Ian’s parents are in town from Virginia and we had to take them to our favorite wildlife park. We invited my parents for a good ol’ family day and had a blast. Last time Ian and I were here it snowed…you can see the pictures from that trip here & here. When we arrived the tiger splash was about to start so we quickly took a train to catch the show. These people are serious entertainers and so funny, a definite must do if you go to the park. Everyone is so friendly at this park and you can tell they really love their job and what they do. I love this park too because you can tell the animals are really cared for and happy. Its also nice because you can actually see the animals and get a lot closer to them than you would at a regular zoo.
Mom life…posing with my stroller. I really really love this dress from Blossom And Glow. I have mentioned this before (probably multiple times) but Kennedy is an eater. I fed her right before we got to the park, had a 5oz bottle 30 minutes later, then wanted to be fed again right after. This dress is the best for nursing, easy buttons for easy access which is so convenient when you have a constant eater like me.
Kennedy started crying here and really just wanted to be held. We didn’t want her to get a sunburn or be in the direct sunlight for too long which explains my look….😝 Gotta do what ya gotta do!Also experienced our first ever bathroom diaper change…I’m not the only one who makes crazy faces to stop baby from crying am I?
Kenny was still pretty fussy and it was her feeding time (again!) so Ian and I decided not to do the wildlife tour. We have already done it multiple times and wanted them to experience it because its so awesome. Here they are loading up on the bus…
Felt like we were waving them off on their first day of school….SO CUTE! They give each person a stick of celery or a little nugget to feed the giraffe. Its so much fun and makes for some great pictures. If you’re really adventurous you can feed him with your mouth.
Hope everyone is having an awesome Monday. We experienced our first ever earthquake last night which was pretty cool, minus our power shutting down because of it. Try feeding/changing a diaper by candlelight…not fun! Luckily it is back up and running today and it wasn’t anything major. Taught us a lesson too to be prepared and stock up on some flashlights. Also, (for you mamas) have a manual breast pump or battery pack charged for pumping because I didn’t and it was awful. Thankfully the power was only down for 4 hours but it could of been bad. 😱
