Ice Cream Safari

On a whim we decided to go to the Jackson Zoo's annual Ice Cream Safari. We hadn't been since Nat was about 2.5 or so. First off, it has tripled in the amount of people that come out for it. We waited at least 45 mins in the car just to get in and find a parking spot.

We were a little worried about our timing, since it was smack dab in the middle of Harper's first nap, but that girl was a champ! It was the other little goober who gave us fits, imagine that :) Natalie immediately saw the new splash pad they had put in right by the entrance and pouted the whole time about wanting to go play in the water. Harper had it easy. She was perfectly content being pushed around and fed ice cream. I mean what girl wouldn't?

Nat only tasted about 5 out of the 20 or so different kinds of ice cream. She had to completely finish each cup before moving on to the next one. Her favs were birthday cake and cotton candy. Harper didn't care what you gave her as long as you didn't take to long between bites.

Next year we may have to divide and conquer. I'll take Nat straight to the splash pad and let Harper and Byron eat ice cream until they explode.

Harper sounds like she handled it about like Sydney would've. Those cheeks! Looks like both of our #2's are eaters. :)
