A Trip to the Zoo

Caty, Hanna, my mom (Nana) and myself spent a day at the San Francisco Zoo.  They were having a special demonstration put on by Fisher Price and children were able to try out their new line of toys.  We got in line so Caty could try out one of their motorized vehicles.  She wasn’t able to fit in any of the cars, however the Harley Davidson Rocker was just her size – no pedal extenders needed!  I wonder if it comes in pink?

She still loves Dora
I think that these belonged with Handy Manny

Trying out the Smart Fit Park
Playing Dr Murphy

From here we headed out to see some animals.  First up were the giraffes and let me tell you, the baby giraffe was just about the cutest thing, aside from my two girls!

The koalas are adorable
This chimpanzee went crazy – swinging from here to there, on this and that
and then did this…climbed up a pole, stood there, and then just sat down staring over the trees

What a fun day! I've often wondered who the kids were that got to test out the new stuff!

Hehe - how does that Chimp manage to sit on the tip of that tree. The giraffe is soooo cute. And good to see and Aussie animal got a look in!

As for the toys, it looks like Caty in particular had a ball. That bike was just perfect for her.

How cool that she got to try out all the Fisher Price toys! What a cool thing-you can start thinking about Christmas early! it appears both your beautiful girls had a great day at the zoo. The picture of Caty posing with the elephant is my favorite. I will be in Nashville next year. I wonder who talks more Caty or Preston?

Hanna and Caty are both adorable! I can't believe how much Hanna has grown already since your last post with pictures of her!
The baby giraffe is really cute!
