I've come to realize with two kids that it is kind of crazy trying to get out of the house in a reasonable amount of time so that was kind of stressful, but once we hit the road and I had a Diet Coke I felt much better ;)
It turns out we weren't the only ones who thought going to the zoo was a good idea - it was SUPER crowded! It really amazes me how rude some people can be! It was also kind of cold so it seemed like a lot of the animals were not out and there was a lot of construction. However, Sawyer had SO MUCH FUN that it was totally worth it. At one point Mike was holding Blair and I was pushing Sawyer in the stroller and he looked up at me and said "Mommy, I like the zoo." Melted my heart. Blair was a good girl too, she just chilled. It was her first time sitting in her stroller like a big girl (she usually is in her car seat which is clicked into the stroller) and she seemed to like looking around and taking a snooze here and there. Sawyer fell asleep on the way home at like, 5:45, and we just put him straight to bed from the car. He slept the whole night, he was tired!
Blair is voguing
thrilled to have juice
I love how he crouched down to check things out
elk antlers, I thought they looked kind of cool
Asking where the fish were
"where are we?"
I loved them in these bright jackets, it was great for Sawyer because I could spot him quickly
Looking unkempt here but this documents that I was there
This was his favorite part, it made the whole trip just seeing how happy he was here.
Mike went to get us a snack and there were a bunch of kids running on the grass, I told Sawyer to go for it. He would run a big loop then come back to Blair and I to check in. He would then say he had to go runnin and take off. This was when I was most thankful for the orange jacket!
Sawyer and I were checking out the lion and this little guy was telling him what the lion does: "ROAR." It was pretty much the cutest thing.
I got the stroller board for Sawyer and we haven't gotten a chance to use it much yet. We brought it to the zoo and he didn't use it until the very end but I thought they looked so cute. He calls it his skateboard.
