zoo!

June 30, 2009

the other day, we went to the point defiance zoo & aquarium. i freaking love this zoo. i could go weekly and be happy. since my family from california were in town, we headed there – sammy hadn’t been since we were both really little and my aunt sherry had never been. it was also Harper’s very first trip to the zoo!leetle lemur

they have a great kids section with all kinds of fun stuff, plus a meerkat and ringtailed lemur exibit. the meerkats were SO cute. just digging and rolling around in the sun. we also saw elephants, monkeys, walruses, seals, muscox, owls, penguins, puffins, seahorses, otters and polar bears, oh my! while sammy and i were petting starfish, Harper completely peed through her diaper and i came out my mom changing a naked kiddo on a table in the aquarium. Harper has been changed in some pretty rad places…d

since her oufit was wet and i didn’t bring extra clothes, someone got a souvenir tee with beluga whales on it (sneaky girl, already knows how to get new clothes). she spent the rest of the day in her beluga tee and a dipe, happy as a clam.

the zoo had an awesome exibit going called “Budgie Buddies”. basically an aviary full of birdies and you can buy a stick with seeds on it so they will hopefully land on it and you can hold them. the birds were so pretty, vibrant shades of lime greens, yellows and turquoises. some looked like they had clouds on them. it took a while, but we finally got a couple. Harper wanted to touch them SO bad.budgie

it was an awesome day. i could post about 45,098 more pictures, but i’ll spare you all. it was fun – minus the raging sunburn i got. have no idea why i didn’t slather myself in sunscreen when i did the kid, but whatever. i am sporting some hotpink skin and hope it calms down soon. we finished the day with caprese salads, flatbread pizzas and bellinis at fondi in the harbor. awesome day all around.
