"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Central Florida Zoo

Every new stage Carson has entered into, I always seem to say, "This is my favorite!" I'm convinced now that every stage my kids are going to go through will be my favorite because it's so awesome to see them accomplish new things and enjoy life! We took Carson to the zoo right before he turned 1, and visited again this week. Looks like we may be needing to get the annual pass because he had such a blast! Here's his first close encounter with a very fun looking lizard. Not Mommy's cup of tea, but I was excited he was interested in petting it! Then it was off to the splash park for some water fun. His other friends that went with us were not interested at all. In fact, they moved on to the animal exhibits while Carson and I stayed to play!
He wasn't so sure about those fountains at first:
But he thought the dumping water buckets were hilarious!
He climbed on all of the little animals and just enjoyed all of the water fun!
Then it was off to see the leopard.
He got out of his stroller and I told him "leopard" - he said "dog!" :)
After visiting the elephants, monkeys, ostriches, and other animals, we rode the choo-choo train before leaving. He said "choo choo" over and over and over while we rode the train!
What a fun day we had! He said "Bye, bye, choo choo" all the way home from the zoo! We can't wait for our next visit.
