Simple Joys

Posted on: June 20, 2011

Children provide us with so many special moments in our lives.  This past weekend I experienced some of my favorite moments with my son so far.

On Saturday, we took our little guy to the zoo.  I know he’s only 7 1/2 months old and can’t really appreciate the zoo, but we still took him.  It was such a beautiful day and a great day to be outside and observe nature.  Here he is at the start of our day, ready to go: 


As we walked around the zoo, it was fun to watch “G” observe all the animals and people around us.  He particularly liked the fish tanks they had.  The look of amazement on his face as he watched the fish swim around was priceless.  After we saw the fish, he then became one:

Of course, at the zoo, the bathrooms are spread out all over the place.  So, it just figured that my little man needed a diaper change when we were nowhere near a bathroom.  But, that’s what picnic tables are for, right?

It ended up being a really hot day, so we had to make sure “G” had plenty of sunblock on.

I think my little man’s favorite part of the day was when we played in the water.  He LOVES water.  I think he’s going to be one of those kids who would stay in the bath tub and pool for hours on end if you let them. 

By the end of the day, my little guy was all tuckered out, hot, and ready to call it quits.

All in all, it was a great day spent at the zoo filled with many special moments I will never forget.

Awe Leah, glad you had a fun time with your little one 🙂 He looks very happy and you look nice and relaxed, so you both enjoyed yourselves. Reminds me, Chloe was only 3 months the first time she went to the zoo (more of a farm than zoo…) and slept most the time. She was 9 months the second time and it was so so cold and at the time of year in the fall where the days get dark faster and it was dark by the time we got there so we only stayed for an hour at most! Better days ahead though for sure, lots of time to take our little ones here and there to explore this world!

We should take our little ones to the zoo together one day. Seems to me like you could use another trip there without a sleepy baby and bad weather. 🙂
