First trip to the zoo!

Watching the polar bears with Daddy.

Very excited just to see some ducks in a pond with a big fountain.
Reed loved seeing the gorillas. We got to see a huge silver back!
This was Emery Claire's brief awake time, she slept most of the time we were there--of course!
Such a big boy riding the carousel with Daddy.
This week was one of many eventful happenings in the Willis household. The most fun to mention is our first trip to the zoo! Reed, being almost 21 months old, and Emery Claire, just turning 1 month yesterday, both got to experience the Cincinnati zoo on Thursday. It has been mostly in the mid-upper 70s here, so we thought we'd take advantage of the cooler and less humid weather and venture to the zoo. Reed was awe struck basically the whole time. We spent about 3 hours there, and he did great! He seemed to keep big wide eyes and basically few words as he looked on in awe at every animal we saw. Casey took him on the carousel, and I took him on the train. He was so cute just soaking in every minute of all he saw!

  1. looks like you had a fun day at the zoo; reed looks a little amazed and perplexed with all the 'bigness' of the animals (not like the size in his books)...congrats on your 1st zoo trip as a family; I'm sure EC will want to go back! Love you, mom
