Fall re-cap 2

While we were in Indianapolis we decided to check out there zoo. It is not a huge zoo but it had a lot of really cool exhibits. For starters they have a dolphin show! A real, legit inside dolphin show. It was so fun. We live NO where near a Sea World, so I figured large sea animals doing multiple flips was just not in our future. We were really excited to find out about the dolphin show. For a large sum you can even swim with the dolphins, I am fine to just watch from the bleachers :) You could even go under the dolphin tank and be completely submerged in the water and they would swim all around you. The birdies really loved it. They also have a large cheetah exhibit and PrettyBird has had a thing for cheetahs for quite some time. However it was insanely hot and the cheetahs were feeling pretty lethargic, guess they have been out of Africa too long and can't handle the Indiana sun. It was at the cheetah exhibit that I won the mother of the year award. I thought we were ready to leave so I started walking to what I thought was the exit with BabyBird. I realized no one was following me so I headed back, it was at that point a lady came up to me and asked if my little girl had on a striped dress and then pointed over at LittleBird. She said she was crying for her mom and then ran to that man over there. Thankfully that man was her father. Apparently I had started walking one way and he the other, I guess she just stood in the middle. He was only a good 20 feet from her but I guess when she didn't see him she got scared. So when another mother tells you that your child was crying and couldn't find you, yeah, you begin to hear a small applause in the background and an announcer saying, "and the mother of the year award go's to..." Anyway, aside from that little mishap it was a super fun day and we will definitely plan on going back. Here are some pics from our day
