first trip to the zoo

A few weeks ago we took Sophia on her first trip to the zoo! Carl had never been to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo either so it was a fun first outing for both of them.
Sophia is a little young to appreciate the animals and only seemed to notice them if there wasn't anything more interesting, like a leaf or sweatshirt string, in between her and the animal.
We had a lot of fun anyways and enjoyed see the adorable bear cubs and the orangutans. The orangutans really enjoyed showing off for the crowd. Unfortunately I wasn't fast enough with the camera to capture one of them waving, smiling, and sticking out his tongue.
Sophia enjoyed being out and about exploring some place new. She shrieked so much that she scared a few other zoo guests.
We finished off our trip with dinner for Sophia and Honey Hut ice cream for mom. Mom did a better job keeping her food off her face...
It was a great day and we can't wait to take Sophia back next year!

  1. Yay - the zoo! and Honey Hut!! Just wait until next year. Sophia will be so much more aware and excited to see the animals!
