I hope everyone had a great holiday! We made it to the zoo this weekend and had a great time. We saw giraffes and their big icky tongues, we fed donkeys and goats. We checked out monkeys, porcupines, tigers and bears. We even rode an elephant!! Daniel was fantastic at the zoo. He ran from one cage to the next. We let him walk the entire time as it wasn't very crowded (a small zoo). Please don't blast me for the dog backpack (aka leash) my son is wearing in the photos. Since we did not take in his stroller because we wanted to wear him out, and because we knew we couldn't hold him the entire time, we put the backpack on. Believe me when I say we never had to use it!! He listened and held hands with us and stayed beside us the whole time. We were thrilled!! Now some pictures!
