Off to the Zoo....

Yesterday Michael took off half a day and we all went to the zoo in Memphis. We had such a good time. Myla was a little angel and loved seeing all of the animals. She would look and look for the animal in the exhibit and when she saw it, she would just squeal with delight! Of course, she wasn't entertained by any of them for long periods of time, but she did enjoy seeing them nonetheless. She got out of the stroller a good bit and walked with us, which went really well. It is amazing how independent she is getting! We watched the sealions show (for a little while), and we also rode the merry-go-round. I think all in all the day could not have gone much better. We bought a membership for the year, so I am sure we will enjoy more visits as the year goes by. I hope you enjoy all the pictures!
All dressed up and ready to go!
Resting up on the way there....
Myla and Daddy looking at the cheetahs in Cat Country...
This was right before we went in the Bird House. She was squealing at a few of the birds in the cage right before you walk in...too cute!
Petting the donkeys. The "farm" part of the zoo was her favorite, I think. She could pet most of the animals and see them on her level through the fence. She also loved the ducks that were around the water.
Pointing to the chickens...
Calling the ducks, or more like it, squealings "DUCKS" at the top of her lungs...
I think she was looking at the goats here, but I just loved the picture of her looking through the fence.
Myla and Daddy leaving the farm area.
Myla and the kimodo (sp.?) dragon...see it in the background? Yes, I also was really glad that there was a glass wall between us.
Getting sleepy watching the sealions perform...
Riding the Merry-Go-Round with Mommy. She didn't like the ones that went up and down. I tried to move her thinking it would be more fun, but she was having nothing to do with it. She loved holding on to the pole.
Daddy trying to get our picture...
Watching the monkey swinging on the ropes...
First time at the zoo coming to a close....
Kisses from Daddy!
When we were leaving, I asked Myla if she had fun at the zoo. Here she is saying, "Hesssss!!!" (Yes)
We stopped at Chick-Fil-A on the way home for Myla to enjoy some nuggets and fries. Here she is digging in!
She just looks so big to me drinking out of a juice box! Just two months ago she couldn't really do it without spilling it out everywhere!
Getting in some playtime before the ride home.
After we got home, Myla was running down the driveway and fell. She skinned up both knees....bless her heart. She has taken many falls, but this was the worst injury! She kept rubbing them and crying. I felt so sorry for her! (Only a really mean, blogger mommy would take a picture of her child in pain!)

Poor little knees...
Little stinker trying to figure out what happened to her legs!
