a trip to the zoo for noah's first birthday

we didn't have any specific plans for noah's first birthday on monday.  we had some meetings in the morning and then decided to see how the day went.  in true unpredictable noah fashion, he was back-and-forth between being happy and cranky.  

we really wanted to get him to a zoo this summer, but never got to go, so when he refused to nap in the afternoon we put him in the car and took a drive with our fingers crossed.  he fell asleep in the car on the ride and we headed to animal adventure park in upstate new york.  luckily he was happy when we arrived and enjoyed going around the zoo.  we loved this zoo and were amazed by how clean it was and how close to the animals we were able to get.

the animals were beautiful and friendly.  it was a much larger zoo than we expected.  my highlights were feeding lettuce to a giraffe, the one-month old baby monkey, the lion, and the tigers.

noah was a champ until the end when he had enough, so we headed home right around closing time.  i would definitely go back! 

love, laurie

I bet Noah really enjoyed himself looking at all the big and different animals right in front of him.

Wow, that worked out well - a long car ride and a trip to see animals! I'm glad he enjoyed it. Great photos, too.
