zoo and a party!
Today was my nephew's 2nd birthday party. Too much fun! In the morning we met up with a group and went to the zoo. This was Dexter's first trip to the zoo! He did pretty well. This was also his first time in his stroller without his infant seat. He seems to get hot in the infant seat, so we decided to give it a whirl in just the stroller. Okay, so I know my kid is huge. His dad is over 6ft. tall, and my kid is pretty tall, but I wasn't sure. It ended up being great because he had more room and could see better!
We walked through the zoo and caught up with the others. Despite a few little maintenence cries, as we call them, he was great the whole trip! We ended up skipping the kids petting zoo part and the reptile house because it looked like rain. Actually, we were going to skip it anyway because Dex was getting ready for eating time and it was easier to go to the car. Well, as we are all walking towards the elevator (strollers!) it started to POUR. I'm talking huge raindrops. We went down and rushed to a little enclosed area where the escalators are located and waited. Dex stayed dry. Mommy and Daddy? Yeah, we were soaked. When it finally stopped raining we loaded up and went back to my brother and sister in laws house for the rest of the party.
The party was so much fun! There were many kids and they had a great time! We ended up leaving right after cake only because Dexter was getting tired and needed to nap. My son is a very nebby child and there was just too much fun going on for him to sleep so we headed out. He slept most of the way home in the car and was passed out when we got home. We got the cutest video of him when it was time to wake up and eat again and a super great picture (as you see above) of him when he woke up. Unfortunately, my cell phone was closer than my camera so it isn't the best quality, but that's okay. He is now on the floor with his baby gym going NUTS. He's playing like he hasn't played in a year. Well it's been most of the day he was away from his toys, which in Dexter land probably feels like a yer.
All in all, it was a great day, wet hair and all!
