Keryn and I are now zoo crew members with Alayna getting to visit for free until she gets to her 3rd birthday. On a cool and showery Sunday we visited the zoo and checked out (and were checked out by) the occupants. With every visit Alayna is getting more and more engaged and this time she had a good time watching the chimpanzees getting some lunch and the very active cheetah. The otter brothers were also a favourite, diving underwater while Alayna watched from the glass view port. The longest and most enthusiast speech I’ve heard from Alayna took place later that day at home when I asked her about the zoo and she told me about the chimpanzees cuddling and eating their apples and (other stuff I didn’t quite understand but it was really exciting!) 🙂 .
