The Zoo

For Labor Day weekend we decided that it would be fun to take a family vacation just the four of us.  Where do you go on a family vacation with a 2 1/2 year old and a 6 month old?  THE ZOO!!!!
We drove over to Seattle and stayed Friday night at a nice hotel and enjoyed the pool in the morning.  Brendan had fun swimming, jumping, listening to sounds under the water, and floating.  We spent the afternoon by the waterfront in Kirkland (there was a treehouse play area that was especially a hit!)  Saturday night we had a friend who so graciously let us stay at her place while she was on vacation (THANK YOU KAREN....WHAT A HUGE BLESSING TO US).  Sunday morning we got up and headed for the Zoo.  Brendan took it all in.  He didn't want anything to do with the stroller or holding our hands, he wanted to run from animal to animal.  When we asked what his favorite animal was we get different answers each time, but some of the highlights was the giraffe, elephant, kangaroo, and birds.  Brendan was able to feed the birds, they flew right up onto the stick he was holding.  Brendan loved this.  It was so fun to hear and see Brendan after the zoo imitating all the animals.  It made us excited for many more car trips to come.
