Oh, Spring. We missed you.
We received a zoo pass as a Christmas gift from RJ’s awesome aunt and uncle; and have been waiting for a nice spring day to use it. Monday was the perfect day. And we had the best time.
At first, Elijah just chowed down on some snacks and pointed at birds. But when he saw actual zoo animals, he was hooked.
The monkey was pretty interested in actual monkeys. The little ones were hard for him to spot in the trees, but he sure could spot the gorillas. He also enjoyed looking at the signs with the pictures of all the animals, which are apparently just as interesting as live animals to a one-year-old.
I think the giraffes were his favorite. Especially since he kept seeing their heads from other parts of the zoo, which was very exciting for him.
Oh, thanks for showing us your chewed up graham cracker…such a silly man.
The buffalo were pretty cool, too.
The last thing we saw was the Arctic area, where we saw polar bears outside. (We didn’t see any swimming in the underwater tunnel, which was a bummer.)
We did see seals! Eli thought that was pretty awesome.
There was a group of people near us in the Arctic area dressed as pirates. Pirates are distracting to a little monkey. Even when you are in a tunnel under water.
A storm was coming as we left, so it got a little bit windy…
It was such a fun day. I cannot wait for us to go again.
