Elijah and I went to the zoo twice this week! During summer months, the zoo opens at 8am which is great for us morning people. Plus, you can go before it gets too busy and too hot in the day. Elijah and I have been loving the carousel rides. Elijah's first choice is always the elephant, but since we can ride it as much as we want before 9am, he gets to switch things up. The penguin and the ostrich are his second and third favorites.
The pictures below crack me up. Eli LOVES this ride. He giggles and squeals like a girl at the mention of it. But, for some reason, he shows absolutely no feelings of joy or happiness while on the ride. I ask him "are you having fun??" and he responds with a straight face "uh huh-awesome". From the look on his face, you would think riding the carousel was some form of discipline.
