We took Max for his first zoo visit to the OKC Zoo for his birthday.  We walked 4 miles over 4 hours, seriously, I kept track with my Timex.

Max liked walking in the Bamboo, riding the train and playing on the playground.

We walked around a corner and saw a tiger standing 2 feet away from us.  Thank God there was a chain-link fence separating us.

The most interesting part was witnessing a silverback gorilla chasing/swatting a gorilla mother and her baby.  It was right in front of us and I think our eyes about popped out because it caught us off guard and they were really loud.  A zoo employ eating his lunch mentioned to us that what was happening was normal.

I just kept thinking that if this was an episode of Cops the silverback would have been taken away in cuffs.

Last week Max got to meet his Grandpa and Grandma Knapp in person, not Skype.  We arrived at their house after being up for nearly 24 hours.  Max a nap on the long flight but it didn’t last long.

Max also had a good time pestering his uncle Nathaniel.  But Nathaniel won Max’s heart over with enough ice cream to feed a village!
