At the Zoo

We went to visit Auntie Rachel this weekend and had a heckuva time. 
We were going to the zoo the next day but when we got to Rachel's we found out that there were goats with free pellets to feed them right on the corner!
So, of course we had to do that. 
There were also a couple of chickens and ducks. One of which had hair like George Washington. 
You'd have to see it to believe it. 

Sadie and Auntie R, hanging out:

The next day we went to the zoo. Sadie was very excited and the first 2 things she said upon awakening were Is Auntie Rachel awake? and Can we go to the zoo now?

So we went to the zoo. Here she is with Tristan, aka Uncle T. Whose hand she insisted on holding throughout a lot of the zoo:

Here's Dada, going down the slide-tree as well:

Sadie asked to run in the grass for a few minutes. And run she did. Back and forth and back and forth:

She saw some folks eating ice cream and said I want ice cream! So we got her her own kiddie cone. 
For the next fifteen minutes, while she was eating it, she couldn't have cared less about the animals. She'd look up and then just start licking her cone again. I realized she has had ice cream, but never her own ice cream cone. 
Wow. That's pretty exciting. I couldn't blame her after that.

Sadie loved this monkey. Why he has a white beard like Dada? Dada, that monkey has a white beard like you! Bet you didn't know Will has a white beard. Neither did we. 

Looking at the hippos. We tried to get her moving and she said No, I'm not done looking yet!

Looking at the giraffe. Neato:

Can you see how tired she is here? She slept for THREE hours after we left. This child has never taken a 3 hour nap. Seriously, never, I am not exaggerating.

I wish we lived closer to the zoo. If only for the nap-inducing properties.
