Here we are entering the Zoo. He's not so sure what to think...
What's that mom?
Here we go!
I could get used to this.
Look! A giraffe!
The penguins are kissing!
The Zoo is always better with friends, and the ladies just can't stay away!
Is it any wonder? i.r.e.s.i.s.t.a.b.l.e!
Look at the wa-wa buddy!
Now I'm thirsty!
And we're home.
I was so excited to take E to the Zoo for the very first time. I must confess that I couldn't even sleep! He's still a little young to fully enjoy the experience, but there were so many fun moments, from all the pointing in curiosity, to his "ah ah ah" monkey sounds. The last picture is the best one I could get of him with his Tiger candy stick because he was compulsively shaking it around in excitement. He took a liking to it in the gift shop and wouldn't let go. I debated whether to give in to the inflated gift shop price tag, but hey, you only go to the Zoo for the first time once. He didn't let go of that silly candy stick for the rest of the day.
There are no doubts that I thoroughly enjoy this motherhood thing. Even on the regular old days that we just stay home together. He makes the mundane magical.
