Fabulous Firsties at the Zoo

I was lucky enough to get to take a day off work to accompany Jackson's class on their field trip to the zoo! 

Thankfully he was much happier about me being there in general than he was about taking this picture! Stinker!

Here's one to check off the ol' bucket list: navigating a zoo with 18 6-7 year olds! It was about as relaxing as you might imagine!

He found a stick. Because of course he did.

The jaguar is always a favorite!


Jackson sitting next to a glass enclosure with a sleeping jaguar on the other side. The jaguar has one of his paws pressed against the glass and Jackson has his hand pressed against the glass over the jaguar's paw, as if comparing the size.
 
The firsties made a very quick trip through the zoo and then the class made their way back to the bus to make it back to school on time. Jackson wanted to go back to see a few animals again that we had rushed through the first time, so since I drove my own car, we stayed and basically walked the zoo twice.

What a fun day with my fabulous firstie!
