I was scheduled for a 45-minute walk, but it turned out to be 2-1/2 hours!
That’s because we took T Junior to the Woodland Park Zoo today. I am so glad I wore my grubby sneakers because my feet would’ve died in anything else! We walked and walked and walked.
But I was really too distracted to notice if my legs or feet hurt anyway because I was having so much fun watching T Junior see the zoo animals for the first time. His baby face would freeze in wonder, eyes wide and mouth open. You know how you feel when you see something scary but amazing at the same time? Like when I saw humpback whales. Just awesome.
He especially liked the lion (I know this because it inspired him to roar for the next 15 minutes). And, the e-fant (elephant) was really cool too because she kind of lumbered around, even coming toward where we were standing. The best part of today’s trip may have been the monkey because it came right up to the glass where T Junior was parked in his umbrella stroller. They kind of touched each other through the window. Then, they just sat there and looked at each other. So cool.
He was so happy to see a berbra (zebra) because we saw a lifesize plastic one at the feed store and he’s been talking about it ever since. Oh, and a raff (giraffe), too. A friend gave him a Little People Noah’s Ark and there are these cute little giraffes in it he likes (zebras, too, actually).
It was fun, but it was tiring. Plus, it was way hotter than the meteorologists said it would be. We all could’ve worn shorts, but I thought it was going to be cooler so we were all in jeans. I swear, there was a pool of sweat in my shoes by the end of the day.
