Rainy Day at the Zoo

Friday afternoon we headed out for a rainy day picnic at the zoo. It was Dashiell's first time in the stroller (you can tell he wasn't sure what to think of it at first, but then he seemed to like it as long as it kept moving at all times), so everyone wanted a turn pushing it. We headed to all of the warmer exhibits (African Rainforest, African Savannah, etc.) for little warm breaks from the rain and had a picnic under cover in the middle of the African exhibits. It was so fun to have about 10 people in the zoo and get it basically to ourselves! When we were heading out of the zoo we got to the sea lions just as the trainers were calling them out of the water, and we got the watch  sea lions perform (we were watching the lion named Gus) and do tricks as the trainers gave them a physical exam. Every good behavior got rewarded with a fishy treat. It was a lot of fun to watch!
