We went to the Budapest Zoo with the Beattys earlier this month. Gary and the kids have only been one other time, two years ago when Sienna was just 4 months old.
Ethan was more into the petting zoo part than Sienna was. She mostly wanted Gary to hold her. She was fine to hold her hand out sometimes, but wanted Gary to be with her. However, she did pet a python snake. Go figure! Even now, she talks about how the snake was nice to her (because it didn’t bite her).
I was a little concerned when Sienna started pointing to this peacock and getting her finger closer and closer to its head and then it started moving its head toward her finger. I pulled her finger away before something happened to cause her to fear peacocks for the rest of her life.
We had a great spot to eat lunch, sitting by this pond.After eating, the kids enjoyed watching the pelicans, turtles, and ducks (including baby ducks) swimming around. And we found out that a pelican will eat banana.
