Love Overflowing

Mommy and Emily day

on July 17, 2009

Last week, I decided that a zoo trip was in order since the weather was still nice. Emily was a more than willing participant as she loves the zoo and must see the elephants every time we go. It was just the two of us. I know it might sound dumb, but it was the first time we have gone to the zoo alone. We had a blast! We were there from about 9:20 until about noon. Emily WALKED the entire time. We left the stroller in the car and went on our way. We had a deal. If she got tired of walking or ran away, we had to get the stroller. She did WONDERFUL! I was highly impressed, especially since she is still only 2 1/2. I was so proud of her!

The first thing we did when we got there was to check out the sting ray exhibit. Good thing we did that first because it was packed later in the afternoon! Emily didn’t want to pet a sting ray but she did like sticking her hand in the water! I petted a few of them. It was really neat!

We then did our circuit of elephants, hippos, carousel, etc. We even took a ride on the train! (Love being zoo members!) It was great! The weather was perfect and the zoo just started getting busy as we were leaving. Perfect timing for a perfect day!
