Back to the Zoo! It was not only fun to watch Baby Boy get excited about seeing the animals, it was also exciting for the Hubby and I to see that some parts of the Zoo were exactly the same as we remembered when we were little. I also love how they let the peacocks run wild all over the grounds and this was the first time I have ever witnessed one preening for all to see!
The bears seemed to be his favorite animal on this trip. I think because they were actually moving around and seemed so huge. He even started to whimper when we moved away from the bears to take in more animals. Don't worry little fella, we'll go back again soon!
In addition to viewing the animals, the Zoo also offers up a variety of (gasp) germs. Yeah, that's right. It's a smorgasbord of lovely bacteria just waiting to cling to anything that it touches. Case in point...

You know you are a parent when you are getting ready for bed and you have the following conversation with your spouse:
Me: "Isn't it great how quickly we were able to clear up that pinkeye?!?
Hubby: "Yeah! It's as if it never happened!"
Me: "I know!! I mean, of all the illnesses that Baby Boy has had or could have... I'd say pinkeye is best so far!"
Hubby: "I couldn't agree more. We kicked conjuctivitis' ass!!"
:: High-five, lamps off, a restful night sleep ahead ::
So all-in-all it was a successful weekend. Our first trip to the Zoo with our son was a hit, Mother's Day was wonderful, and pinkeye had nothin' on us!
I will leave you with this shot. It just makes me smile! Chubby little toddler hands, and no, that is not an eclipse... it's Baby Boy's cheek!
Have a great week!
