Today we visited the zoo in Richmond. I was so excited to do something special with Audrey before Baby Burns arrives in (gulp) 3 weeks! We talked about it all week...we'd ask her what kind of animals live in the zoo. She'd say, "Elephants, zebras, giraffes..." She has a Little People Zoo and she plays with it all the time and knows all the animals, so she was pretty excited.
We stopped for gas and then breakfast on Main Street. Then we were off!
Our favorite part was feeding the giraffes...it was so cool how close they were! Chris fed them from his hand and got soooo slobbery lol.
The tigers were awesome, they came right up to the glass. She kept saying, "Here they come!"
Gators, my favorite!
She's telling the baby all about the zoo!
And giving the baby some love :) I do love the view from up here!
She thought the rhino was funny with its "big butt!"
What a great day :)
She fell asleep on the way home and even though it was for only 45 minutes, she was happy and playful the rest of the day. I was so happy with how close we got to the animals...it was so wide open and we got to see them all. I'm thinking about making a little photo book so she can remember our trip. I'm so glad we went...next time we'll be going as a family of four!
