The first animals we saw were tigers. There was one walking around too, but she went behind a bush.
This is what Baby Grady thought of tigers:
|"I have never been so bored in my entire life."|
Then we saw giraffes, which are just the most delightfully goofy, part-alien critters ever, don't you think? They look like cartoon characters. Baby Grady was really taken with the ducks that hung out in the water in the giraffe enclosure. Strangely, I heard a much larger child shrieking with excitement about the ducks. I mean... okay.
|"M R DUCKS!!!"|
This is what Grady thought of the meerkats:
|"I refuse to even look in the direction of that most boring of all creatures."|
But the zoo did have some features that enchanted Baby Grady. Notably, Daddy's shoulders were at the zoo!
|"I'm the tallest baby in the world!"|
And also, his stroller!
|"Strollers are even better when you are not in them!"|
And a very intriguing rope spider-web for climbing upon.
|"That big-kid keeps saying he is a spider. I'm a baby and even I can |
clearly see he is not a spider. I wish he would get off my web."
And finally, Grady's hat was at the zoo, and that thing is a riot.
|"I am definitely not at all interested in the monkey |
swinging from branch to branch over my head."
We'll be back, zoo.
