Free Day at the Zoo #4

She has been to the zoo five times and has yet to make it there without falling asleep on the ride into the city.

Some animal photos taken with my point and shoot since it has a really good zoom, and I don’t have a good zoom lens for the DSLR yet.

Goodbye 2010

{ Nutcracker my sister brought back from her winter trip to Germany }

We had some good times. 2010 wasn’t a perfect year (since there probably isn’t such a thing), but it was a wonderful year. We were happy, healthy, and together as a family. We couldn’t ask for anything more. Looking back, I can’t believe how much Cadence has changed and grown up.

I can’t forget to mention that my favorite show to talk about ever, LOST, also ended in 2010. I can’t believe that either. I sometimes get a little sad when I remember it’s over, but we also got Filipino channels in 2010 that have brought me lots of new dramas to get sucked into.

Here are just some of the things we did last year…

And much, much more!

Free Day at the Zoo #3

On our way to the city with Bunny along for the trip.
Snacking on some puffs.
Eating corn and fried chicken at Daddy’s school where he ran a quick errand.
Our first time seeing the primates together.
Cady: “Monkey! Oo oo ah ah!”
I think they’re now her current favorite animal after ducks and bunnies.

Free Day at the Zoo #2

Last Tuesday was the first Tuesday of the month, which is the free day at the zoo (after 2pm). There were hardly any people there compared to last month, and the weather was really nice. They missed out. It was warm enough at first for shorts and cool enough for a sweater at times, but it was quite a relief from the 90 degree weather we were having in October!

The great thing about going to the zoo more frequently is that you don’t have to see it all at once. We can walk around leisurely and leave when we’re tired, which doesn’t take too long since we’re with a 15 month old. Since it’s free, we’re not worried about getting our moneys worth. We can see a little at a time and save the rest for later. We’ll probably get a membership eventually.

This is Cady’s going to the zoo face.
It’s becoming a trend.
Notice the milk drool on her lip.
The first thing we did was head to the children’s zoo area.
We couldn’t resist a ride on the carousel.
Cady was a little nervous and held on tight to Daddy.
Then we checked out the petting zoo.

Cady knows that goats say, “ba!”
She also thinks that cows are the same as goats.
She didn’t say anything about the llama.
Anything with a beak and feathers is a “duh” (duck).

Free Day at the Zoo

I found out just in time on Monday that the first Tuesday of every month (after 2) is free day at the zoo, so the three of us went together when Tim got home. Now that her choices mostly consist of walking or riding in the stroller, she actually appreciates having a ride. She likes walking a little bit, but she knows now that she has a good thing going with the stroller. She likes her wagon a lot, too. We were thinking about bringing that next time. I didn’t get as many animal photos this time, but the baby pictures are the important ones anyway.

She’s very excited about our zoo trip. This reminds me of the last time we went.
She is good at taking the cup in and out of the cupholder as she needs.
First up were the red pandas.
Mommy usually doesn’t make it in the photos since she carries the camera, but I really am there as well as the turtle with the really long neck!
Fascinated by fish.
We definitely need to check out the downtown aquarium when Tim is on vacation.
These guys were huge. I wondered if they were an edible species.
She was a little nervous when Daddy went in the fish tank tube. He’s silly.
Watching desert birds, squirrels, turtles, and other small mammals.
This guy looked kind of fake. Is he alive? I didn’t see him move…
Outside the meerkat habitat.
The baby elephant’s name is Baylor, just like my alma mater!
Right after the elephants, they had an Australian Shepherd Dog habitat. We’re not sure why they live at the zoo. They should live on a farm, so they can do their work. Plus dogs belong with people. Cady liked it anyway since she knows the word for dog.
A zookeeper was giving the big cats milk.
We stopped for burgers, chicken tenders, and fries at the cafe. Cady likes hugging plastic bottles for some reason.
We bought a giraffe/blankie friend in the gift shop on the way out. It was great for helping her sleep more comfortably in the car on the way home.

It was a great day.

First trip to the zoo!

Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend, we decided it would be a great day for our first zoo trip together.

Doesn’t she look super excited about going to the zoo for the first time?

We packed pretty much everything.
The first animal we saw were the Macaws. They made Cady cry, so we ran away. I’ll be honest, when they started squawking, they scared me a lot, too.
Things went much more smoothly at the other animals, although there was a definitely scent issue at the monkey cages (to be expected in the summertime). Cady wasn’t really interested in the animals (I was more excited), but she was very inquisitive towards the other people and children at the zoo.
She got tired of being in the stroller, of course, but we had a good walk in there.
First time eating ice cream! Dippin Dots. She had a few soft dots and loved them!
Ice cream on the chin.
She was really interested in this guy. He seems pretty popular among the zoo crowd. Don’t worry. We wiped her hands afterwards.
Bjorn time. Leaving the zoo to walk in the park.
Cranky.
Hungry.
Asleep again. Bye bye!
