A Day at the Zoo

Took advantage of our long weekend and spent a day at Franklin Park and Zoo, here in Dorchester.

The lion kept roaring. Which had the opposite of his desired effect I am sure, as everyone gathered to watch.

A new baby gorilla! Mom and baby were positioned by the window, and the little baby was pressing his mouth against the glass. Of course there was a swarm of kids at the glass as well, making it difficult for me to get a good view. Amira wiggled her way in though.

This duck is on the wrong side of the net!

And Amira learned a new word "Peacock." She picked it up fast, amazed by these beautiful birds wandering around.
The zoo felt pretty big to all of us, and we were all pretty tired at the end of the visit. Amira took her only real nap of the weekend after this visit. She has been having some trouble sleeping lately, not just at nap time but going to bed too. Which leaves mom and dad a little too tired to run around and tire her out during the day. Hopefully this is just a phase. We really enjoy our sleep around here!
