Gideon's Day at the Zoo
We recently had an outing with Alex's brother Israel, his wife Joyce, and their two boys Luis Jr. and Israel Jr. This fun filled outing took place at Van Saun Park. If you haven't ever been to Van Saun Park in Paramus, and you have kids, you should definitely go. They have a zoo, a train ride, a carousel, pony rides, and of course the must-have play ground. I was pretty excited about this. This is the reason why I was so happy to have kids. I mean, I can't very well ride around on a carousel all day, having my picture taken. But if I have a BABY with me, then it's all good.
We started off by going to see the animals at the zoo. Gideon slept in his stroller for some of it, but then he woke up to find himself not in a nice air conditioned car, but in a steamy, smelly place with wild animals staring at him. That is why he looks so serious in all of these pictures. Normally I wouldn't let you see a yucky picture of myself, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices if your kid is cuter than you.
He didn't seem too happy, but he perked up when he saw that his cousins were around. His favorite thing in life is to grab Izzy's ears, and put his feets on Izzy's head. Notice how Gideon makes himself at home as we wait for the train.
