Confession: I have spent the majority of my spring break cleaning the apartment and trying to prevent Raven from pulling all our DVDs off the shelf about every other minute. However, before I went into full-on spring cleaning mode, I made sure we did a little adventure-ing last weekend (while I still had plenty of energy!).
The last time Matt and I went to Baby Animal Days, we were perhaps the only childless couple there, but that didn’t deter us from cooing over the baby chicks, discussing the cuteness of the baby goats, or bemoaning the hour-plus wait to see the baby bears. So it should come as no surprise that once we actually had a child of our own in the mix, we would be heading back.
She obviously bonded immediately with the whole experience, enthusiastically squealing over the delights of the smallness and fluffiness of each of the species, making sure to give extra sweet pats to each one of the little heads:
But we don’t really go on these adventures because we think she’ll “get” them or go out of her mind with excitement over them–we’re more doing these adventures because we’re trying to get into the habit of going out and trying new things as a family, especially since that’s something I want to prioritize as we have older kids who really will “get” it.
And no time like the present to begin, eh?
Besides, we got some pretty adorable family pics out of the whole thing–
