we took lucy to boo at the zoo saturday. it was brr brr cold but that was good because it wasn't crowded. we met lucy's BFF maddie at the zoo. they really are best friends, they hang out all the time. lucy knows maddie by name and whenever they see each at the library they run straight towards each other and call each other by name.
lucy LOVED the petting barn. she went from one goat to the other tending to their coats with her red comb. so glad she likes the petting barn, its one of my favs too. the last couple times i took her to the petting barn she was not into the animals, and i was so disappointed. in fact she seemed really into ALL the animals on this day. she enjoyed the kangaroos, and stood their just watching them. and of course the aquarium she likes. i've been taking her to that since she was a wee babe. she got freaked out by the skeleton diver that kept waving to her. i have to say he was a little creepy looking.
there was an animal show that she especially enjoyed. it's one that they show everyday during the summer. i'm glad they brought it back special for the event.
she also petted an armadillo, a lizard, a opposum, and a madagascar hissing cockroach. she's super into bugs right now since i showed her this bug app on my phone. so when i saw the cockroach i quickly pointed at it and said "bug!" oh then she REALLY wanted to poke and pet that thing! nate and i stood by watching her pet that cockroach and didn't know to feel warm and fuzzy cute or grossed out horrified.
there was also a really cute mini owl lucy wanted to pet badly. they wouldn't let her. =(
she really likes the animals she knows, ones that we've learned or gone over in books. like the owl, fish, bug.
i'm going to really miss taking her to the zoo once it starts getting cold out.
