my parents took us to the phoenix zoo while there and we had a blast. i have to admit zoos really are fun, even for adults. to see those animals in person is so mesmerizing. god's creations are beautiful, are they not? maxson wasn't overly excited to see each animal but he did stare at them for a long time so i knew he was looking at them and aware of them. he did although love the non zoo animal birds in the trees, the planes passing overhead (because we were right by the airport), and the tractor doing construction right in front of the zoo. thanks mom and dad for taking us!!!
max did really like the monkeys. he began doing the actions to the monkeys swinging in the tree song and pointing at them.
