Laila at the Prospect Park Zoo

After a snack on the terrace, Laila discovered the signs for the petting zoo:

As we were walking around the park after a trip to the farmers' market, Laila stopped every few feet to pat the watermelon tucked underneath the stroller. She enjoyed the watermelon at dinner-time.

Laila riding the carousel at Schenley Park

Laila rode the carousel at Schenley Park. The first time around, she rode on an elephant. The second time, this seadragon. Then we took a break and she gathered leaves into her bucket. When her dadabapa arrived she rode the carousel twice more, on a giraffe and finally on a triceratops.

Then she had a bowl of ice-cream! And then a bowl of mung beans!
