Our trip to the Columbus Zoo

I may be sicker then a dog right now, but last week I promised Cameron that I would take him to the zoo. Shawn arranged to have the day off and it was in the mid 50's so it was pretty warm and we decided to take advantage of our zoo membership that my parents bought for us. So, after my doctor's appointment this morning we packed things up and off we went to the zoo. I bought Cameron this elephant shirt just for his trip to the zoo. He LOVES elephants and was thrilled to see so many of them today.
Here is Cameron and Shawn riding the carousel at the zoo. He loved it and you may not be able to tell in this picture, but he just got done blowing me a kiss. Every time he would see me, he would blow me a kiss. It was simply precious!!
Getting ready to start. He was quite anxious to get started and loved it as soon as they started going. To say the least....he didn't want to get off.
Isn't this the cutest baby monkey you have every seen? I just fell in love with his face. Gotta love all sorts of babies!!
I thought this was hilarious!! I saw this monkey just sitting there. He/She was all sprawled out and picking his nose. What a funny picture!!
This gorilla was getting ready for a nap, but he took time to give Cameron the stare down. It was cute to watch the two of them interact. Cameron loved him. He got down in his face at one point and said "Night Night". Cameron just had so much fun!!
Yep, one of Cameron's FAVORITE stops was the elephants. He LOVES LOVES LOVES elephants and was thrilled to see all of them. Of course he would have been content sitting around watching them all day long.
Here is a picture of Cameron and Mommy and baby elephant. Doesn't Cameron look too cute in his hat? It was still a bit breezy and cool so we thought it was still necessary for a hat especially since he just got over a cold about 2-3 weeks ago.
The only thing separating Cameron and this tiger was the glass. It was definitely an up front and close encounter. Once again Cameron just stood there looking at the BIG kitty!!
Here is the profile of Cameron watching the tiger. Isn't he close?!? He loved it, but it still made me a bit nervous. Gotta love how a Momma worries about her little one.
Well, that was our day at the Columbus Zoo. We will definitely be taking many more trips, but hopefully it will be a bit warmer next time. I did see some daffodils so at least we know that the warm weather is right around the corner - YAY!! Hope you enjoyed going to the Zoo with us : )

What a fun time, going as a family to the zoo! I bet the fresh air was good for you, too!

What did the dr. say, may I ask?

I can't believe that picture of the monkey picking his nose! Did Cameron tell him that isn't polite?

Dr. told me that I have a bad sinus infection along with bronchial irritation. He prescribed Z-pak and a nasal spray.

We love going to the zoo. Looks like he had a great time:)

Praying you get better soon. Z-pak always gets rid of it for me, you should be on the mend soon.

I loved all the Zoo pictures, too cute.

What a trooper you are. Putting your needs aside to make sure your child.family is having a good time is a true mommies job. I can't wait to be in the club. I truly hope you feel better soon. Looks like Cameron will be having great dreams tonight with wild things of all sorts.

You are such a great mommy! What a nice zoo too! Ours isn't like that. The animals are so close! I may have to drive down there some time and join you since I am not too far away! And of course, your little man is adorable!
