Age 3 is worse than age 2. A little observation. I've been thinking of giving Luke to the circus lately but honestly, the circus doesn't come into town very often. But the ZOO...it's always there. So maybe I can give him to the zoo!
We had to go check out Luke's new home the other weekend.
Okay, okay, I joke. But seriously, age 3 really is worse than 2. Whoever coined the term "Terrible 2's" didn't have a normal 3-year-old. Or maybe I don't have a normal 3-year-old. Hmmm. Food for thought. So, Drew is starting grad school is just a few short weeks and I wanted to go to the zoo before we never see him for the next 2 years. It was really fun--except that the weather website was wrong. Really wrong. It was about a million degrees hotter than it said it was going to be. Drew and Gracie were okay but Luke and I had jeans and hot shirts on...I was miserable. He was just sitting in a stroller, so I think he was fine.
Other than that, it actually was really fun! I think Gracie was more excited about seeing the animals than Luke, though.
I think the favorite feature (of the kid's) was the carousel. This was Gracie's first time on one and, well, you'll see her reaction...
So Gracie was excited at first.
And then she decided she needed to hang on to the mama.
She stayed like this the whole time. Silly girl.
She was glad to be back on solid ground. She just wanted to watch. But Luke needed one more ride!
Drew also took Luke in to watch a 3D dinosaur show with him. I told him it wasn't a good idea. Drew said that Luke kept saying "I want my mommy!" Drew took Luke's 3D glasses off and he was better. Geez, that man :)
