I tell ya what, we are loving every minute of sharing all of his firsts with our little L man. Okay maybe not his first hand dip in the toilet this morning (cringing just thinking about it, those will be baby proofed by the end of the day). But he just looks at the world like it is pure magic and it is so fun to be around! His first trip to the zoo was no different. I imagine there will be several trips to the Pocatello Zoo in the future but his first zoo experience had to include more than a bison, a deer, and a bear. ;) haha I've always loved the Boise Zoo and I swear they have added to it every time I go. Now you can sign up for an overnight stay. WHAT?! How cool would that be to wake up to the sounds of monkeys!
Speaking of monkeys, they were the first animals we saw! They weren't moving around a ton and were a little too high up for Liam to notice them. We kept pointing over and over again, "Liam look at the monkeys!" Blank stare. In fact, any animal that was far away, sleeping, or not moving Liam was like, "NEXT!" haha He didn't understand what he was supposed to be looking at and may still be a little too young for the true zoo experience, so there are very few pictures of him interacting with actual animals. But the animal statues on the other hand... :)
The four of us crammed into a photo booth together and after printing the pictures we were all dying laughing. Liam's expression is the same in EVERY picture. HA
The giraffes are my favorite to see at the zoo! I would have loved to see them get fed while we were there, those longs tongues are hilarious, but watching them stretch their long necks to grab a snack from the trees was the next best thing.
Liam learned how to drive ... and a safari jeep nonetheless! We start em' young.
I mean, pure joy all over his face! I'm pretty sure I had the same face when I got to drive my first car too and we all know that his dad has a need for speed. ;)
Liam loves his Sita!!
Something I have never done at the zoo before, well, at least not that I can remember, is the carousel. Taking my little guy on it was definitely my favorite part of the day!
Dada and Sita took Liam in the prairie dog tunnel because his mom is claustrophobic. Personally, I think I got a better view waving at his beaming face from the outside. Sadly, all the prairie dogs were asleep in their holes so we missed them.
I'm pretty sure, hands down, that the meerkats were Liam's favorite. Small, silly, up close, interactive ... right up his alley.
Thanks Sita for taking us to the zoo! We had so much fun!
