Mia's 1st zoo adventure

Daddy is showing Mia his favorite... turtles! She loved the turtles and ducks in this pond.
We joke that Mia is a peanut because she's so small, so when we told Mia that elephants love peanuts she got a little nervous that the elephant was coming to eat her ;) But once she realized it was coming through the fence, she loved watching the elephant!
I die!! This girl!
Just trying to get these 2 interested in each other! Actually, Mia was totally interested. So much so that I fear she scared Ryder away, ha!
Clapping and cheering Ryder on before he bent over and drank as much of this water as he could, ha ha! Kids, man!

I hardly need to write anything about this day because the pictures pretty much say it all buuuuuuut... I'll just share some of our favorite moments from this day!
We met Courtney and Ryder at the zoo and we seriously had the BEST time with them! Mia loved waving to the animals! We loved the giraffes but I'm totally sad to say that we forgot to feed them. The line was pretty long when we saw the option, so we decided to wait until closing time to feed them and get a picture. I guess this means we just need to go back ;) Mia's least favorite was the birds on the ground. She loved the little birdies through the fence, but there was one section where you can walk around with large birds. Mia was trying to scramble out of her stroller to safety, ha ha! Our very favorite part was the splash pad! This was Mia's first time playing in the splash pad! There was a little spout of water that was the perfect height for Mia to enjoy! Ryder and Mia ran around like crazy kids and it was so fun to watch them!! This day really couldn't have been any better! It was the best watching Mia enjoy herself so much :)

Seriously?! Is there ever a time when Mia isn't happy?! I think you have a water baby on your hands based on those splash pad pictures!! She's not afraid of anything!

That looks like an AWESOME zoo! I've only ever been to our Cincinnati one, and while it's pretty good, I want to visit new ones!! :) And I don't blame Mia.. large birds walking around is not my thing! ;)

I love the zoo. My favorite zoo is nestled right off of the coast of San Francisco, or the San Francisco Zoo. :) It's usually kind of foggy and cool and I just love it. Mia looks like she had a great time! She is such a happy spirit, it really comes through in the pictures. So sweet. Take care,

Shauna
