A couple of weeks ago, I took Maxton to a small local zoo. It’s perfect for little kids, open fields to run around, and small animals.
I’m not sure if I have mentioned this before, but he is mildly afraid of sheep and goats. As soon as they start “baaa-ing” he clings to my legs and says “no” or “bye-bye sheep”. Poor guy. They can be really loud, especially if you’re less than a foot away from them. He also isn’t a fan of peacock’s – rightfully so, those birds are LOUD when they squawk.
My friend, and her son and daughter joined us as well.
He liked feeding the animals popcorn from his little bucket. Too cute.
On Wednesday, I took him to another local zoo that is a little bigger with more exotic animals – tigers, puma’s, kangaroo’s, etc. It is still a smaller zoo, but again, it’s perfect for his age group. We met up with Maxton’s little friend Wynn and his Mama and baby brother.
When we first got there, Maxton insisted on staying in the stroller, so he did.
About half way through he decided he was missing out, and wanted to get out and roam free to check out the “anima’s” (animals).
He had a great time and Mama got a wicked sunburn!
