Lions and Tigers and Bears

Way back at the end of May, I decided I wanted to do something with both kids by myself before I went back to work. I decided to go to the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco. I had heard great things about it - good size {not too big but lots of great animals}, semi-close, fun for Trent. I wanted to do something fun and bold for me, and this seemed like the perfect challenge. We had no time table, so if Drew needed to nurse, we'd nurse. If either kid got upset, we'd leave. And it was a fantastic day!

Right when we walked in, there was a little play area. Trent LOVED it. Drew and I just sat on a bench watching him have a ball. I didn't care how long he wanted to play. I was still on cloud 9 that we made it in 1 piece!

Sister mostly hung out in my Ergo and even snoozed for a bit. I don't think she was impressed by the animals. {grin}

I made someone take our picture to document the success of the day. Do you see my cheesy ear-to-ear grin? Yeah, I was feeling pretty good about our day.

Trent was too funny. He asked about the lions ALL day. When we finally got to the lions, he looked at them for 30 seconds and was ready to move on.

Both kids were fantastic, and I was so proud of myself for tackling the adventure and not stressing. It was a great way to end my maternity leave.
