Zoozy Zoo

For those of you whose children are/were Barney enthusiast I bet you're now singing the "What did we see at the zoo? What did we see at the zoozy zoo" song. No? You weren't? Parker has seen the "Let's go to the Zoo" episode a gazillion times and could watch it a billion more. He LOVES "aminals!" His preschool has been learning about zoo animals this month so I figured it was a perfect time to go. I told him yesterday before bed that we MAY go to the zoo and when he woke up the first thing I heard over the monitor was "MOMMY, it's a zoo day! I see elephants and lions roar!" It was 68 and sunny so it was a great day to go even though the rest of SC apparently thought so as well and it was PACKED!

Parker was most excited to see the lions, tiger, elephants, giraffes and zebras but left the zoo talking about the cow and meerkats. haha. Parker was really good for the most part and walked with me the whole time. Avery slept the whole way there and back. While we were there, she was just along for the ride in the stroller. It was almost as if she knew this day was for brother and she was just content to ride around and site see. Minus two brief meltdowns and my inability to fit the stroller into any of the bathrooms so I "held it" ALL DAY LONG, we had a wonderful Parker, Avie and Mommy day at the zoo!

Here are some pictures of our day!
Classic Parker face! He was afraid of the birds flying overhead.

...Avery on the other hand tried to pet the bird multiple times and enjoyed her up close encounter. EXCUSE my puffy, non-eyelined eyes. Clearly the "sleep training Avery sleep deprivation" has caught up to me!
Checkin' out some "aminals"

"Mommy, MEERKATS!"

This was the grumpiest, fattest meerkat! All of the other meerkats were running around and making the crowd laugh. Clearly this guy needed some happy pills and Jenny Craig.

Standing like a Flamingo

Hmm.... I love that sweet face!

Precious Avery feeding herself. Like I said, she was just along for the ride today and SO easy going!

LOVE THIS FACE! Parker has mastered the art of eye rolling. The elephant was pooping and this was his reaction.

Love her.

Another of my sweetest girl!
Fun day at the zoo! :)
