A trip to the zoo!!

Today our friends Erin and Ian took the Bean and I on a trip to the zoo! (This was their b'day gift to the Bean, and we are just now scheduling it.) Erin and Ian (and Doug, Erin's husband) are our neighbors, and we hang out w/ them all the time. Ian is the Bean's best friend. As a side note, Erin is also expecting their second child in July, another little boy! So very soon, the Bean will be outnumbered by all the boys! This was the Bean's first trip to the zoo, and she loved it! We saw sea lions, giraffes, lots of birds, monkeys, ostrichs, and much more. And we went to the petting zoo where she got to pet some sheep and goats. We also took a ride on the carousel, and the Bean liked that the best of all, I think. She laughed and grinned the whole time, then cried when we got off b/c she wanted to ride again. Thanks Erin and Ian for a fun time!

Here we are posing in front of the sea lions.

Petting the goats.

The Bean and Ian trying to pet the tiny goats. The goats were way more interesting than the camera, so there was no getting them to look my way. :)

Is it a lion, or the Bean?

The Bean lovin' the carousel! She loved the "mu-mu" (music).

i love how she's got her head back in the goat picture. it's like she saying, "i might touch you, but I don't want to smell you." too cute!
