M's older, we'll be going to the zoo a lot more than we have in the past. I'll be sure on our next trip that we make more time for the animals who weren't born and raised on the farm down the street. :)

Hope everyone's having a good week.  Be back soon!
