We spent this Saturday afternoon at the Phoenix Zoo with my mom who is visiting from Idaho. We have had an annual pass since Noah was born, but this year it was completely different. He is so interested in all the animals, all the people, everything happening around him. He is also trying to say the names of the animals! It was so much fun!
Noah looking at the ostrich and the antelope.
Seeing the orangutan up close... Noah was trying to say "orangutan", look at those lovely lips!
Noah fed the giraffe and was such a brave little guy, even when the giraffe licked him with that long, long tongue!!!
Taking a break and acting like a cheetah!
Can't leave the zoo without a ride on the carousel.
I love this age.. I wish I could bottle him up and keep him just as he is right now!!! Although I seem to say that at every stage!

Last weekend was the big Easter egg hunt for one of our local Down syndrome groups. When we arrived, the music was very loud with people running all over, dancing, playing, etc. It was a little overwhelming at first for Noah. He choose to sit back and observe everyone for a while.
There was a group egg hunt which was so much fun - Pictures with the easter bunny (which he decided was a little too scary) - and lots of bubbles floating around just waiting to be popped!
Once he realized that the bunny ears everyone was wearing were to celebrate Easter, he was ok, and had a lot of fun.
By the end of the event, he was dancing with the best of them!!!
