Love Overflowing

Possibly one last trip…

on November 25, 2009

to the zoo for the year. Total spur of the moment decision on Monday. The weather looked fairly nice in the morning so we decided to head out to the zoo for our possible last trip of the year. Possible last trip with just the two of us.

It was GREAT! The zoo was pretty empty so it was similar to having our own personal zoo. Of course the first thing Emily wanted to do was see the elephants so we headed over to the River’s Edge. We didn’t see another soul in there until we made it to the elephants. I have to admit, it was pretty amazing. No crowds, being able to see without straining and letting Emily meander as much as she wanted (she wasn’t in a stroller).

We also saw the tigers, the bird house for the first time (usually she doesn’t want to go in there), rode the train, rode the carousel and walked quite a bit. We were there for about 2 hours and didn’t see as much as we normally do. That was to be expected though since Emily was a little tired and Mommy walks pretty slow these days. The most important thing is that we had a good time. Just the two of us.

Not sure if there will be any nice days in December but if there are and we have no plans, we might try to take another trip over there. I really want to go in the evening to see all the lights. They were in the process of putting them up and it looked like it would be neat to see.
