25 Before 25: Take C to the Zoo!

Hooray!  I can cross off #10 on my 25 Before 25 list.  We took C to the zoo for the first time, and he…was generally indifferent.

Sure, he started out with a smile...

He enjoyed seeing some of the fish, and he smiled at the monkeys.  But the sound that he made the most during our trek around the zoo?  The sound of a loud yawn.  Yeah, my child was bored at the zoo.  He was more interested in watching the other children than seeing the animals.

We saw some bears fighting!

He thought that was pretty cool.

After he saw the bears fighting each other, he wanted to give me some of his sweet baby kisses.

And one of his darling baby hugs.

The animals that we were able to get closest to were the prairie dogs.

He had fun leaning over and peeking at them.

Then I made them pose for a picture. :)

We finished off the trip with a visit to one of our favorite exhibits – the penguins!  C was very ready to go home at this point.

"No more pictures, please!"

Even though Hubster and I enjoyed the zoo more than C did, I’m still happy that we took him to experience it.  I hope he’ll enjoy it more when he’s a little older! ;)

  1. I love that you have a list of things you want to do as a family. What a great idea!!!!!!!! I started getting my zoo membership before our oldest could even start to care about the animals. We live very, very close, so I would pack her up and go just to walk around.
