Daniel has always loved animals. From a young age he was interested in learning the names of all kinds of species, and has a tender heart towards them.
So this week's adventure to the zoo was right up his alley - his excitement could hardly be contained on the drive over, or on the walk between each animals area. He fed a giraffe, rode the carousel (on "Runny-Run" the cheetah, no less), saw tons of animals up close and made a new friend. He knew most of the animal names immediately, some before I did. Nothing like too much "Diego" to make me feel intellectually inferior.
The weather was divine, and made the zoo more enjoyable than I remember. The animals were all out to play too, which was fun for everyone. I'm thinking we'll be visiting the zoo on a more regular basis before it gets too hot (which could be next week... you never know in Phoenix!)
