i have never seen my son so mesmerized by animals as he was this past saturday. brian and i decided to take owen to the zoo and it really was so much fun watching him experience and enjoy all the different types of animals. i took him with beth a long time ago when he was just little, when we were just looking for something to do. this time was so much better because he could really enjoy it. it took him a while to get out of the "in awe" face and he constantly had his hands in his mouth.... so the petting zoo wasnt really my favorite. he was a tired little boy afterwards and we were not 2min away before he konked out.
