Pooped from the ZOO

This morning we were invited to visit the ZOO with Parker's friend Jackson, which he kindly refers to as Jack. Jack has a season pass that he bought just for when a friend wants to tag along, and today Parker was that friend. We had perfect parking and perfect weather. The boys had so much fun. Parker loved the elephant and the monkey, but was mostly impressed by all the "wa wa," translated: Water. Yes, my son was most impressed by the water! The lion was asleep or I think he would still be roaring. Another great thing we did was feed the birds. I am a little uneasy entering the bird tent thing since I was once attacked by many birds in Downtown Fort Worth about 6 years ago, but that is a blog for another day! I know that Anne is laughing now! Back to the zoo. We paid our $1 for the popsicle stick with bird feed on the end and entered the tent with a very unhappy door monitor, it seems one of her birds had gotten out. Holding our stick out to attract the birds, Parker was taking it all in, until a bird landed on our stick! Parker got so scared! I don't think I have ever seen him quite make that face and shake his entire body like he did. I must say that when 2 birds attacked our stick, I even let out a yelp. We had a great time at the zoo, and thank you Jackson for inviting us.

That's a funny picture. I have one of Matthew on his 1 year birthday asleep in his umbrella stroller after a day at the zoo. I was going to take Ethan to the zoo on Monday for the first time, but we got rained out! I'm glad you guys had nice weather.

Parker is braver than me---I don't think I would have wanted to stick that popsicle stick out there and risk been surrounded by birds! Glad that y'all had a good time!
