This boy had a great weekend. He got to do 3 activities for the first time:
Build A Bear with my parents on Friday afternoon
Where he got not one, but TWO animals. A rabbit and a horse. Poppa and Nonnie are whipped.
First carousel ride. Apparently he was holding on to my dad for dear life.
Please meet Habbit the rabbit and Boomer the horse
Who wouldn’t be this happy after that kind of an afternoon? (p.s. that is my brother’s creepy tanned hand. He works outside all day)
On Saturday, I took him to the zoo for the first time. (Lee was gone all weekend)
He was a little more interested in the squirrels then anything else. Go figure. He did like the monkeys (above). I thought he’d love the petting zoo, but I think maybe he was just confused? He did think he was funny when he poked this goat. Please view the sequence of the events, and enjoy the side eye the goat gave him in the last picture. lol
The carousel was his favorite part of the trip. We rode it 3 times, but he definitely wanted to ride it a lot more. He rode it with no fear this time. Poppa taught him well.
And of course, he loved the train :)
Oh, we also rode a camel (or tamel as Cooper says). That was fun. For him. Not me. Ick. I tried to not ride with him but it made me too nervous. He loved it though.
On Sunday, we went to the aquarium with Jenny, Jeff, and Maddox. I think he actually liked the aquarium more than the zoo. He is way into “fissies” right now.
He loved the “BIG crab”
Love this picture of the boys. Cooper later took a major face plant off of that ledge. Needless to say, we won’t be climbing up there again.
I’m pretty sure Jenny and I about died of cuteness that they did this. They ran around holding hands and it was the cutest thing ever. These are all blurry because they, literally, were running.
Checking out the shark
The otters were Cooper’s favorite! They were swimming like crazy and putting on quite the show.
We tried to make the most out of the weekend since Dada was gone, and I think we did a pretty good job!
