For Father's Day this year, Daddy requested a trip with me to the zoo. With the arrival of the new baby elephant, Zuri, I was very excited for my first trip to Hogle Zoo. The doors opened at 9 am and with a high temp in the 80's, we decided to get in first thing. We got there at a few minutes to 9 which left us time to get my stroller packed up and the sunscreen out. Mommy got me out of my car seat and started to grab the sunscreen when I leaned over and vomited all over myself, the ground and the side of her car. Yuck! After one more round of vomiting, my parents changed my outfit and cleaned me up. They were debating whether to stay or go but I wasn't acting sick and I wanted to see Zuri so we threw the yucky clothes in the trunk and off we went!
Despite the rough start, we had a great time at the zoo. There were very few people so as we went from exhibit to exhibit we were usually the only ones there. Zuri was out and in rare form and we got a great close up view of her drinking. But my favorite part of the zoo was the train and the carousel! As you can see I had a great time!
