Express from South Africa: a carved giraffe, lioness, African red bush tea, and a South African book about an elephant who saves the day in Kachoo! Thanks, Mom!! Isaac was so delighted with the book, he insisted on bringing it to the zoo with us.
The weather was absolutely perfect. Completely ideal. I called to make sure the ZOO TRAIN was operating. It was! So we zipped over after Eloise’s nap and bee-lined for the station. I was parking the stroller when Isaac’s face lit up with delight.
“TESSA!” A cute little blond with a curly ponytail and glamorous sunglasses skipped up and hugged him. Isaac asked her to join him in the last car of the train. Zoo date! Adorable. They even held hands as they headed to the tiger exhibit afterwards.
A lot of animals were out enjoying the sunny, warm day. A tiger prowled, the lion shook his mane, a giraffe SAT in the sun, the rhino paced the watering hole. Isaac and I got ice cream and raced through Africa. Then Eloise got tired and grouchy so we headed home for (short) naps!
