A 1 year old's visit to the zoo...

To celebrate Elleanor's official birthday, Colby and I took the day off and headed into Seattle.  We wanted to go to the zoo!



We were all very excited to see how much the animals and Elle had changed since our last visit!



First stop was the bird dome.  We purchased two seed sticks and went to work attracting our fine feathered friends.



I am pretty sure we had the pet store ringer on our stick!  Luck has it Elle was not too impressed and we did not leave with a brochure on how to purchase a parakeet.



Colby's landed a big bird that flew right onto Elle's head.  Again she wasn't impressed.


Next we decided to try out the carousel.  I tried my darndest to get her to sit on one of the horses but as soon as they started moving she wanted nothing to do with it.  Which worked out fine, as we rode around in the sleigh which I believe was being pulled by all the horses.


Once the ride came to a stop, Elle was okay sitting on one of the beautiful horses.


For the birds...


Hanging around at the zoo...


Otter be movin' along...


I just loved how this group of Daddys were all showing their baby girls the orangutans.  It was just so stinking cute!  I guess I missed the memo that it was Daddy's day at the zoo.

We then headed down to Fremont to pick up our very favorite dessert.

What a great day to go to the zoo! The bird that Colby is sharing with looks a lot like Billie Boy that flew away from Tom way back when - glad to see he's got a great home.
