Our first day there we had a picnice with my brother, my friends Kiera, Levi and Asher. I didn't take any pictures for some crazy reason. But we had fun! The weather was beautiful there. Sunny and warm!
A little visit with a very large elephant! He just walked right up to us.
My very first time seeing a giraff in real life. They are ENORMOUS! This picture really doesn't give it's tallness any justice but seriously it was HUGE!
And this peacock, also huge. I have seen them before at the zoo we used to have here in town. But never, had I seen one this large before. It was beautiful but also mean. What you don't see is the poor goat it had cornered.
A very large teddy bear!
We saw many animals and even bugs at the zoo. It was a lot of fun. We actually had time to see everything but the penguins but we were ok with that because we got to see penguins at the aquarium we went to last June. By the end, Lily just had to give dad a call to tell him all about the animals she saw and the goat she got to pet.
First time Lily got to go to the crab pot. She ate a piece of sour dough bread. That was about the only thing she could eat. She HATED it! Two little pieces and she decided not only did she not like it but she threw it all up into my hand. Her first time vomitting ever. Better my hand then her outfit I thought. She won't be eatting sourdough bread for a VERY long time.
On our way out of town we stopped to eat one last time with my brother and we also were able to dine with our friend Tim who lives over there with his wife Chelsea. We went to Chipotle. It is similar to Qdoba but in my opinion, better. The ingredients just taste better for some reason. Both good places though. I enjoy watching my brother with Lily. He loves her and you can just see how much by watching him interact with her. It was sad to leave him. I enjoyed spending so much time with him.
I was sad Adam didn't go with us to Seattle but I enjoyed the time with my family. It was nice to get away for a while and I was so PROUD of Lily. I know we can definitely handle more trips over to Seattle.
