The one tough part of the class was that it started at 1:30pm, Laney's nap time. Each week we tried out different napping schedules. First keeping her up and trying to get her to nap after I dropped Will off (didn't work, she feel asleep in the car and took a very short nap). Then I tried having her nap before the class (worked once but usually it was tough to get her to go to sleep that early). So one day when Laney took a good nap before dropping Will off, I decided to stay at the zoo with Laney until it was time to meet Eliana at home when she got off the bus. Laney and I had a special mommy/daughter time visiting some monkeys, bears, elephants, and birds. The funniest thing was when she would imitate the animals she was looking at. When the water monitor (big snake like lizard) would stick its tongue out, so would Laney. When the duck would try to clean its feathers under its wing, Laney licked her arm. When the tiger was sleeping, Laney laid her head down on her arm. It was so cute!

|She loved watching the sloth bear and did not want to leave this enclosure.|
|Laney loves birds so she really enjoyed when we walked through the aviary. She walked up and down the path several times, but kept coming back to see these ducks.|
|Laney also thought the little birds like this cardinal flying around the zoo were an especially great part of our zoo trip. She chased them all over the sidewalk.|
