Thanks to her giraffe toy she was so excited to see all the giraffes and was disappointed when we told her that she couldn't ride them! Good thing we found these ones willing to let a little girl sit on their back.
We ended the day with a carousel ride, I wasn't sure how this would go over since she is always covering her ears and saying things are too loud. This carousel has been around (and restored) since 1914, both Matt and I remember riding it many times as kids ourselves so it was fun to now take her on the ride. Standing up I forgot how fast these things got!
This was truly the highlight of her day. Even after running around, dragging up from animal to animal she has not napped and continues to talk about riding the horsey when she should be sleeping. Come on kiddo, sleep so mommy and daddy can enjoy a peaceful run in a few hours and not one with a crabby kid.
