The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

The Wild Animal Park

Annual memberships are great! When I was home with Keira, I pretty much bought up every kind there was- with the exception of Disneyland. It's so nice to be able to go to any of these places any time we wanted to and not feel like you had to be there all day long to get your money's worth. Today we headed up to the Wild Animal Park knowing that we would probably only be there a couple of hours or so. ESPECIALLY since it was about 90 some degrees! When we got there, they were showing everyone a Kangaroo. Keira just loved being right up next to it. After that, we headed over to the Meerkats as you can see in the pictures below.

There are so many different types of animals at the Wild Animal Park. The Giraffe, Elephants, Gorillas- you name it! Even with all of those wild animals, guess what is Keira's favorite? Yep, ducks. We can see ducks anywhere, but she always ends up more fascinated by them than anything else. She's a funny baby!

Here she is trying to get a really close up look at the ducks!

Feeding the Ducks

The braver ducks really did get pretty close!
Not long after that, we had to head home since it started looking like Keira was allergic to
SOMETHING at the WAP. Her eyes were tearing and her nose was running like CRAZY. One the way home, she treated us to her lovely rendition of the song from The Little Mermaid. I taped it on my camera phone, but I can't quite figure out how to post it. I'll see if I can post it though You Tube tomorrow.
After we got back, Mom volunteered to watch Keira while Dan and I had a date night! Wow! 2 in a month! We're going to get so spoiled! ;) What did we do? We ended up at The Melting Pot in University City. If you haven't been there, definitely go! It's a bit pricey, but the experience is worth it...besides...what more can you ask for other than getting cheese and chocolate???? EXACTLY ;)

Melting Pot is my favorite!! I got a gift card for my birthday and am going to be dragging Mike there soon. As for annual passes, if I ever moved back to CA, a pass to Disneyland would be the first thing on my list! Of course, I do have a bit of a Mouse addiction*S*

YAY for date night. A very treasured experience.

I love taking Chloe to the Wild Animal Park. We didn't go all summer long because of the heat. I'm such a whimp when it comes to hot days.
