A trip to the zoo with Grandma

Grandma took the day off to take us to the zoo. The zoo is such a great place for us to go -- it's only 10 minutes away, it's nice and small so we can go through the whole thing in a couple of hours, and it has lots of fun little experiences that never get old to Eva. She is always so excited to be there. As always, we had a great time and made lots of memories. I even went into the birds, which I hate, just because I knew she'd have a great time with them. Even I am growing.
We finally got to see the elephants! They've been taking baths the last two times we've visited.

She loves to feed the ducks and very carefully feeds them one piece at a time. She likes to try to get them to follow her around and beg for the food.

Her favorite. Grandma took the laps this time so I could rest for a little while.

She's always a little intimated by the goats at first.

But it doesn't take her long to brave up.

Grandma couldn't get her the feed fast enough.

Meeting the Lorakeets

A horse was her ride of choice this time.

Here she is mid-"Alllllll right"

Waiting for the train to fill up.

We love you, Grandma!
