Zoomars Petting Zoo

Went to the Anaheim Packing House before heading to Zoomars petting zoo.

Delicious strawberries that we did not buy any of.

DSC08637

But Aiden was only into the watermelon.

DSC08639

THIS is MY kind of place.

DSC08642

Aiden was very eager to get on the swing.

DSC08644

Yay, that means I get to rest.

DSC08647

But this mellowness didn’t last long!

DSC08652

Aiden wanted to go upstars.

DSC08662

So much to see – no wonder he never wants to go home.

DSC08665

But he never ended up sitting on the John Deere Gator tractor.

DSC08668

Instead we walked around and around.

DSC08669

Daddie spent time doing some photographing – Nice!

DSC08679

Aiden’s favorite hangout here.

DSC08681

We watched the short video at least 10 times.

DSC08689

That was Mommie’s second resting spot.

DSC08694

When the restaurants started opening up, Aiden was being very naughty.

DSC08698

All that could stop him was FOOD!

DSC08702

Bad luck – nails in the car – took part of the fun out of it.

DSC08705

We are trying to convince Aiden to feed the guinea pigs.

DSC08711

He wasn’t interested, especially since he just woke up from a short nap in the car.

DSC08716

The only effort he was willing to exert was to hold our hand as we fed the guinea pigs.

DSC08732

Sorry Aiden, Mommie passed some of my fears over to you.

DSC08743

Train ride alone.

DSC08779

But Aiden is happy any way.

DSC08781

He loved to wave at us.

DSC08784

Free ride when you check in on Yelp.

DSC08786

Ride only goes round and round.

DSC08798

Playground time.

DSC08799

I actually feel he’d enjoy staying here longer.

DSC08808

He just woke up from his nap, so he’s got plenty of energy.

DSC08829

But we didn’t stay long.

DSC08840

We spent a few days prepping Aiden about riding a horse.

DSC08844

That morning Daddie even showed him Emma’s video of her “flying” on the horse.

DSC08851

That was definitely very helpful.

DSC08862

Now, to the highlight of the day.

DSC08868

Oh nasty, smelly horse poop.

DSC08874

We are warming him up to going on the horse.

DSC08884

He didn’t want to go on the white one.

DSC08888

He sad he wanted to go on the black one, maybe because we had pointed that horse from the beginning.

DSC08890

But then he was afraid.

DSC08893

To Daddie’s surprise Aiden was willing to go on the horse even though he was scared.

DSC08896

Daddie held his hand and walked with him.

DSC08903

I knew Aiden can do it!

DSC08905

Even without Daddie’s comforting hand.

DSC08908

Whoa cowboy, be careful there.

DSC08911

I guess he realized Daddie was away.

DSC08915

Haha, we are happier than Aiden!

DSC08916

 

DSC08919

Right after the ride we asked him if he wanted to go again.

DSC08923

But he said no.

DSC08927

It wasn’t until a few days later when he looked at the pictures again that he said he liked it.

DSC08932

And now he is imitating Emma flying

DSC08934

I think it’s the calmness of the horse that helped too.

DSC08935

It’s not the same when you’ve got an animal that’s charging at you or super hyper like a dog.

DSC08936

Looking good!
