Note: Jack + Cody Take The Zoo

We are now proud members of the Birmingham Zoo! Basically, Jack + I have Fridays off together. Before, when it wasn't 100 degrees, we would spend the majority of our Fridays out in our neighborhood. But now, walking the block or heading to the park down the street is really not very fun unless we go at like 8 AM. I was trying to figure out anything I could do with him that would be fun, different + also keep us cool - so we tried out the Zoo + we love it!

There are tons of inside exhibits, shaded areas + a splash pad. Jack can't really get in the splash pad right now, but he likes dipping his feet in + watching the other kids play in it! We've already been twice since we became members, and honestly this will probably be a new weekly thing for us. 

So far, Jack really likes the Petting Zoo area + the giraffes! The other animals interest him 0% haha, but we'll get there! I'm hoping to be able to head across the street to the Botanical Gardens soon, but so far, it has been WAY too hot!

BTW - Ergo 360 is the best purchase we've ever made. Jack is literally obsessed + thinks its the funnest thing ever!

Mamas - what do you guys do with your babies in the hot summer months?
