The Burkes are in town visiting and this time they brought their daughter, AJaye. AJaye hasn’t been quite sure about Sydney since she arrived at our house. “Why is this little person following me around everywhere?” Sydney remains enthralled by any older kids.
Eric began calling Sydney Sid Vicious as the weekend went on. Vicious? Proof of that here when we arrived at the zoo and we put AJaye and Sydney in the Jeep together. AJaye wasn’t happy and Vicious loved every minute of it.
The first big animal cage we walked up to was the elephant. Sydney just stared at him for a few seconds and then suddenly burst out into screams. Screaming and pointing. These were not screams of fear. Oh, no — they were screams of excitement! Every large animal she saw that moved around a bit was greeted this way.
The tigers were being very playful since it was nice and cool outside.
Sydney recognized cats because she has a few and she got up out of her chair to tell them off. Ti-Ti would have been proud.
As the final activity of the day, we all took a quick train ride.
