We have been looking forward to taking CF to the zoo since we got home! Of course, we wanted to wait until he would really enjoy it. He is now an animal pro and doesn't get as overwhelmed as he used to. I woke up at 7 and shook Adam awake and said "Let's do the zoo today!" He would have agreed to anything at that time of the morning, as long as I let him go back to sleep. So, at 10 we were on our way!
There's that fake smile!
A couple of times on the way, Charlie said things like, "No bazoo". (He adds a "B" sound to the beginning of "Z" words.) I don't think he realized what we were talking about. BUT as soon as we arrived, he got so excited.
We had fun on the carousel! Last time we were on one, it scared him a little.

CF reeeeeally loved this bird!
More zoo fun:
Needless to say, we will be back very soon. Charlie was not happy when we had to leave, but he was asleep before we left the parking lot. What a beautiful afternoon with my family.
Thanks for all the comments on the name blog. There were some funny ones, and also some great advice. I think we are sticking with the name!
Tonight we have another outing...a HUGE Ethiopia group gathering. I can't wait to see our friends again. I am bringing the camera, so I will post pics soon!
Enjoy this beautiful weekend!
