I’ll be honest, I’m horrible at keeping up with things that are going on around town for kids. I never know when the classes at the library are, I don’t pay attention to what is going on at the zoo, Living History Farms or anywhere else , so I’m thankful that my friends do!
Today we went to the Zoo to see Santa on my friend’s suggestion – and to keep the kids from losing their mind by spending 2 days with just their parents. 6 adults, 4 kids = chaos!
Last time we took G to the zoo, she sat in awe the entire time, pointing, but not saying anything. Today she was much braver! Running ahead, pointing at animals and overall, not being very concerned whether me or her daddy were near her. Scary!
There were lots of families there today to see Santa, but beyond the lines it was really fun. We did crafts, ate cookies, saw lots of fish, petted a millepied (not me, of course, but Georgia did) and petted a reindeer!
Fishes, though G was checking out the drain in the floor. The best picture we could get of all 3 girls.
Doing crafts with G. We didn’t necessarily follow the instructions, we ‘freestyled.’
Georgia and the reindeer, I think that one was Prancer, eyeing each other down.
I forgot to mention the first time around that when Georgia first saw the reindeer, the first this she said was, “Momma, I ride it?” I laughed so hard, but honestly, I was surprised that she knew you could ride animals like that because trust me, she’s never ridden an animal!
G and Dancer (or Prancer, whatever)
Full family photo (soon afterward Dancer about gored G with it’s antlers. Not really, but they got close to her cute lil face).
Someone should really tell Santa to watch out for those reindeer, they’re vicious.
