Last month, my friend Melissa invited us to go to the Atlanta zoo with her and her boys, Shane and Justin. It was my first time going to the zoo with both girls without Steve, so I was a little nervous but the girls did great and had a blast hanging out with their friends.
This was also the girls' first official time in the new splash pad. It was SO funny watching Maddie run up to the water, stick a hand in the fountain, and then run away squealing. There were lots of other kids playing there too so Anna had fun being part of the crowd.
Shane and Justin kept trying to stop the water from coming out.
Maddie was sleeping at this point so Melissa hopped up to be Anna's kangaroo buddy.
Shane is cranky here because we were trying to feed the flamingos and they had just been fed lunch, so they had zero interest in our treats.
Anna insisted on getting a map of the zoo as a souvenir (just like Curious George likes to do), and on the way home, she pointed out all of the animals that we didn't get a chance to see. I guess we will have to go back again soon!
