Zoo day!

Posted on: August 13, 2015

Hubby had a work picnic at the zoo a few weeks ago.

This was our first ‘amusement park’ outing since K was born.  It was definitely an experience.

K no longer wants to be stuck in her little infant carrier when we are out and about, so she’s been sitting in the double stroller just like M.  K differs so much from M when it comes to strollers, carriers and carseats.  M was mostly content being in a carrier or carseat.  M, til this day, LOVES her stroller.

K does not.

K will do everything in her power to get herself out of what she’s restrained in.  This includes arching her back, wiggling while trying to put the harness on her, and crying/screaming until someone takes her out.

K loves being out and watching the world around her.

Our zoo day was pretty quick.  We tried to get to the zoo early, but we got there an hour after the park opened.  We didn’t realize that was the huge morning rush of people.  It felt so crowded.

We took the zoo tram that took us around the entire zoo and saw many of the animals that M wanted to see.  Waiting in that line with two kids was definitely an experience.  M doesn’t do well with lines and would rather be carried through them.  Obviously we had to carry K.  Because there were so many people at the zoo, the line for that tram was long and because we were carrying both kids, we felt like we were in line for an eternity.  Hubby and I tried to switch kids every so often, but neither of us could figure out who was easier to carry.

The tram ride was fun for M because she got to see a good amount of animals.  K started to get antsy towards the end and started squirming and whining.  I guess tram rides aren’t interesting to seven month olds..

After the tram, we went to the company picnic.  K finally got to get out of the stroller for an extended period of time.  M got to eat ice cream and get her face painted.  She had a great time!

Unfortunately, the heat got to us and we had decided to go home once the company picnic was over.

We intended to go back later when the day was cooler, but once we got home and became settled, it was hard to get the momentum to get out of the house again.

We had a great time, but it was very tiring.  I’m glad we got to go and took some fun pictures that I can’t wait to scrapbook!
