Song-osity: A day with Roo

I, I did it all I owned every second that this world could give...
I saw so many places the things that I did...
Yeah...I swear I lived...

Ronan and I had a wonderful "Mar Mar and Roo" day before I left Portland: a day at the zoo! It's been a tradition since Noam was this age to go to the zoo, now I started the tradition with Ronan.

He clutched our tickets as we made our way along the paths. Every time he saw a duck he would quack, when were at the petting zoo he learned that goats go "bahhhhh," and the cutest bit might have been when we got to the cheetahs. His reaction was as great as Noam's two years ago - an O'Glasser favorite for sure.

He walked the majority of the zoo, pointing out the animals, rocks, and water he saw all along the way. He loved every moment of it, jumping, clapping, babbling all the way through the zoo. And I loved every moment of it, right along side him!

Ronan's joy and enthusiasm is just beyond contagious and it was the first of many, many special days together, for sure.
And! Come link up and join the Good.Random.Fun. each Monday, right here!

What a lovely post, such wonderful expressions. Toddlers and young children really do live every moment, don't they.

Oh my, I adore that shot of him from behind running down the path. Isn't that the epitome of childhood? Running towards the unknown, the future? Perfect! Thanks for joining in at Song-ography.

it is such fun going to the zoo with little ones. I wish we had one here instead of a 2 hour drag to get to our capital city.
Have a great week.

I can almost hear him smiling and shouting of joy!! Everything has a different and better 'taste' through children's eyes!

Tamar, sounds like you should write and illustrate a children's story book about this little guy. "Mar Mar and Roo" is a great title to start with. Teacher/Author????? Something to do on snow days. :)
