Finally, for my non-writing friends, something they can relate to!
We took Alex on his first trip to the zoo today since the weather was fantastic. Alex's sleeping/meal schedule got messed up, but although he had a few fits, overall he did OK. We weren't able to see everything, though, and by the end of the day, he was too tired we skipped the carousel. There's always next time. We took him to the Farm in the Zoo, where he got to see various farm animals. (He's still too young to feed them.) Here are some of the pictures:
The swans with their cygnet.
A deer--I can't remember which one.
A flock of birds in a tree.
A real tiger....
and Alex with a stuffed tiger to take home as a souvenir.
