First Trip to the Zoo!

It was a fantastic day outside today, so we packed up and headed out to the zoo for the very first time with Colin! I needed to get out of the house and this was great! Poor Colin has caught a cold and was pretty snotty all day, but I think the fresh air and animals perked him up. He was in awe for almost the entire trip to the zoo, with the exception of the nap he took while we waited in the seemingly seven hour line for food. Typical lack of planning on our part...we forgot to eat lunch before we got to the park and ended up starving. Colin had a full bottle while we were there and was an angel the whole time. It was packed there today, so I did not get to spend as much time showing Colin the animals as I would have liked. With the droves of people, you kind of have to keep moving. I am pretty sure his favorite part was the turtles that were in the alligator exhibit. The glass tank allowed Colin to stand on the ground and touch the glass as the little turtles swam right up to him. He laughed at them! It was so cute!

The two pictures that I posted are the only two pictures that we took at the zoo. We remembered to grab the camera, but once we got to the zoo, we realized that the batteries were dead!! I think we need new ones...they are not holding a charge for very long anymore. I plan to take Colin back to the zoo on a weekday when we can spend more time without the crowds. We live very close to the Ft. Worth Zoo, which is awesome! Such a great place!

We definitely tuckered the little guy out...he fell asleep in his carrots tonight! LITERALLY! His head flopped right down into the spoon. Poor thing!! I managed to wipe his face off and get him into bed...this was at 6:30!! If he sleeps well tonight, I may take him to the zoo every day. haha!
