Zoo Also Good

A sunny spring day is a rare treat in the Pacific Northwest. It is true that we get a lot of rain here, especially in the spring and early summer. . . thus the lush green that you see everywhere, even throughout July and August! I think it also makes the rare days of sun even more special and you can almost taste the promise of summer in the air.

One of my girlfriends and I planned a trip to the zoo for yesterday. Like true Northwest Moms, we were prepared to go rain or shine (and really knowing rain was far more likely). How lovely that Mother Nature decided to send down some sun rays.

Will had a great time! Strangely enough, however, he didn't seem that interested in the animals this time. He liked the penguins (we were fortunate to be there during their morning feed) . . .



but he was way more interested in this boat that was right next to the penguin habitat. . .
He also liked the monkeys (always a favorite!) . . .
But he much preferred the tractor at the Family Farm. . .
However, the true winner of the day was when stopped to have a picnic lunch and he could run wild. . .

It's been a good week!

We went to the zoo on Friday too! Of course we went to Melbourne Zoo, Australia, but still that is funny. We actually had lovely weather for autumn too.

Glad you enjoyed the visit. Looks like Will certaintly did!
