Our first visit to the zoo

They were so proud of themselves for being able to do what all the big kids were doing.

They were fascinated by all the animals. But I think at times they actually enjoyed watching the other kids at the zoo more than they liked watching the animals.

Daniel writes:
The petting zoo might have been their favorite part. Isaac even found a goat that was his size .

Will saw how much fun he was having and started waddling over, laughing as he went.
It was a crowded high traffic area, but all Will could see was Isaac and the goat.

So when a full grown sheep lurched into his narrow field of vision, staring him down, looking for a treat, Will was instantly and horrifically terrified.

of course mom was there for some stability (as I was busy documenting the chain of events for historical purposes). Will seemed to enjoy the zoo later on, but I think he was always looking over his shoulder for that massive sheep who could undoubtably materialzie out of thin air at any moment.

Hi Will & Isaac-

We love going to the zoo. Maybe next time we can all go together!

"I like the Pittsburgh Zoo because it has a leopard. I love you, Will, Isaac, Uncle Daniel and Aunt Andrea," says Jaelyn.

"I love you Will & Isaac! I hope you had fun!" says Addison.

We miss you all!

ok. Number 1, I've been in that caboose.
Number dos, Will: the sheep lead very uneventful lives there in the petting zoo. You probably made it's day. A tip for next time: when faced with an unexpected staredown with a sheep, just pull the wool over it's eyes.
Number three(speaking from W & G's last zoo experience), be forewarned: if you get too close to a baby giraffe, it might lick you. And they have very long tongues, so really, two feet away from the fence still may be too close.
cute pictures, glad you guys are doing so well!
