Nate loves animals, but since he's only fifteen months, we hadn't bothered to take him to the zoo yet. It was a gorgeous fall weekend here and we thought it would be a shame to wait until spring to take him. We had a great time despite the fact that he didn't nap beforehand and was exhausted. He was so exhausted that he passed out on me as we walked back to the car. He NEVER does that. Ever.
It was difficult to get good shots. He was a grump at times (see bottom right), but most of the time we just had our hands full with Mr. DOOOWN...who refused to sit in the stroller or be carried. Not easy to navigate the windy, heavily populated paths of the Bronx zoo while you force your toddler to at least hold Mommy or Daddy's hand while he toddles along.
