August – 2007 –
On the last day of our zoo week we will see our trip to the petting zoo. I really liked the fake over-sized hollowed-out tree the best. I ran around in there quite a bit.
Today we look at the wallabies, the budgies and the mountain lions. My favorite was the wallabies, they hop like bunnies and I like bunnies. We also saw the budgies (they are really birdies). They weren’t real exciting, but one birdie landed on Mommy’s head and daddy got it off. Then it landed on my head. I think that’s how they say, “Hi.”. I’m glad they all didn’t say, “Hi.” I blew them kisses and we left. We also saw Mountain Lions. They roar, and they live in the mountains. Sometimes they walk through neighborhoods in our town.
Today we look at the elephants. You can’t see them but you can see mommy demonstrating what an elephant says. I tried it but mommy and daddy laughed. Maybe I did it wrong. I will have to keep practicing.
Day two of our zoo trip. Today we focus on the Meerkats and spend a bit of time playing in the adobe hut area. I liked that because the adobe huts had doors my size.
Last week I went to the zoo and my daddy took a whole bunch of pictures (about 117), so this week will be a themed week. Each day will be a different section of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. Today is our visit with the giraffes. They had a new baby and she is much taller than me.
I am practicing talking on the phone. I hear a lot of teenagers do it, and mommy and daddy seem to like to do this too.
Sometimes daddy puts that little box on the ground and I like to try to get it to see why he finds it so fascinating.
I am learning a bunch of new stuff. Here I am practicing saying “no”.
