Here's Harper and Aunt Meaghan in front of some elephants.
Here's Harper giving a drink to an elephant statue. That was one of many things that cracked us right up! She offered the sippy cup to the end of the elephant's trunk; not totally accurate, but not a bad idea either.
Once we were inside, Manatee Springs was one of Harper's favorite parts of the trip. She thought the Manatees were big fish, and greatly enjoyed them. If you look closely at her face in this photo, she was clearly unsure about the intentions of the large manatee statue. Being suspicious of large "fish" probably isn't a bad instinct.
Aside from the manatees, the elephants, polar bears, and the giraffe were probably Harper's favorite animals. We also enjoyed a close encounter with a peacock. We rounded out the day nicely with Harper's first train ride. She wasn't sure about staying on Aunt Meaghan's lap until the train got going. Once we were moving she enjoyed waving to the people watching, and saying, "Wee!"
