Other big news from the zoo- Nolan sat on a horse on the carousel!
And while he does look a bit terrified, it's fair to point out he was utterly exhausted too.
After a single ride sitting in the chariot, aka loser seat, Nolan showed some interest in sitting on an emu. I realized I didn't have a ticket to ride again and thought about buying another as we walked off the carousel.
But then it occurred to me that he might not get back on so I sat him down on a horse (a boys first ride should be on a horse anyway, not an emu) that goes up and down and he did a great. (we paid after)
