We were wrong.
Come to find out, it was opening day for spring training. The airline was booked with lots and lots of baseball fans.
To make a very looooong, frustrating story short, we got to Sea Tac at 6am and arrived in Arizona at midnight.
I asked Sam to give me a "thumbs up" if he wanted to feed the giraffes. He didn't hesitate his answer.
Sam had no fear at all about walking up to the giraffes and handing them lettuce.
His face cracks me up. He's so cool about it, like its something he experiences on a regular basis.
We also got to pet the stingrays! This was the highlight of the day for me. I think stingrays are some of the coolest animals.
Again, the kid showed no sign of fear.
For dinner, we took Papa Bailey out to Mexican food at Filiberto's where Sam got a mustache from the quarter machine :)
