Zoo Day

On Saturday we were trying to think of something fun to do and Mike and I threw out a few ideas: outlet shopping (that quickly got vetoed by Mike), the Newport Aquarium, or the zoo. We decided on the zoo! It was a sunny day and I thought we would have fun and enjoy some fresh winter air. Sawyer said he didn't want to go but I told him that I was pretty sure they had fish and he quickly changed his tune. I have never seen a kid more obsessed with anything than Sawyer is with fish.

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.
