Our latest visit to te zoo

We have an annual membership to the zoo so we go there quite often. Emilia must be growing bored of just seeing the animals because this time we went there for a different reason.

When she was potty training we bought her the book Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi which teaches kids that all animals and humans must perfor certain bodily functions.

Emilia found it among her books and decided that she wanted to go to the zoo to see the animals' poop.

She would not let go of her idea or the book. Finally I conceaded. At the zoo she kept flipping through the pages to identify the animals and looking around for their 'left overs'.

I have to say, the zoo staff does a good job at keeping up with the animals because we never saw any.

We had a great time. The monkey exhibit was fun, as usual.

I just read your post on your cornea abrasion, and I have to tell you, I feel your pain!! Over Christmas I fell asleep in my contacts, like I have done many times before, and when I awoke in the morning and took them out, I took off the top layer of cornea, and boy oh boy, did that hurt, and it was scary because though only one was hurt, I couldn't open either eye! I was back to normal in four days, looks like yours was much worse, and I am so sorry! It is amazing how eyes grow back though (at least the cornea part). Your babies are beautiful by the way! And Emilia is too funny wanting to go find the "left-overs" :)
