I am such a happy girl; I got THIS close to a giraffe.
Amy went on her first pony ride (note: she would not ride the carousel, but had no hesitation about getting on a REAL horse).
Later, over dinner, we were chatting about our fabulous day at the zoo, and I mentioned that Amy's pony was very cute. She replied, "No Mommy, he wasn't cute. He was MAGNIFICENT!"
Definitely a great day.
