Kells has a very strong bond with one my football teammates. Her name is Jeana although she goes by Fish. To Kells, she is Sister. She always has been and probably always will be. I'm not sure where it came from but I'm okay with it. Sister took him to the zoo last month and they went and checked out Zoo Lights. I have yet to see it but Kells loved it. Kells loves the zoo anyway but when you add Sister and the lights he's in heaven. I text once to find out how he was doing and at that point he had eaten an elephant ear, cotton candy and had hot chocolate and apple juice.
I think he likes elephant ears
But let's start from the beginning. Going into the zoo is a bronze or brass or some metal sculpture goat with a baby goat on it's back. This is a classic photo op for any parents or sisters as it were.
Next comes the eagle's nest. There are beautiful bald eagles at the zoo and Kells found out their arms are a lot longer than his.
Of course there are climbing opportunities along the way that must be taken advantage of. I'm so glad Sister was there to keep him propped up.
Must not forget the bears. Lots and lots of bears. Kells is so little next to the bears.
Oh! A horse ride!
I love that he was mesmerized by this picture.
Who knew you could fly on top of hippopotami!
Another climbing opportunity
Finish off the trip with a train ride and you've got a 4 year old little boy who was asleep in the car in less than 5 minutes from leaving the parking lot. He had such a wonderful day!
