Zoo Time

Saturday, last minute, Cole and I decided to take Grace to the Franklin Park Zoo. It was HOT out, so we packed LOTS of water and food and just walked VERY slowly.
Some bird, a condor maybe??

Grace looking at the flamigos.
Not quite sure what to think of them.
Grace telling me "No"
Grace looking at the Emu.
Grace and the gorilla.
Grace eating a freeze pop as big as her. All 3 of us split it, and we still couldn't finish it.
A sleepy Lion.

The goat kept "talking" to Grace.
She wasn't to sure about it.
Grace looking at the peacock.
Grace's face once the peacock started making noises.

Overall we had a great day. I tried to be prepared and we stopped often to rest, eat, and drink lots of water, but at the end of the day, I was WIPED! Walking the zoo caused my sciatica pain to flair up. I literally couldn't move Saturday night, but after lots of rest, a heating pad, and a back massage from Cole, I'm finally able to move again. It's crazy, just how much energy these babies are taking from me.
