Monkeys, monkeys, monkeys...oh and tigers, lions and birds!

Today I took Mateo to a small close by zoo with our local playgroup. Now he is a little young (11 months) to grasp or enjoy the zoo, I think, but it was fun, none the less. I enjoyed seeing Mateo look so serious, because he was in amazement or confusion (who knows) over seeing all these different animals. We even feed the goats and I have never seen Mateo so straight faced, just staring at these goats. Another odd moment was the when the white tiger was pacing back and forth and then just stopped and looked Mateo straight in the eyes. This tiger was probably thinking Mateo looked like tender meat, but I gave it a disapproving mom look back and then quickly shuffled along.
The whole day was great, even if Mateo slept through the last hour or so but it will be another memory with my little boy I will cherish. Although after the zoo I started to think about how much I couldn't wait to experience everything with Mateo, as he gets older, from sporting events to amusement parks and many more zoo trips to come. But I also hate the thought of going to work and not doing as much as I could with him, especially as he gets older and able to do more, but I guess that's life (sad but this my reality for now, as I have to work).
All and all, I loved today, and I think I enjoyed getting to do things again that I haven't done since I was a child. I guess Mateo will keep me young at heart!
(I know this posting was a just a little warm fuzzy moment, but I think everyone enjoys reading those from time to time)
