Roxanne is 16 months old today! We took her to the zoo early this morning to try and see the "boundless budgies" exhibit before it started raining. It was perfect! There was hardly anyone there, and the woman working there told us that the birds had just woken up and were hungry. We bought two "seed sticks" to hold out and let the birds eat off of them. Roxanne kept wanting to hold one, but as soon as a bird landed on it, she would drop it and get a little freaked out. So we just held them for her and let her watch, which seemed to be just as good for her. She was pretty mesmerized. After we finished with the birds, we scooted to some of the other animals, and it was wonderful! The zoo was almost empty, and the animals were all very active. We got close up views of two of the elephants, the lion cubs (these guys are HUGE now), the otters, the pandas, and we spent about fifteen minutes watching three baby gorillas clown around. They were only about 10 feet away. Even the panda room was pretty empty. It was really nice, even though we got slightly sprinkled on.
Yesterday, we enjoyed the lovely weather. We looked at a couple of foreclosures in the morning, and then we went to the Sweetwater 420 Festival at Candler Park with Ariel and Luke, and Roxanne had her first Sponge Bob Square Pants popsicle. Messy, but apparently delicious. She still has a runny nose and has been a little fussy, but it doesn't seem to be getting worse at least...
