Just wanted to share a few glimpses of our morning outing today. Usually in October we'd be indulging in our Saturday ritual of coffee and bagels, but today with the sun shining bright, we ventured to the zoo.
This morning while talking about Cora's giant teddy bear (which she is afraid of, by the way), she signed "bear" for the first time.
So the bears were the first animals we visited. She started out a little wary.
Then she started to get excited!
Then she showed off her new vocabulary by signing about it. "Bear!"
She was so excited about the bears she even signed "bear" while watching the otters.
The sea lions were pretty amazing, as always. The fish and the turtles too.
She was happy getting to pet the goats. And she surprised us by "mooing" at the cows.
A glimpse of the regal she-lion, just for fun.
A great day for fun at the zoo!
