Both kids were amazed by the MRT
Wednesday we needed to get out and let the kids run themselves tired. They were up half the night the night before. Not crying or anything just fidgeting blowing noses, going potty, getting drinks, anything to help them not sleep. So we packed up the stroller and headed for the Taipei Zoo.
We have two clowns!
The first exhibit we came to was the pandas, which the kids were very excited to see. Pierson would walk up to a statue acting as if he didn't see it, then all of the sudden he would gasp and jump back as if it were real and were coming after him... he did this over and over. It was quite funny! They wanted to climb on everything that stood still.
Pierson and Daddy looking at some deer-ish things. He would look all day if we left him to. Maylin -- not-so-much -- she was quickly ready to see what was next, or get back in the stroller. The zoo was pretty nice all around. Not quite the Ashboro Zoo as far as the animals captivity, but very nice in cleanliness and presentation.
Wrangling the hippo's! Giddy up HIPPO!
Anytime there was a slight smell of poop this was the face we got! She is definitely FULL of personality! I think she will give her cousin Caleb a run for his money! Pierson on the other hand is more laidback although he has his moments of wildness too!
Another funny! The zoo was very proud to display how they recycle all the poop! I thought this picture was quite hilarious! If you can't see it well enough it is a pig pooping (in the potty) while drying his hair with a hair dryer that is obviously powered by his droppings. LOL
Daddy with his little ones. They were looking at white rhinoceroses. Pierson often looks to see what other people's reactions are and then reacts accordingly. Maylin on the other hand is more concerned with her stuffed panda -- at least in this picture.
This was the best picture we got of the two of them together. I am feeling my sister's pain just trying to get both of them to stand still and look at the camera is hard!
This was Pierson's highlight of the day! He loves elephants! We saved the best exhibit for last. By this point Maylin was done and wouldn't get out of the stroller. I am not sure she could even see them but she wouldn't budge!
Maylin posing in what we think was supposed to be a pile of poop, which was next to the toilets on the way out. Kind of funny. The kids thought it was the best thing since sliced bread!
That is it for now. We'll post more about the Hello Kitty resturant and the the visit to Taipei 101 with our first meltdown on top of the world! :)
Love everyone and can't wait to see you guys!
