A day at the zoo!

My mom's 5th grade class was going to the zoo, and I ask to tag along. Cameron was so excited to go to the zoo, especially with Grandma! He's been once before, but probably close to a year ago. He had much more fun this time, and was more aware of what was going on. We were there for 4 hours, and I was pretty pooped by the time we left. There were so many hills (and being 7 months pregnant, and ~18 pounds heavier) pushing the stroller all around really wore me out! At the front entrance of the zoo, there's a big black ball, that's kind of like a fountain. Cameron had more fun playing in that water than anything else! We were also able to take a short train ride around the zoo. It was Cameron's first time on any kind of train, and he liked it. (Meaning, he didn't cry: which is pretty equivalent to loving it!) The train took us on a bridge over a creek, through a dark tunnel, and past a buffalo. Here are some pictures (not the greatest, but pictures nonetheless) of our outing! Also, I included the newest of Cameron's drawings.

Luckily I had a change of clothes in the car, because he was soaked!

Taking a break from the fun to eat some chocolate. Yum!

Getting ready for the train ride to start.

This is a sun with a smiley face. The smiley face is a little hidden; this is Cameron's new favorite thing to draw these days!

I love the smiley sun. It's amazing what kids come up with to draw. They are really smart. I love the zoo. Glad you had a good time. You're a major trooper for lasting 4 hours!!

That is so cute! Gwen did a picture of a face...for her first time. I was impressed. I'll have to show it to you sometime. Glad you had fun at the zoo!!
