Sometimes we do the zoo like this...
And sometimes we do the zoo like this...
The dinosaurs are visiting our zoo again this summer.
And it stinks that we have to pay extra to walk through this exhibit...but my crew loved it.
If you ask Sydney what she saw at the zoo she roars.
She sat by her self and waited for a snack with Mr. Dino.
But then one roared later on the trail and spooked her.
The zoo is best enjoyed with friends.
But these days...we have to slip it in when we have a couple hours, we are ALL full of energy, it isn't too hot, and frankly, with Syd at the stage she is at...I really can't chat with anyone politely. My eyes have to be on her and so this day we made a last minute decision to hit the zoo as soon as it opened. It got HOT but after the dino exhibit we found out we could ride the air conditioned monorail for BIG discount. So we did that...a treat we never splurge on. And every time I do an outing with just my crew, I realize how good it is for them to do this stuff together without the distraction of friends. It's okay for them to notice each other as friends. And it gives me the freedom to go at our pace and do the zoo how it works best for us. Don't be afraid to get out there on your own with just your crew. Your inner supermama comes out and there are always mamas passing by that give you smiles.
Does anyone else get the best feeling in the world when you are leaving the zoo around lunch time and watch other people just entering...at the hottest time of the day....sometimes finding themselves in a line to get in?
