It's All Happening At The Zoo

 Someone told me It's all happening at the zoo. I do believe it, I do believe it's true.

We had so much fun at the zoo last week.  We met Ms. Teresa and Shandi Joy there to celebrate her 2nd birthday.  The girls are so much fun together and Teresa and I have such a good time just watching them interact.  

This time around, Lilly rode in her stroller as we walked through the zoo, I think this is only the third or fourth time we have used the stroller, usually we put her in the pack, but it gave Shandi and Lilly the chance to ride side by side and talk and share food.  They are at a phase where they want to have everything the other one has ... Lilly had on her sun glasses and she said to Shandi, "My Sun glasses, See."  Then Shandi replied .. "I "eyes" Too!"  It was pretty much the same thing all day.  Which gave Teresa and I lots of time to talk Big Girl stuff.  We must have been quite the sight ... two sets of girls just talking and talking.

The John Ball zoo, just opened a new bear exhibit, where they can come right up to the glass.  Lilly LOVES bears and talks about they all the time.  You can usually find them in our yard sleeping, having a picnic, or eating honey.  When we first saw the bear, Lilly was mesmorized, obviously it was her first time seeing a "real" bear.  But as it got up close to the glass and us, she had to cover her eyes as she was "scared, a little scared."  The funny part was how she kept looking through her fingers to see the bear, even when she was a little scared.  It was like a train wreck, she just couldn't look away!

We can't wait for our next play date with Shandi and Teresa ... maybe it will be at their new lake house! :)
