New Trick and the Zoo

First, Mary's new trick...



We caught her doing this on Saturday and now she can't stop doing it. Gotta love that she smiles while doing it.

Okay, now for the Zoo. If you need a free workout (well not including parking and snacks) park at the bottom of the Zoo and then walk up to Connecticut Ave in 90+ heat pushing a stroller. I guarantee you will burn  A LOT of calories.

We did get to the Zoo before 10am so it was cooler, you know 85. Besides the heat it was a great day at the Zoo. Of course Henry asked 100 times to see a giraffe......umm how do you tell a 3.5 there is no giraffe at the Zoo. Hey, we have pandas but not your common run of the mill giraffe. We do have them it has just been like 3 years since we have seen them. The exhibit where they are housed has been closed and is not opening for another year. He was happy with this lions, tigers and elephants, but really wanted to see the giraffe.

Here are the pictures from the day...















This last picture of Mary with her fan has had a lot of people in wonder. No the fan is not part of the stroller, it's just a battery operated fan from WalMart. People at the Zoo were in awe of this idea. When we went to the pool a few weeks ago, Aunt Deanie had a clip on one for Alexa and we thought it was a great idea. We used it 4th of July weekend and then again today. While she is awake it's a little trickier because she likes to kick it, but when she is asleep it is perfect for keeping her cool. Thanks, Deanie for the idea.....people from Florida have all the tricks for the heat ;) The Nardiello Family: New Trick and the Zoo
