My children are animal lovers. They both are completely obsessed with animals, animal noises, looking at animal pictures, petting animals, watching mommy and daddy act like animals (which I’m sure the masses would love in all it’s ridiculousness). If it’s an animal of any kind my babies are smitten.
So, last fall we got a zoo membership on a whim and honestly, I think it’s the best (baby related) money we’ve ever spent. On average we go once a week and love every minute.
Recently we discovered the tapir at our zoo and Bitzy is tapir crazy now. She wants to watch tapir videos, make tapir noises, color them, act like them. Her favorite game is that I’m the mama tapir and she’s the baby. It’s actually quite hilarious.
Meanwhile, my laid back baby boy sits in the stroller eating his snacks, just as happy as can be.
The zoo? It’s always a big hit.
But on days like today when it’s 70 degrees and breezy with the sun shining brightly, it’s absolute heaven.
Everyone seemed to have a skip in their step today at the zoo, we all were walking on sunshine. It was wonderful to see everyone so happy!
Anyway, here are some pictures from our zoo excursion today.
If you have a zoo near you, do yourself a favor and check it out. I bet you won’t regret it!
PS: Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE being a stay-at-home mama lately? Ah, I love it more than words can say.
