Hello there, Monday! I need a weekend to recover from the weekend.
We took a little trip down the 405 freeway to San Diego, where we hung out with family, went to the San Diego Zoo, and attended a wedding. Aaron loved the zoo. We walked around the park for almost five hours, and he was wide awake the entire time, all smiles and laughs. I’m not sure if he really noticed the animals, but he sure enjoyed the multitudes of people.
On Maui, where I grew up, there was a tiny zoo. I think the best exhibit it had was a lone giraffe that was housed in a small dirt area with practically no greenery. I now realize that zoo was sort of sad and depressing, but as a young child I really enjoyed it.
Taking Aaron to the zoo this weekend made me excited for all the new experiences he will have in the next few years, and excited to share in his wonderment and joy.
