We told Arizona that we would see some lions and tigers and she asked occasionally on our hour long drive, "I want to see a cat momma!" "I want to see the lion." When we arrived she kept bringing it up again and so we went straight to that area to find them. I wish I had captured her reaction to seeing the tiger. Her eyes were so wide and her mouth open in amazement. I think she was expecting a cute little kitten- but she got a large tiger instead. She stared in amazement. It was the cutest thing.
Whenever we left an area, she didn't forget to say bye to that specific animal. When we finished walking around the entire habitat- she said goodbye to the animals and told them to go to sleep. She was very exhausted by the end of the trip and asked to go to sleep once we started to drive back home. It's been a while since she has fallen asleep in the car- and not surprised, she was too distracted with the light peering in the windows and us sitting in the front seats that she refused to sleep a wink. We had an awesome time. Next week- the aquarium!!
Here's a Mothers Day shot I got from last week. I love being this little girls momma.
