Our terrible, horrible, no good, very bad trip to the zoo

These pictures give you a good idea of how much fun our trip to the zoo was today. Be glad you can't hear the soundtrack that accompanied them!

I thought, how fun! We'll go to the zoo today! It's not too cold, the sun is shining & Jack will get to see some animals. I really wanted to see the elephants, big cats & bears.

Here is a summary of our trip:
Minutes Jack was happy in his new stroller- 5
Minutes Jack would have been happy in his old stroller- about 5 seconds...at least we're making some progress
Things Jack enjoyed- sitting in a tunnel eating a granola bar (as pictured below), digging in the dirt along the path, climbing into the zoo keeper's golf carts

Things Jack didn't enjoy- riding in the stroller, walking, being carried, being taken out of the zoo keeper's golf carts
Favorite activity of the afternoon- going in and out of the automatic door approximately 50 times (we need to get one of these in our new house just to keep him entertained!)
Domestic animals viewed- 2 the guinea pigs & bunny rabbits
Real zoo animals viewed- zero
Places Jack cried- in the stroller, in the car seat, in my arms
Places mommy cried- in the car

That being said, we are going to say the culprits of this zoo trip & sour mood are teeth, not my sweet boy. It doesn't help that I think he was a bit tired...

At least the zoo was free. Oh, and I love that book that the title refers to. It was one of my favorites as a kid, because I sometimes had terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days, and it was nice to know that someone could relate.

Andi said...

yes. i thought about calling him alexander all day long, just to make the title complete!

At least he had that cool jacket on. I hope you had that jacket I plan to steal on, so you looked cool while your kid melted down.

Too bad they havent taught the zoo animals to juggle, yet.

Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.
