If you are wondering if she always walks with such pride and vigor, the answer is yes.  And it makes me giggle every single time.

Poconos Vacation – the Zoo

Our family took a little vacation to the Poconos in August to relax and enjoy some time together before the new school year and what becomes the busiest time at our work.

Unfortunately, the week we decided to go to the Poconos happened to be one of the coldest and gloomiest weeks there.  We didn’t fret and I have to tell you, we found some awesome places to hang out!  If you are ever caught in the rain in the Poconos, first and foremost, check out this indoor water park (Split Rock).  That’s right.  A water park that is completely inside.  Slides and wave pool and all.  Not only did the girls have the best time, but the adults did too.

We also went to Chuck-E-Cheese for the first time with the kids (LOVED it) and even found a cute little Zoo that had a ton of animals that the first could pet and feed.

While Peanut loves running around the zoo and petting animals, Tay is absolutely obsessed.  She gets so giddy to spot every animal.  It’s adorable to watch.

An absolutely must on pretty much any outing over an hour is snacks.  I’ve learned that if we have a snack approximately every hour, the girls are happy as can be.  I have no idea if every single kid is like this or just mine, but Hangry is a real thing.  I get it.  And the girls do too.

All in all, a pretty exciting trip.  And we continue to learn that although Peanut is very shy around people, she is not at all shy around animals.  The kid has no fear and will run up to every animal, big or small, and pet them.  Gotta love her.
