To celebrate Abbie’s 9 month birthday today, we went to the zoo with grandma and grandpa Maresh. Abbie LOVED it. She does this funny thing when she’s so excited she doesn’t know what to do – she does this ear piercing, earth shattering scream at the top of her lungs. It’s pretty darn funny. She just tenses up and full out screams. She did that a lot today since she was so excited and she didn’t know how else to express it.
Heading into the park. Ready to go!
Quick family shot on the bridge before we went in.
First carousel ride!! She wasn’t quite sure what to think of it and was diving for me most of the time, but she did stay on the rhino the entire time without crying at all.
Checking out the giraffe’s with daddy and grandpa.
We couldn’t resist the giraffe feeding encounter… Abbie was just fascinated with the giraffe’s. She wouldn’t take her eyes off of them, but if they got too close to her, she didn’t really want to touch them. However, she’d reach for them if they weren’t paying attention to her. It was really cute.
Mark’s mouth is open like this in 90% of the pictures I took. Pretty funny!
Looking at the tigers. If you look closely, you can see one laying there. This is when she started to do her excited screams. =)
I couldn’t pass up this cute photo op. (These photos are completely unedited. I wish I knew how to edit them, but I don’t…. yet.
Looking at the baboon exhibit. She watched the baboon walk all the way over to her and he got really close and checked her out. Again, she was screaming.
Watching the otters, while screaming of course.
Another photo op by the lake. Did I mention how much I LOVE this camera?
The bird caught her attention. She watched it walk all the way by and then was trying to look around Mark.
We were looking at some big birds, but I don’t remember what they were called.
Petting the goats at the petting zoo. She has an ear fetish. She loves all ears, Mark’s, Sadie’s, the goats. At least she wasn’t screaming. Much.
Grandpa Dan works for John Deere. Couldn’t pass up this photo op!
Look at the elephants with Daddy.
She LOVES being tossed in the air. (Side note – my grandma made me that sweater and now it fits Abbie.)
Being at the zoo sure is tiring!!
We had such a fun time with her at the zoo. It’s so much fun experiencing things with her for the first time. It’s a whole new level of enjoyment. It’s funny, I remember when I went to zoo’s and actually took pictures of the animals…. But now I have a MUCH cuter subject to photograph! Her first trip to the zoo was in July, when she was 8 weeks old. I cannot believe how much she’s changed in 7 short months. Here are a few pics from the San Diego trip.
This hat doesn’t even fit her anymore!!!!
The screaming is waaay too cute! Love it! Maybe you can get it on video! :)
Looks like you had a good time. The one with your dad and Abbie on the John Deere Tractor is too cute.
