visiting rio

addison went to the zoo last week...twice.

her daddy took her on tuesday and i took her on friday.

this kid knows her way around the zoo. she should be a tour guide there.

but seriously.

anywho, we met mary and gavin there and we brought addison's wagon. she's really wanted to take it to the zoo, but we just never have. until friday!

it was really nice outside. and it wasn't too crowded. it's definitely better when all the kiddos are back in school.

when addison went with her daddy on tuesday, they rode the train. she really wanted to ride the carousel, but her daddy gets a little dizzy, so they couldn't. that was the first thing we did when we got to the zoo...

after saying hi to rio on the way in, of course. addison loves that movie. i still have yet to see it. there are 3 blue birds right when you walk in the zoo, and i guess they look like rio. so addison has to say hi to them on the way in and bye on the way out.

addison wanted to ride the giraffe on the carousel. she was all excited until she started walking up to it. i think she had second thoughts, but i was able to get her up on her giraffe and she did great! she didn't want to let go of my hand at first, but she did eventually. such the big girl!

she loved riding in her wagon.

i think she loved it even more because gavin was in there with her.

we tried to take some pictures but none of them turned out great. either addison wasn't smiling or i was making a funny face. so this pretty much sums up our attempt.

addison also loved tickling gavin. she would reach over and tickle his belly. i don't think it really tickled him, but she thought it did and she would always laugh.

goodness he is so cute. i can't believe how big he's gotten.

and momma mary. i love these 2!!

it was definitely a successful trip to the zoo. hopefully we'll be able to go back a few more times before it gets too cold to go. we've definitely gotten our moneys worth out of our membership!!
