Spring has just flown by and now here we are in the middle of summer! Hard to believe, isn’t it? I was sorting through our photos (we both take so many photos, it’s quite a task!) and decided to share some more of them.
With that said, here are some photos of our May and June zoo trips with our “real” camera not just my phone.
Every time without fail, Chaseboy must walk around with a map in hand – sometimes just for the beginning, sometimes the entire time. It’s so cute.
I just had to take a picture of this sign. On our way to the zoo for the first time as a family, Ted told me he had been to two zoos and then continued on to tell me, one in Alaska where he’d grown up and one on a trip we’d taken to visit friends in Kansas City, Missouri. I looked at him in disbelief and said, “You mean… that petting zoo?” I couldn’t believe that he considered that a zoo and told him that the Denver Zoo would seem like a continent compared to that! Hence, this sign. (and he totally agreed once we were there) :)
In the new exhibit called The Elephant Passage there is an actual Tuk Tuk (Thai taxi-like ride) which was really fun to show Chase. We shared with him about our experience in Thailand, riding them and that we hoped to someday take him there. He was excited but he really had no idea what the heck we were talking about, let’s be real. ;)
Okay, yep. I am that mom that jumps right in with the kids. Last night, I was actually telling Ted on the walk back from a park, that if I really over think it and worry about what others think of me running around on the play ground with my kids, I end up just sitting on the sidelines watching (not a bad thing, just not me.) He laughed at me and thankfully he encourages me and guess what? He does it too. Last night I actually had a few teenagers laughing at me when I came down the tube slide with my (almost) 3-year-old. Chaseboy and I were laughing so hard, it’s worth it to me. ;) Anyone else do this? (come on, don’t leave me hangin’)
One of Chase’s favourite parts, you might remember from his first Zoo trip post, is the train. We seem to have a bit of a hard time with that silly Zoo train and this time, as we were sitting on it, about ready to go, it literally started “spitting parts”. We all had to get off in a hurry. Chase was bummed but thankfully this time, handled it like a champ.
I wonder what age he won’t ask me to hold him like this anymore. Going on 3 and still askin’. I love it. Savoring it!
Anything in a tank is Shai’s favourite, but of course!
Thanks for popping by! Most photos courtesy of the rad Ted Davis. :)
