Thursday at the Zoo

At the zoo we were able to see our new little elephant on his first birthday! He is a very talented little guy!

Leave it to Kyrie to be more interested in the fire hydrant than the wonders of pride rock.
So much for the King of the Jungle, he doesn't realize he was replaced by a fire hydrant.


Kyrie aboard the old safari van in the African village.


As you can see, Kyrie had had enough of her safari and wanted out. I think she was overreacting. The van didn't even move, and her poor safari team was stunned by her sudden change in mood. You would think she was going through puberty. Oh wait, it's just the terrible two's hitting a couple months early.



All in all it was a most eventfull zoo trip, and Kyrie thouroughly enjoyed herself. The most wonderful part was, there were no bees! (Last time the bees were swarming everywhere, flying into the diaper bag and everything. I am not only allergic to bees, but I am deathly afraid of them. That is no exaggeration.)

I love the zoo. Charlie and I went while we were in St. Louise...and we don't even have kids. I hear ya about bees...I can pick up a snake or lizard or kill a spider for Charlie but I just freak out when there are bees around. We had a nest of yellow jackets in our backyard last year and I couldn't stand it. Those traps work really well though. This season, we'll have the trap out from the beginning.

Natalie--the zoo looks pretty cool. I have never been to the Louisville zoo--I'll have to check it out! I can't believe that Kyrie is almost 2!!! I remember when she was like 3 weeks old. Are you going to have a close to my heart party soon? I know I missed the one last time, but I really want to come to one, so let me know when you are going to have another one.

Oh ya the Zoo. I love that place, and can't believe how big that elephant is getting. No longer a baby, huh. Yep. Kyrie is such a cutie.

How fun! I love going to the zoo too! (Minus the smell...) The last time we went was in Albuquerque almost 2 years ago! Sad. I don't even think there's a decent zoo within hours here...anyway...I can't believe how big Kyrie looks. They get big way too fast. Love ya~ Jen

Yay! Trips to the zoo are great. Sorry Kyrie had a meltdown during her safari. I tell you what--it must be tough to be two. (or almost two) love you.
