See that space between Jake and Erik and above Pilsbury? That's where I slept for about half of last night. This amount of space it typical for me whether we're in Jake's bed or mine and Jason's. Only when we're in our bed, Lokai joins in as well. *sigh*
We went to the zoo today and had a good time. Sort of. It was stupid crowded with school groups making it really not fun for me. But Jake had a blast. Especially with the petting zoo and the playground. I'm not sure he was super keen on seeing the animals. He was excited to see the tiger before we got there, but of course the tiger was barely visible through the bamboo forest. I was trying to decide between a Botanical Gardens and a Zoo pass, but I think I'll go with the Botanical Gardens. And maybe the aquarium. Everyone I know with an annual pass to the aquarium has loved it and I really like that place myself.
I'm just not good with crowds. Jake is pretty good about staying close by, but it still makes me nervous as hell when he wants to get out of the stroller and walk when there's a ton of people. Not to mention it was hard just to get up to see the animals, and we missed seeing the cloud leopard altogether. I might give it another shot sometime over the summer. If for no other reason than to get more/better photographs. The lion and the sun bear were both asleep, so that was kind of a bummer.
Anyway, here are a few shots from today (with a few more on flickr):
Jake fell in love with this goat, and had quite the conversation with it. I wish I could've heard what he was saying, but I missed it. He's giving it a hug here.
Jake and Evan checking out the flamingos.
I like rhinos.
But the otters are my favorite.
This was one of those duck on a spring things, and Jake had a blast on it.
Driving the school bus.
I got Lori to take a picture of all three of us. :D
