Tucker's First Visit to the ZOO!

Saturday we decided to take Tucker to the zoo for the first time :)

"I'm not sure where we're at or what we're doing just yet...."

I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of the Zoo.....I always just feel so bad for the animals. They just look so pitiful locked up. I know, I know, this will have to change now that I'm a Mommy. And it very well may change. It was definitely more exciting anticipating how Tucker would react to the different animals.

The zoo was not crowded at all, which was great! Tucker was able to get up close and personal with several of the animals. Here's a few shots:

I was surprised that Tucker wasn't more into the gorilla playing right in front of him! Really, I think he just thought a lot of the animals were big dogs LOL! He was probably thinking, "Dad and Mom, why did you bring me here just to see these big, funny-looking dogs?! I have two dogs at home that I at least get to touch and crawl all over!"
At least he did think that the giraffe was something to look at! Here is a picture of his facial expression when he saw it looking out over the cage:"Now THAT'S a BIG dog!"

Tucker and I both had the same expression when watching the elephants:
And when you're hot and sleepy, what's better than getting a shoulder ride from Daddy?
Stealing some sugars from my Tuckerbug as he checks out the _______ (insert name of whatever these animals are here)!

Here's are only family photo, notice my reflection in Wes's sunglasses! Yeah, we should have asked some random person to take our picture....maybe next time!

Hope y'all had a great weekend!
