"Here you go Lion! Come eat the stick! Come get it!"
Going to the zoo has been on my mind for the past few months. It seems like it's been forever since we had last been in December. And we went at night. And it was cold.
Last week I figured all the Spring Breakers were gone and this time the sun was shining and it was perfect weather.
I was nervous to do the metro for almost an hour with two kids, plus the shuttle to the metro with a little stroller and the bus ride back to our place. Shuttle, Metro, Bus!! That's a lot of in and out with two! But it worked. I tend to have more courage when I venture out with other mamas too.
Thanks Mandy & Lynne!
I was surprised that Taryn was more interested in the bamboo stick she found then looking at the animals, which were abundant and active. We even got to see the newest baby panda Bao Bao up in a tree as cute as could be but Taryn's attention was more on her stick and her friends.
We had a few touch and go moments like when Taryn had a little accident. I wish there were bathrooms at every corner at the zoo because I always seem t be the furthest away from them. I mean- you know little kids are going to be there! Right!?! :) But she quickly recovered and didn't mind continuing on. Or when she sat on a little railing waiting for her snack and flipped backwards. Thankfully, she held on tight and made it look like she was just doing a trick on the monkey bars. No harm done. Smart girl! Can't wait for her to start gymnastics this week so she can really hone in on her awesome skills! :)
These days have just been so sun filled and great. Fun adventures with two little ones!
