Our favorite activity at the Woodland Park Zoo is the bird feeding room. $1 for a stick of birdseed translates to more than your money’s worth in little girl giggles.
So far, we have not been able to get our act together and get to the right place and time to feed the giraffes – or the elephants. I have a feeling that might even eclipse feeding the birds.
I’m trying very hard to focus on the fun and adventure right in front of me and not let myself get jealous of everyone heading off to BlogHer, or my husband’s adventure to Istanbul.
Camels, tigers, polar bears… what animal at the zoo would most capture a toddler’s attention?
Could it be a squirrel?
Dee took us to the Alaska Zoo during our recent visit, and Gem was captivated by this little red squirrel.
He didn’t move a lot at first
But I promise he was real
They played peek-a-boo and hide and seek for a while
Then one last peek as we said good bye.

This is my view most of the time: the back of her head, with or without my hat.
and, she’s off… excuse me, I’ve got a toddler to chase
