The Frog Family headed to the city to see Frog's neurologist. We are getting ready to do a trial of a stimulant type medication (I'll post about this later). After the appointment, we went to the zoo. Diva brought along Flat Silvia so she would have something to show at school. Her Silvia post will be on the Stanley and Silvia site in a few days. Frog did really well. We walked the zoo grounds for over an hour and a half.
When we got to the zoo, we ate a picnic lunch. The squirrels were begging for an invitation. Frog obliged by dropping most of his lunch on the ground - just not the cookies!
Frog spent a lot of time up close and personal with the piranah.
He was also a fan of all the big snakes! Yikes!!
It took us awhile, but we finally found the elephants.
We also got to see a baby gorilla. When they finally moved on, closer to us, Frog got very excited to see the baby gorilla riding on its mother's back. He started to squeal in his very high pitched and loud way - got the attention of a lovely docent who "understood, but....." so we moved on. There was still a lot to see. Here is some video of another child with the gorilla.
