The zoo and the haircut

We went to the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC with our friends this past weekend. We were so excited to bring Sam to the zoo for the first time! He's still a bit too young for the zoo, but he did have a good time. He noticed some of the animals, but he mostly people watched. Next year is going to be even better!

The zoo itself is a great. Rob and I love going to zoos. We actually had our honeymoon in San Diego and it was a must to go to the zoo. ( i had to see the panadas!) My fav animal at the Columbia zoo was the koala bears and some of the snakes. As an added bonus, there is a botanical garden next to the zoo that you can visit. One of my favorite part about the garden was this paved trail that brought you back to the zoo. It was super steep and a bit tricky with the stroller, but it was so lovely being in the woods.

To end the day of fun, Sam had his first haircut! Our friend is a hair stylist so I asked if she could Sam's hair when we met up with them at the zoo. Now, I really really did not want to cut Sam's hair! I mean really, he's not even a year old! But he started to look pretty messy. So as we were leaving the restaurant after the zoo, I asked our friend if she cared for cutting Sam's hair right there since we were all so tired and just needed to go home (we were almost 2 hours away from home).

We took the bumbo and plopped it right on the trunk of their car, on the side of the street on a major road! We were all laughing pretty hard. But what a great story to tell Sam! He did pretty good too. Probably distracting enough than being inside at a salon. And Sam looks so much better now! We didn't get too much cut off, just along the neck and some on the top.
