Brayden's 1st Trip to the Zoo!

Today we took Brayden to the zoo and had an absolute blast! It was one of the rare weekend days that Tyler was off so we wanted to do something fun as a family. He got off this morning so we let him rest for a little while and then headed to the zoo about lunch time. We were a little concerned about Brayden wanting to walk instead of ride, but he was perfectly content sitting on his daddy's shoulders and never once tried to get down.

We got there just in time for the last sea lion show of the day so we headed there first. The plan was to stand close to the exit in case he got restless and started fussing, but they now require everyone to be seated so we headed to the nose bleed section. He was so enamored with the sea lions jumping out of the water, he never tried to get down. Then, we started walking around and looking at the animals. First Brayden would tell his daddy what he saw:

Then he would make sure I saw it:
Then he would wave at the animal and tell it "Hey!":

He also got to ride the train. The only problem we had on the train was him trying to touch the 3 year old child in front of him and calling him "baby". He also made his car sounds the entire time.

Lastly, we went to the Alabama Barn which is a petting zoo for all the Alabama animals. He got to pet a goat!
It was such a fun day! I knew he would be pretty good, because he's usually very happy and content as long as he's outside. Even though it was really hot, it was so fun and entertaining to spend the day watching our sweet boy be so happy!
