Have pink Hello Kitty sunglasses, have snack (raisins), will travel! :)
While we waited for our turn on the carousel, the "big kitty" (the one she's riding on above) was straight ahead, and that was the one she wanted to ride. We were not the first in line, so the adults in K's procession weren't sure how all this was going to play out if K didn't get her preferred animal. However, somehow the stars aligned, and here she is on the "big keeeee" (kitty).

Watching the tortoise or turtle. Marni's parents are reptile lovers and had a reptile sanctuary when she was growing up. I asked the difference between a tortoise and a turtle. One goes in water and one doesn't but now I can't remember which is which. :)
Watching the meerkats. I missed the pic that was so precious - a line of about 6 toddlers with this same pose against the glass, all different nationalities.
Despite the look on her face, she really did enjoy herself. The funny thing about this is that Mommy and Daddy call her "Bug". So, "Bug" is in a bug ride! :)
Nothing warms my heart more than watching my brother be a Daddy to his baby girl. I thought she looked so grown up here, holding Daddy's hand. I have also always loved the analogy of a little girl holding her Daddy's hand with regards to how I should always hold tight to my Savior's.
The idea of holding her hand in the shape of a cup was lost on her. But I loved how she laughed when the Shetland ponies, donkeys and goats "tickled" her fingers when they ate out of her little hands. :)
