Smarter Than Her Daddy Too

You may remember this post from a few weeks ago when Staley proved that she was smarter than me when it comes to construction vehicles.  Well, now Zach gets to join my club.

We have a zoo membership to the Peoria Zoo.  When the weather is nice, Staley and I are frequent zoo visitors.  Although the zoo is small, Staley never gets tired of going to see all the animals.  On Saturday, Zach and Staley went to the zoo together.  They were looking at an exhibit of meerkats when Zach looked down the hall and saw an exhibit with some birds.  He said, "Staley.  Do you want to go see the toucan?"  Ever agreeable, Staley headed down the hallway with Zach.  When they got to the exhibit that Zach had seen, Staley said, "That's hornbill.  Where's toucan, Daddy?"

And, of course, she was right.  Zach checked the exhibit sign and, sure enough, the bird he thought was a toucan was actually a hornbill.  Zach knows about skid steers, and I would have known that the bird was a hornbill.  But Staley wins.  She knows both.
