Zoo Trip

We took Cayden to the Indianapolis Zoo on September 23.  I woke him up and got him all excited about going.  We quickly dressed, grabbed some milk and a breakfast bar and headed out the door.  We were five minutes from the zoo, when Jesse and I heard a gagging sound in the backseat.  I turned around just in time to see projectile vomit coming towards me.  We quickly made a turnaround and headed for a local Meijer (had to call sis-in-law to help us find one.)  Cayden puked again prior to getting to Meijer.  I kept asking him if he was ok, and he kept saying yes.  He was covered in puke, his car seat was saturated, and our car potent!  I stripped him down and ran into Meijer to get new clothes.  Jesse completely disassembled car seat.....he had to take the seat to the garden department and hose it out!!  After Cayden was dressed in new clothes...he was like a new kid.  He was as happy as could be while jumping all over my car and saying "zoo, zoo, zoo."  Jesse and I assumed that the rush start to the morning, milk, and motion in car attributed to the sickness. 

We headed back towards zoo, and the rest of the day was WONDERFUL. Cayden was particularly fond of feeding the ducks and giraffes. In fact, we had to go thru the giraffe feeding line TEN times. The trainer gave us three bonus sweet potato bites the last time thru. She said that she hadn't ever had a kid go thru that many times!!! We got several videos of him feeding the giraffe (I will attempt to upload one!!) 

Despite our crazy start to the day....we enjoyed our time with our big boy!!
