(along with cows, horses, goats, llamas, alpacas, rabbits, ducks, pigs, and who knows what else). I tried not to worry about the particulates in the air or the germs from the animals and just have a good time. Lemon certainly enjoyed it. We posed for a few more pictures, and then had to head home because Lemon was so worn out by the experience that he needed an extra nap.
Then on Sunday we went to the zoo. We've gone several times before, but until this point, Lemon hasn't really been that interested in the animals, I think because he didn't identify them as living things and couldn't understand why we were so excited to stare at what looked like vast blank spaces. This time, though, he totally got it and was looking right at all the animals. By far the highlight, though, was his first ride on a carousel. I wasn't sure how he'd react but he was squeaking in delight the entire time and actually started to cry when the ride ended. Thus begins my long career of taking Lemon on rides while Papa Bear waits in the shade with the camera...
