Best Zoo Trip EVVEERR-- aka Geoffrey Visits the Zoo

Danger Boy's preschool class went to the St Louis Zoo this year again, and we had a ball. We only had 2 1/2 hours, so we had to narrow down which animals DB definitely wanted to see. He said Giraffes (duh!), rhinos, hippos, and hyenas (though the last animal kept changing since we saw lots of animals on the way).

Geoffrey had a great time with DB (according to DB, since Tired Mom does not speak giraffe). Geoffrey got a little tired on the bus, but then he got over it once we got to the zoo!

Geoffrey found lots of other giraffes to keep his attention, including a very colorful giraffe we saw right away at the Painted Giraffe Cafe.

We went straight for the real giraffes after that and Geoffrey got to make funny noises with his own kind.
Geoffrey seemed to prefer seeing the other animals and just having fun with his boy at the zoo. Perfect weather and great alone time with Danger Boy and Tired Mom Paranoid Dad would have liked to have come, but could not get off work :(

Field trips are just another thing that stay at home moms get to do that the dads sometimes miss out on! Yay for SAHMness!
