Zoo with Grandma and Grandpa

Today I spent the day with Grandma Jo and Grandpa Howie. Mommy and Daddy worked on getting part of my new room remodeled so when the baby comes they can have my old room. They got the walls painted (BRIGHT green, yellow, red and blue… one each!) and my new ( http://www.flexa.dk ) bed put together. It ROCKS! I will tell you more about it later as it is not officially my room for another few weeks until it is all put together. I did have fun climbing on it though tonight when I got home.

Anyway… the ZOO! Grandma and Grandpa picked me up around 9am (after breakfast and cartoons) and took me to Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. It was a very hot day today and we all must have lost 5lbs in sweat. The let me feed the giraffe, which I was a bit apprehensive about.

I took Grandpa Howie on a camel ride.

We had a blast! I love riding the camels.
We rode the merry-go-round but I refused to sit on any of the animals, I just wanted to ride on the bench/chair thingy. Oh well. I really had fun… just no animal riding today!

I got rhinos and hippos confused. At least that is what I am letting everyone think. Really I was just playing the same game I played with Mommy and Daddy all week… I kept calling a giraffe a zebra. I finally stopped after my parents were sufficiently insane! This week maybe rhino and hippo will be the new game.

Ready for more fun! 🙂

After a hot day in “Africa”, I mean the zoo, we went back to Grandma/Grandpa’s house for a nap. I stayed awake the entire ride home by pretending to tickle Grandpa Howie with a paintbrush. He needed some color? I then took a 1.5 hour nap and had a snack and played a few games with my Grandparents.

Grandpa was shocked when I told him to “Leave me Alone!” My new thing is I tell people to “Leave me alone!!” then I go find a quiet corner and do my business. At least I know when I have to go. Mommy told me if I put poo-poo in the potty this week I can have a new Diego Racetrack I have been eyeing! 🙂 I remind her daily that I want it but haven’t quite surrendered to the idea of poo-poo in the potty right yet. I like to remind Mommy and Daddy of all the “special treats” they promise me. My memory is SUPER sharp now so don’t try to pull a fast one on me! 🙂

After a fun play we all went to Macaroni Grill. GiGi came with us too. Mommy and Daddy were still hard at work at home. I ate like a champ, considering I didn’t eat much all day, no surprise there! After dinner I got to go home and jump on my new bad! I was really happy to see Mommy & Daddy.

I absolutely loved my day with my Grandparents. Thank you both so much for such a lovely outing and fun play day. Mommy & Daddy got so much done!
