Off to visit the family?

We had our grandchildren staying with us for a couple days and nights. Since we love to entertain them, we took them to the Zoo yesterday.

(My husband said that every time his parents took him to the zoo, they said they were going to visit family members :) Whatever! FYI we do not believe Darwin was correct.)

We all had a good time. Children and animals seem to mix well. The day was beautiful and HOT. These little guys were troopers. They were absolutely wonderful. (If someone had pushed me in a stroller and kept me hydrated and bought me toys, I would have been good, too.;) BTW, both of them had strollers.)

Here are a few pictures from our little outing.

One of the first things we saw was the turtles -- big turtles.

She wanted her little brother to take a picture with her, too!

"This stroller riding is pretty awesome stuff."
This is a little boy who loves his wheels -- wheels on anything!
He is such a pleasant little fellow!

The flamingos were beautiful!

Lunch time!

"Me, too!"
After lunch we were off again to see more animals.
Our little grandson (soon to be one) was so excited when he saw the monkeys.
He pointed and started jabbering -- trying to tell me all about them.
Yes, I know, he's so cute ;)

Next we saw the monkeys, gorillas, "Dinosaurs Unearthed", wolves, bush dogs, all kinds of birds, butterflies and much more.

Then we saw the giraffes.

And zebras.
(We saw an animal that was part giraffe and possibly part zebra.
Very strange looking!)

OK -- just one more spin around the zoo!

I think this picture pretty much says it all!
They had a fun day. They both slept very well that night!

God is so good to allow us to have family to love and cherish! I am so blessed to be able to be a part of these little ones lives on a weekly basis. Sometimes, being in the ministry full time means separation from family. We are blessed to only be 2 1/2 miles from these little sweethearts.

The next tripped planned is the Jazmine Moran Children's Museum ! See you there!
