Yesterday we went to Ueno Zoo. The weather was not good in the morning, but we promised Iki that we couldn't change our plan. Luckily it got better in the afternoon. Not too hot, but not raining *phew!*
Unlike our previous visits to the zoo, this time Iki was big enough to enjoy. He knew which animals he wanted to see, so we "visited" them based on Iki's order. Monkey - elephant - lion - gorilla - penguins - bear - and goat (mbeeeek :p)
He actually was tired and sleepy already after lunch, but got really excited to play at the baby animal zoo, where children are allowed to touch the animals. Iki played with the goat and chicken (only those two animal went out of the cage at that time). At first he was scared but then he enjoyed himself chasing the hen and goats. Poor animals. They must be frustrated having those wild children chasing and touching them!!!
Unfortunately he lost interest on the other animals as he saw the monorail that connected two parts of the zoo. He wanted to ride it and kept saying "papa, densha! papa, densha! papa, densha! all the way to other animals. And when papa-chan took a brief break for smoking he whined to me "mama, train! mama, train! mama, trainnnnn" (>.<) So he got what he wished, but he headed back home afterwards.
Because he was sleepy anyway, and I got no more power to walk with my high heels (@_@)
Oh...he found this Thomas ride nearby the zoo's exit :p
Arghhh look at me in that photo!! I seriously must start exercising again (_ _o)
It really was a great weekend!
