Today we took our daughter for her first trip to the zoo. It was chilly outside but we were bundled up and ready for fun.
|Pyper bundled and ready to go!|
It was surprisingly busy for a chilly January morning. If you ever come to Seattle the Woodland Park Zoo is a must see.
I realized today I am no nature photographer so these pics are courtesy of their website. The zoo is a really good size and takes a few hours to see everything. They have so many different animals and their habitats are all really lush and beautiful. No big chain link fences in sight.
There are a ton of things for kids of all ages. We played in the Zoomazium,
|Pyper has no fear, she loved the big slide!|
fed tropical birds,
|It was kinda crazy, birds everywhere, even landing on my husband's head.|
pet bunnies at the Family Farm,
|I wanted to take one home with me. Anyone have a house bunny?|
and rode the vintage carousel.
|My husband rode with her on the carousel. ANYTHING that spins makes me sooo nauseas.|
Pyper really enjoyed seeing all the animals. It was fun watching her reaction when she would see a new animal for the first time. Lots of coos and shrill screams. She really loved the exhibits with under water viewing areas.
|We all loved the penguins!|
I think a trip to the aquarium is next on our list! It was nice to spend a day outside with my family. It is easy in the winter to feel a bit cooped up inside. I think the fresh ( chilly) air was a nice change to our usual indoor activities.
I also got to work on Pyper's Party invites. It involved lots of searching for graphics online and tweaking them in paint to fit my color scheme. I think I am getting close to being ready to print and start assembling and embellishing. Here is a sneak peek, pretty close to my inspiration invite if I do say so myself!
