Alice skipped school and I had a day off work so Baba (Alice's grandma, my mom) took us to the zoo. Alice was in a semi-good mood throughout the day. Her two year old independence is full strength right now and pretty frustrating to deal with. Luckily, my mom was a school teacher for, like, 40 years so she has infinite patience. Seriously... infinite.
They fed the goats, which was hilarious to watch.
All Alice wanted to see were the cats that said meow. We settled for the sleepy lion.
We couldn't resist the pony rides. She is getting so big!
I had a great time, sitting back and letting Baba take the reigns for the day. I think she had fun too.
It was a beautiful day and such sweet memories were made.
