The week after Easter, we decided to take a family trip down to the zoo. It was so fun seeing Silas discover new animals and respond to them. He stared and stared at a snake that came right up to the window to look at him. Then, he started sticking his tongue out over and over again, mimicking the snake. He's been doing it ever since. The most intriguing thing to Silas was not the animals, though. He was enamored with the floating buckets that passed by overhead (the skyfari), so of course we had to ride one ourselves. After the zoo, we had a picnic lunch at Balboa Park and let Silas play on the playground while Nick and I traded off napping in the sun. I love these days with this kid!
