Today we took McKenzie to the zoo. We have not been to the zoo since her 1st birthday. It was the greatest weather for the zoo. It was cool when we got there this morning and by this afternoon it had warmed up to 80 degrees! They have a merry-go-round, train, petting zoo, and playground at the zoo also. McKenzie could not get enough of the merry-go-round. I could only ride it once and that was enough to realize it is not something good to do when you have the nausea pregnancy that I have been having! However, Jason and our friend Lo Lo who went with us, were troopers and rode it over and over again while I watched!
The animals were amazing today. We were standing at the gorilla exhibit and this one gorilla was just propped up on his knee watching us. All of a sudden he came running down and sat right in front of the glass where McKenzie was standing. It all happened so quickly that it scared here at first but then she thought that was really cool! She eventually kissed him through the glass. It was priceless. And of all days....I forgot my camera. We were already down the road when I remembered and how I wish I had all that on film. Then we saw the Panda Bears and the baby Panda was dropped right out of her Mom's mouth in front of McKenzie. It was her lucky day! Again, she thought it was very cool!
We had a wonderful day at the zoo. I just wished I had my camera! We will just have to go back!
