A Trip to the Zoo!

Christopher has been flipping through his books for weeks, looking at the animals and repeating the noises the animals make.  He seems to have picked up on quite a few recently at school, along with the signs for some of them.  So on Saturday morning, we took him on his first trip to the zoo.  This was also the first trip to the Houston Zoo for Sara and me, even after living here for years.
Christopher was pretty excited when we got there...
But this was the look on his face most of time.  He was pretty serious about the animals.
Although a cow is not a very exotic zoo animal, Christopher quickly recognized him and let out a big "Moo!"  
Note the hand on his head as he was attempting to sign for cow.
He also enjoyed the domestic ducks and turtles.
 He, of course, liked seeing the elephants.
But his favorite part of the trip was getting to see the chimps!  "Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh"
We had a great time seeing the zoo animals, and I know Christopher can't wait to go back.
