My son the Zoo Keeper!

It was a warm day at the zoo on Friday, but beautiful. Of course Parker wanted to visit his favorite animals...the elephant. Off we went. He assumed his Elephant watching position (see below picture from last weeks post)...
and as I looked on to watch a baby elephant playing in the water, my son was balancing on the top bar of the fence horizontally on his stomach, then proceeded to fall over head first into the holly bushes. As quick as I could get him (injuring my knuckle in the process) I began to pull my son back to safety. Parker didn't cry, nor seemed scared. He climbed back up to his watching station in awe of God's creation. I, however, kept thinking security would be by soon to ask us to leave. Good times.

That is so scary. I am glad he is ok. I have been afraid that was going to happen to us 100's of times. Thank God for lightning fast mom reflexes!

Good thing that didn't happen in front of the giraffes where the little stream and big fish are!
