We met a fabulous and gigantic cow. Daisy was absolutely fascinated and I was too as a matter a fact!
I let Daisy walk ahead of me just to observe how small she looked by herself and yet somehow she also looked like such a big girl at the same time. Sigh. She is just growing and growing!
Daisy and Lila are great baby buddies. They have gotten to hang out and play together quite a bit since their birth. Lila is such a sweetie pie and lets Daisy take her toys and her things without complaint. lol Watch the video and you will see what I mean! hehe
Lila was brave enough to reach through the fence to touch the pig's nose. Daisy....not so much:)
There was an awesome musical corner that was just the right height for the girls. They had sticks that the girls could smack against the different objects to make noise. Both girls loved this spot!
This is what Daisy looks like when she is blowing kisses. She tends to smash her nose at the same time and then realizes she can't breath..it's quite comical!
There was a really fun sandbox full of really cool sand toys and dump trucks. Daisy was having a BLAST!
We saw this lady and her daughter hanging out by the cow and we chatted a little and turns out that the other little girl is also named Daisy. What are the chances! This is the first time we have encountered another Daisy in person so I thought this moment needed to be captured!
Below was the butterfly exhibit. It was a lush tropical oasis and a blessed retreat from the sweltering heat. Inside the air was nice and cool and it was so beautiful to see the butterflies floating around all over. Daisy wasn't interested in the butterflies so much as she enjoyed walking around and around (and around) the circle path and drinking her sippy cup. Every now and then a small tropical bird would walk out from under a bush in front of her on the trail and she would stop dead in her tracks, eyes wide and mouth gaping. Then she would point and say, "birduh, birduh." But she was quite petrified. I couldn't help but giggle!
Me and the two little angels
Daisy was not happy to be sitting for a picture. She wanted to keep wanting the loop.
The girls really enjoyed their snack break. I was kind of wishing that I had brought myself a snack and a cold water and I might have had a thought of borrowing my daughter's sippy cup...but, warm milk wasn't worth it. lol
Seriously though, this museum was such a blast and I can't wait to go again with Daisy when it cools down a bit. On another note: We are about to watch Shutter Island...I'm nervous. I don't like scary movies at all but, I had heard this was interesting. Yes, I'm a total wus and will probably have a nightmare tonight....maybe it will be worth it?? hehehe Oh and I am munching on some chewy Sweet Tarts and I am so hooked! These little morsels are delish! Night Night
