Where We Go To The Zoo!
Gail and Joe and James offered to take me to the Central Park Zoo to see the puffins for my birthday! That was in August, and with my terrible summer schedule and their school starting...well, March is when our trip came to fruition.
Wednesday we took the train in to the city and went to the zoo! After many subway elevators that smelled delightfully of urine, we were strolling around the city with a curious baby.
We got there just in time to see the Sea Lions feeding, where they put on a little show.
James was not so interested in the sea lions, but he did like watching all of the big kids running around.
These are the tufted puffins, which look different than I thought they would. James has this stuffed Noah's arc that has tufted puffins and I thought they were crazy looking fake birds from some crackhead toy designer. Turns out I was wrong.
James liked the sheep in the petting zoo.
Joe liked the giant cow...or bull...I'm not sure - I didn't look!
At FAO Schwarz, James found a toy he liked
a little rubber ball! He didn't even look at the jungle of stuffed animals in the front! He crawled around chasing his rubber ball, looking at the outlets they have in the floor and checking out the wheels on his stroller. He wasn't really interested in the rest...
While we were running around checking out how crazy awesome everything is...
James fell asleep.
We made our way back to the LIRR, and James eventually woke up.
He pretty much entertained himself
at all the crazy people on the train.
And we had a great time! Thanks for my birthday trip, Gail and Joe and James! It was superfun!
