Petting Zoo

This week Sophie and I went on her first field trip! We have been going to a morning Play Group twice a week. Sophie loves Play Group - and so do I! It's sponsored by Army Community Services, and they have a huge building with all sorts of fun toys, plus an outside play area with outdoor toys just for Sophie's age. I have enjoyed getting to know other moms, and Sophie literally runs to the building when we gets there and... shall we say... it's a struggle to leave...

Sophie also LOVES animals. Didn't get it from me, that's for sure. "Dog" was her second word (after the ever-important "Dad") - and we don't even have one! (Notice in the first video how she got distracted by the dog - that happened several times that morning). So, I knew that she would enjoy this trip - she had a blast! It took some convincing for ME to feed the animals, but when I saw all the 2-year-olds around me not sharing my trepidation around the goats, I had to toughen up.. ;-)

Why is it that all of the other kids are wearing short sleeve shirts (and some in shorts), and Sophie is in jeans and a sweater?

Because other parents apparently don't know how to properly dress their kids. It was in the low 60s when we left that morning.

If it makes you feel better, though other moms were in tank tops, I was wearing a turtleneck with a long sleeve shirt under it and tights under my jeans. I was a little warm when we left, but certainly not hot. Sophie had a onesie on under the sweater (to protect against the draft), so I took the sweater off before we went home - don't worry.
