We took Claire to the Hogle Zoo last month.
She thought it was pretty cool...I think.
It was one of those days where you try to do something nice for your toddler and they could care less & they just want to throw tantrums over the littlest things.
The only thing I knew she really enjoyed was the Merry-go-round.
& even that turned into a tantrum when we had to get off her beloved zebra!
BUT, besides the 19 month old mood swings we had fun as a family.
I think the favorite animals of the day were Elephants and Gorillas.
Claire was really into the Gorillas and had her nose up against the window.
She wasn't really paying attention to the large animal, but focusing on something else for a second.
All of a sudden, without Claire knowing it the Gorilla swung up and got right up against the window.
Claire freaked out! She jumped back so far I had to catch her.
After that she wouldn't go near the window in fear that the Gorilla would try to kiss her again.
It was a parenting fail because both Josh and I just stood there laughing.
Now whenever she sees a picture of a Gorilla she makes scared noises.
