Choo Choo Trains and Carousels

Today we were able to do what we've been waiting to do all summer...ride the choo choo train and the carousel at the zoo. We've been to the zoo this summer almost as many times as we have fingers, and every time we go we ask Mom to ride the train and carousel. She always says the same thing too..."you can only ride them if both Mommy and Daddy are with you". Daddy hasn't stepped foot inside the Milwaukee Zoo EVER so we were doubting it was going to happen anytime soon. We don't like to admit it when we are wrong, but today Daddy proved us wrong and we can't tell you how happy that makes us feel! We of course took in all of the sites, with the aquatic and reptile center being a big hit again; but the biggest hit came after 3 hours of anxiously and patiently waiting. Daddy said the magic words... "Let's get in line for the carousel". Lily almost blew our shot when she tripped on our way to the ticket counter. She scuffed up her knee and was pretty upset so we had to wait and watch everyone take a turn without us. She finally settled down though and our turn arrived, which worked out in the end because we both got our first choice...a crazy cat and a flowered horse. Next we were on to the choo choo train which was just relaxing and fun. We've decided that we'll never get enough of the zoo here in our world!
