I love this time of year. For the most part, the days are warm and clear and the nights are cool. It was one of those perfect days this past weekend so we hit the zoo. So fun!
As always, first stop Stinkingoes!!!
See how happy she looks??
The reason for her tears? Moments after I walked away, she'd decided that riding by herself wasn't such a good idea; she wanted mommy. Poor thing. Just when I started to think the separation anxiety issues were a thing of the past, they pop up again. After a few minutes of hugs she calmed down and was ready to move on with her day. Unfortunately, she didn't want to take another spin at the carousel, even with mommy. Bummer. It had been a long day and she was tired. I'm hoping it was more about that than other stuff. Probably her age has something to do with it.
Anyway, at that point we moved on to Georgie's favorite part of the zoo: the petting area. G could happily spend her day brushing and stroking the goats and sheep. She talks to them, makes friends with them and vigilantly follows them from place to place attending to their imagined needs :-)
