What sounds like tons of fun on a hot summer day? Taking two 3 year old's to a crowded zoo, right!! While Jackson's parents were out of town, Daddy, Mommy, Uncle Jeff and I met up with Jackson and his grandparents from Tennessee to spend the afternoon at the zoo. By the time we got there at 11 am it was packed! Trying to keep two three year old's headed in the same direction at the same time was somewhat challenging - like herding cats. But we were never too far apart from each other as you can see in the pictures above. In fact, one woman asked Mommy if we were twins!
There were dinosaurs on display at the zoo and Jackson is currently a dinosaur fanatic. But because they were moving and roaring he was more scared than excited to see them. If he thought that was scary he was in for an unpleasant surprise when the elephant statue suddenly sprayed water at the precise moment he put his face in front of it! It's a pretty forcefull spray and probably stung a little but definately scared him! I caught a little too but I was more upset that Jackson was crying and started crying myself! A whirl around the carousel and we were in a better mood but hungry and tired. After a few snacks it was time to go.
