Put Me in the Zoo! (Or at least take me there again.)
Last Friday, Amelia went to the zoo for the first time! We met friends Kristin and Ava and Maite and Cristiana at the Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Sanford. Tracy had the day off and came along too. The zoo is a community zoo about 40 minutes north of us complete with elephants, a splash park a carousel and a train.
As you can see from the photos, the girls and their mamas had a ton of fun looking at the animals. The elephants were a hit with everyone! We also fed the goats, saw monkeys, peacocks and a sloth. When we were feeding the goats at the petting zoo, Amelia must have thought they looked like big dogs because she pointed at them and said "woof, woof, woof."
Then came the splash park! Ava took right to the water in her stylish swimsuit and crocs. Amelia and Cristiana were a bit more tentative at first, but in the end everyone got - and stayed - very wet. The girls didn't even seem to mind that the water is still cool this time of year.
We'll definitely be going back to the zoo for more fun!
