The year Abigail was born, we started a tradition of taking a family trip to the zoo every April. Last year when we went, we had just found out we were expecting Annalee, like the day before. This is a tradition I hope we have the opportunity to continue every year... forever.
Abigail was very excited and was sporting her best zoo outfit!
This was our best attempt at a family photo... as you can tell, Abigail was very excited.
It took a little while for Abigail to figure out how the zoo worked. We would walk up to an exhibit and you could tell she didn't understand there were animals in them. Until we arrived at the Orangutan exhibit... then she started to put it together. :)
She was very interested in finding the other monkeys...
She did not care to stop at the giraffes, but thought the zebras were really cool.
Every year, I have taken a picture with Abigail at the elephants. It almost didn't happen this year as it was at the very end of the day and the 2 year old was acting like it. But I am grateful we took the time to make it happen. :)
We also tried to get one with both girls. This is how it went...
Abigail reached the point where she would no longer ride in the wagon. She also wouldn't let anyone else pull the wagon. So the walk from the elephants to the exit took FOREVER! We luckily convienced her she had to ride in the wagon at the exit... or else we still might be walking to the car.
Do you think my babies look alike? When Abigail was about the same age as Annalee (like within days of each other) we took her to see the zoo lights. So even though pictures don't make it look like they enjoyed it... they really did.
