Lions, Tigers, and Bears!

I guess Wicked is still in my mind ;)

Jony and I have been meaning to take the little squirt to the zoo for awhile now, especially since he had such a good time at the zoo in Chicago. That being almost two months ago, we thought for sure that he would enjoy it even more now. We were right. We finally had the push we needed last night to get out there by being invited by my sister and her in-laws. We were only there about an hour, but he had a great time surrounded by five little girls (four being under the age of four). There is a lot of estrogen in that family, haha! Jeffrey got tons of attention by being the only little boy. He had a blast in the aquarium- his favorite fish being the piranha. I'm not entirely sure what to make of that, but oh well. He rode the carousel for the first time ever and really enjoyed it. He was thoroughly confused why the beaver next to him kept moving up and down, but he had a big ol' grin on his face. He just needs to work on getting the wave a little faster; he kept doing it after we'd already passed Jony. Too cute. We even let him 'walk' around a little while holding our hands to explore where he wanted to go.

The best part of it all? We got ourselves a zoo membership, so we can go as much as we want at no additional costs! We're also invited to all the special little zoo activities that only members can go to (like Zoo Boo at Halloween!) I'm pretty excited about having an additional activity to take Jeffrey to whenever the mood strikes me. I even get a free guest! Jeffrey, being under the age of 2, is already free. We've got lots of fun adventures at the zoo coming up in the next year! As long as it stops raining so dang much.
