The Bronx Zoo!
When Andrew and I were dating, we were pretty spontaneous. We would randomly feel like going hiking for the day, play hooky from work, and then go climb a mountain. I remember once, right before we left, we thought it would be a lot of fun to make it a camping trip. So, on our way to the mountain, we stopped at Target and bought a 2 person tent. Side note: a 2-person tent becomes a one person tent when one of your persons is 6'4 240lbs. I digress...Anyway, our spontaneity has vanished to almost nothing after having Adalyn. We are still pretty adventurous (taking a 10 month old half way around the world on a 6 hour time change counts as adventurous, right?), but it was about time that we decided to do something cool last minute. Well, obviously our idea of "cool" has changed too, but we were super excited when my friend texted me at 9pm Saturday night to see if we wanted to join them at the Bronx Zoo on Sunday. We almost immediately said yes, even though it meant missing church. We had such a fun day! The best part of the day was in the gorilla exhibit when a gorilla came right up to the glass to say hello. I wish we had thought to record Adalyn's giggles on video.
