Sunday, me, my mom,Amani, my aunt Jeanette, and my unckle Ty went to Central Park Zoo. It was a spur of the moment thing. It was alot of fun and it was a good idea. Lately my uncle has been stressed out about his wife being in jail and my mom and I were worried that he would get os stressed out that he would start drinking again so it was good for us  to get out and enjoy ourselves.

Amani really enjoyed herself. We saw a catfish exhibit and when she saw how big they were she went into a giggle fit and she started wiggling her feet. Now being that the trip was spontaneous, I had no camera to take pics of Amani's first trip to the zoo. I guess we'll have to go again with a camera and have her take pics and maybe I'll pass that off as her first trip to the zoo. There was a sea lion performance when they were being fed and when one of the sea lions got close to  Amani she started laughing. I don't think I've ever heard her laugh that hard before. It kind of scared her at first but then she was clapping and it was just... wonderful to watch her enjoying herself. It made me enjoy myself. Even my uncle enjoyed his self.


We had a lovely walk around Manhattan after that. I suggest that people who are stressed take their children and go to the zoo. Watch your kids enjoy themselves and I guarantee it'll make you feel better. Try it
