Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. As I stated on Facebook and Twitter, this was our second trip to this zoo since Little E joined us a little over 2 years ago. In fact, she was less than a month old when we were there last. that was a trip that included draping a blanket over the stroller so that our new bundle of joy didn’t get too much sun on her little body. Needless to say, she slept pretty much the entire time we were there. I guess it was more of a Mommy and Daddy trip to the zoo back then, mostly to get Mama Bird out of the house. Now we can’t even get Little E to sleep during the one hour plus ride to the National Aquarium in Baltimore, or, as it turns out, the same length trip to the zoo, never mind her sleeping while we are in the facility. But she doesn’t enjoy the trip any less, and it makes for a nice, peaceful car ride home.
Lake Tobias Wildlife Park last year and hung out in their petting zoo.
My family always comes first. I never work an extra day, schedule an appointment, or make plans of any kind without first speaking with Mama Bird. The well-being of our family is taken into consideration with every decision that we make. When I first pitched my latest idea to Mama Bird, I was afraid she would think I was crazy. And maybe she did, just a little bit, because she knows that it is going to take a lot of time and effort to get things off the ground. And all that time and effort is in addition to working my current hours, which can fluctuate quite a bit depending on the day. But the end will be justified by the means, and the end result will be a happy, well-taken-care-of family. A dream come true.
