How Now Zoo Cow?

This photo montage represents Lincoln's trip to the Montgomery Zoo. We visited there with Jason's aunt and uncle during our 2 weeks living ouy of our car like gypsies. It was a fun filled 2 weeks but traveling ain't easy on a 2 year old who has a special relationship with his bed (specifically his bumper pads). So this was Lincoln's commentary...

Lincoln: Cow?
Me: No, Lincoln that's an American Alligator.
Lincoln: Cow?
Me: No, silly, that's a hungry jaguar.

Lincoln: Cow?
Me: No, that's a, hmm, that's a, well, it looks like a kangaroo/pig/rat to me!

Lincoln: Cow?
Me: Nope. Flamingo. Try again.

Obviously he's a little confused. With a beat up face and mussed hair, who can blame the little gypsy baby.

Lincoln: Cow?
Me: Well, considering we are not on a farm but at the zoo, this is about as close as you're going to get Lincoln.

Lincoln: Roll Tide! (you thought he was going to say Cow, didn't you?)
Jason: Yeah buddy! Roll Tide, elephants!
Sadly he's managed to brainwash my 2 year old also.
These 2 salivating over the sight of those ugly elephants. I prefer the tigers at the zoo. They get to lay around and eat MEAT!
Lincoln: Cow?
Me: Ok, buddy, it's time to go home. We can see cows just about anywhere.
Jason: Yeah, Mom's college was FULL of cows!
Smart Aleck!
Lincoln: Cow?
Me: No, bud, that's a horse. Do you ever give up?

Lincoln and Jackson: Roll Tide!
Me: Ugh, I've LOST this battle. Oh well, I've still got enough pride to say WAR EAGLE!
And that concludes our trip to the zoo.
For journalism sake, there was a MAJOR meltdown by Lincoln over a pb&j or a juice box or maybe nothing at all shortly before the conclusion of the zoo trip. Sadly it wasn't the first one that day...nor the last.
Oh Lincoln!

  1. If it makes you feel any better Jamie, Delainey totally pulled her pants down and started to pee right in front of the elephants a few weeks ago (it was still early in potty training for her) at the Montgomery Zoo! Ha, apparently she isn't an Alabama fan either!
