All week I had been thinking about where we could bring Scarlett for some fun this weekend.
Ty picked up the movie "We bought a Zoo" from Redbox and we watched it Sunday evening, after Scarlett went to sleep. Really good movie. I especially love movies that are based on true stories.
So I woke up on Memorial Day and said to Ty, "Let's bring Scarlett to the zoo."
Like a good hubby he googled a small zoo that wasn't far from us. We packed up our red, white, and blue wearing baby and headed out. She LOVED it! I thought maybe she would be too young to care. Not the case. My heart went pitter patter when she laughed at the goats who began butting each other. She giggled at the peacock who followed us through the zoo and she looked in amazement at the friendly duck who approached us.
She loved feeding the bears and couldn't quite figure out why on earth the monkeys kept dropping their cans on chains down from their loft. As we filled them with food and they pulled them back up, the monkeys chattered and Scarlett smiled.
All is right in the world when Scarlett smiles.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend.
