Back From The Zoo!

This was the best picture we got of Asha at the zoo. It was so incredibly hot that day that none of us were smiling much. They even had cool mist areas that you could walk through and cool off. We went to the Minnesota Zoo and a good portion of it is indoors which was really nice but once you got outside it was packed and HOT!!
In this picture Asha is growling at the Sun Bear. She loves bears and she loves to growl at them. "AARRRRR" She sounds like a pirate when she growls it's funny.

We tried to take her to the dolphin show which I really thought she would like but as soon as the dolphins started splashing she was done. Daddy took her out about 5 minutes into the whole thing. I guess Sea World is out of the question, at least in the near future.

Asha did really like the hotel we stayed at. She always does so well when we sleep away from home. She loves to sleep in her pack n play and so it's a nice vacation for mom and dad as well. We put it in between the 2 beds so no one would hurt themselves trying to get to the bathroom at night and she would dive head first into it. She thought it was the best and funniest thing ever. She just kept throwing herself in and laughing.

In this pictures she is waiting ever so patient for daddy to get off of work. Daddy works away from home and one of the perks is that we get to stay with him out of town if we want. Since we showed up on a Thursday he still had to finish work.

In the background is her big brother Dakota. She loves him sooo much and he is such a good big brother. Someone at the dolphin show took one of her stuffed animals she HAS to bring with when we go places and he saw them so he walked up to them and told them that they had his sisters bear and asked for it back. They gave it to him and we were really impressed with him for that.

Asha impressed us alot at the hotel too. She has a little magna doodle that we take when we travel and daddy was drawing fish on it and showing her. She took it and started to draw and she drew a frog. It was a frog. She made the little dots for eyes and a line for the mouth and it really looked like a frog. She watches people very closely when they do things especially when we draw or write and she catches on very fast. Later she made a circle with 2 lines coming out of the top and 2 lines coming out of the bottom and she showed me and said "spider". It looked like a spider. She also did a pretty good job drawing fish after daddy did a few more.
This picture is our last day at the hotel and Dakota obviously is not happy about leaving daddy behind. We had lots of fun and it was nice to see daddy and get some time away from home to relax.

Cute pics! I was so impressed with your story about Dakota getting Asha's toy back for her!

As always, I just think she's the cutest thing!
