Today, Liam had his first visit to the zoo!
For his first birthday, Omi and Abi gave him a year membership to Grassmere. Or rather, a membership for the rest of us since, though he has free admission, he can’t drive himself there. Let’s be real, though. He’s never going to drive. I had a talk with him, and he agreed that one year old is as big as he’s gonna get.
Sadly, there was rain on his first trip, but that’s the beauty of a membership! It’s not a wasted trip 🙂
Liam made a friend who took a real interest in him. And by that, I mean she took a real interest in petting his head over and over.
He had difficulty noticing anything that wasn’t moving a lot. So, he loved the bats!
Oh, and there was this really creepy alligator just sitting there smiling at me. Creepy with a capital CREEP. Not a good picture, but if you can see him, you know what I’m talking about.
Thankfully, the rain stopped in time for us to make a little trip to the petting zoo. Liam preferred to watch.
Thanks to Omi and Abi for a fun birthday present that will last all year!
