Last weekend all 4 of us spent a wonderful family day together at the Birmingham Zoo. It was our first time to this zoo and Harper's first time ever to a zoo. Not sure she really embraced the whole experience from her vantage point in the stroller (or sling), but Eli was overjoyed by the whole day! We were invited by a friend, for her daughter's second birthday party, which made for the perfect excuse to get out of T-town and take a little road trip. As part of the party, we had cake (of course!) petted a couple animals, rode the carrousel and saw the whole zoo from the train. E was in heaven! He thought the whole thing was SO exciting. Despite the lack of naps and schedule, both kids did surprisingly well (with minimal meltdowns). The Birmingham Zoo pails in comparison to the St. Louis Zoo, but was a great little trip and one I'm sure we will be taking again.
H's first time on a carrousel - mesmerized!
E and his friend Mae - these two are peas in a pod!
Mae, E and Harper on the train!
Fountain - good thing we brought extra clothes.
Baby girl - 10 months old!
Face painting - an elephant!
The drums - he would have stayed here ALL day!
What a fun day!!! Can't wait to do it again!
