Since it was the only nice day on a weekend that we’ve had so far, we decided to plan a trip to the zoo. Unfortunately, so did everyone else in the area. It was crazy crowded! You’d think it was the only thing to do on a nice day in the Portland area. Lol
But we endured the crowds in order for our little one to get a glimpse at animals she’s never seen before although she was more curious about all the people instead.
Some of the animals that were up close and easy to see she enjoyed, like the porcupine and goats and chimpanzees.
She also got a kick out of the elephants; smiled and squealed with excitement which is what we’d hoped for when going.
All in all it was a great day. A little expensive with food and whatnot since we didn’t pack anything. Almost wished we had cause ordering food almost ate up an hour of our time since everyone else decided it was lunch time too. After we got our food, it pretty much cleared out. Oh well, next time we know to either bring our own food in, eat beforehand or wait and go to one of our favorite restaurants over in Beaverton.
I love family days. And I love seeing my little one grow and learn. She’s amazing.
