Baby's first zoo day!

We have been wanting to take Emilia to the zoo for a long time. Joe's mom is in town so we decided that this was the weekend to go! We picked up my mom (she has a broken shoulder!) and headed to the zoo around 4. We stopped at the gift shop first and Emilia got super spoiled- books and a magnet from one grandma, a picture frame from the other grandma, and a fleece and a toy from mom and dad. I found a basket of baby toys- stuffed animals with rattles in them- and picked up a few for Emilia to choose from. We were not surprised when she chose the monkey. This girl LOVES monkeys!

After shopping, we saw some animals. Emilia hated the elephants. They made her cry. 

Not that you can tell from this picture. She was all smiles as long as she couldn't see the elephants. (Notice her zebra sock falling off her foot)

She wasn't too crazy about the polar bear either. Her favorite animals were the rhinos (why were they so much better than the elephants?) and the snow leopard. She didn't see this guy, but I had to snap a pic of that mouth:

We also made sure to ride the carousel

There was a bit of a meltdown at the end of the visit when Emilia got overstimulated and overheated, but I think it was a great first zoo day and I think everyone had a good time!
