E and I have been so excited to take James to the zoo. He's not nearly old enough to really realize what is going on, but we were excited nonetheless. Especially since last year the zoo had a baby boom! Three baby tigers, a baby elephant and a baby giraffe were all born in the same year that James was born.
We met E's family at the zoo around three (after a nice long baby nap!) and had a fantastic time looking around. James was happy to be passed from person to person and look at all the animals. The weather couldn't have been better, a real taste of spring.
Now, for the plethora of photos:
Grandpa Steve and Granny Con love to see James. As you can see James was quite alert and enjoying looking around.
The baby elephant is only a couple of months older than James and is SO DARN ADORABLE!
Family photo with some giraffe.
James seemed to quite like sitting on Daddy's shoulders and looking at the tigers (can you see the tiger above James's right shoulder?)
Mama tiger had triplets last year! And it looks like she's lost all the baby weight!
Love the monkeys and the owls.
At the end of the day I decided to take this silly self photo of our group in the reflection on a black granite ball. So, there is me, E, baby in the stroller, Steve, Connie, Chelsea, Joe and David. Fun day.
