Walk on the wild side

We've had a bit of a crazy week between work (I traveled and Andrew struggled with his band) and other commitments, and it's been raining here pretty much non-stop for as long as I can remember = a fair amount of stress and cabin fever for us all. And even though it was still overcast and ridiculously humid today, we vowed to get outside and do something. Seriously, we haven't even been able to take walks with the stroller or cut the grass in forever. So... we headed across town to the Baton Rouge Zoo.

This was Lucy's first trip to the zoo and I think it was a big success! She's getting old enough now to recognize some animals and even knows a few of their sounds (woof! quack!), and she is definitely not shy about wanting to get close to them. She spent most of the day curling up her little fingers and babbling at them to come over -- this is how she calls Evie. :) Lucy pet the goats, stole some of my ice cream, and even walked around a bit while holding onto our hands -- big girl stuff. We all had a great time and are looking forward to hitting the "big zoo" in New Orleans once the weather gets cooler this fall. Enjoy the pics!

Fun trip! We just took our 2 kids to the Aquarium of the Americas down in N.O. - didn't have time for the zoo there, but the aquarium was great. It was air-conditioned too (a bonus!) and had a wonderful indoor play area for a good half-way stopping point that was nice for a "stroller break". Looks like you guys had fun!!!
