Monkeys, Giraffes and Ice Cream!

What more could a girl ask for? We took Natalie back this year for the Ice Cream Safari at the Jackson Zoo. We all enjoyed it last year and who can really resist over 15 different flavors of Blue Bell ice cream? Byron was a little disappointed they didn't have banana pudding again but we still enjoyed the strawberry cheesecake, pralines and cream, birthday cake, butter pecan and our NEW favorite...white chocolate almond. Natalie still prefers mostly chocolate types and thank goodness there was no mango sherbert this year.

The zoo was fun too. Nat was your typical 2-year old. Kinda cranky, kinda in a good mood (as long as you did what she wanted). She loved the monkeys again and the giraffes. The black bears were swimming around in the water which she thought was silly and I'm pretty sure she asked the rhino if he "wanted to fight" (thank you The Grouchy Ladybug). All in all it was a fun day, and it wore her out to the point where she crashed on the couch at 8:30.

Running through the alligator eggs.

She's got it rough in case you can't tell :) I guess it is kinda hard when your feet almost drag the bottom of the stroller but at least she sat in it for most of the day.

Fun! We went to the zoo recently too. Sam really wasn't all that interested in the exotic animals, but he was all about the goats at the petting zoo.
