we went to the zoo, zoo, zoo

We took AB to the zoo for the first time on Monday. To the surprise of none I was the most excited about the trip. This girl certainly wasn't bursting with excitement on the way there. 
Dad explained the finer points of exotic birds. Ornithology is not one of his many gifts. Were we looking at an ostrich? A hoopoe? An African crane?
She was still very serious and not quite sure what was going on when we went to the walk-through kangaroo exhibit.
But then we went to the petting area. 
I LOVE ALL THE GOATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm going to mail this picture to anyone having a bad day. If I was witty I'd make it into a meme.
I thought it would be cute to take a mother daughter picture in front of the elephants. Annabelle had other ideas. Isn't she a little young to act like she wants to avoid being seen with her mother? 
"Fine. I'll look but I won't smile. I'll give no indication that you have cared for me and catered to my every need for the last six months." 
Two-thirds of the family is looking at the camera. I call that a successful family picture.

I was so excited for Alyson's first trip to the zoo. And then she slept through the whole thing. I guess I should cut her some slack. She was only 2 months old, but still......MONKEYS!!!! She slept through monkeys!
