We had a great weekend, as I am sure most people did. It was gorgeous and felt amazing outside! We headed to the zoo early Saturday morning. Coleman Dairy was sponsoring a day of free admission.We thought we were being smart by getting there as soon as the zoo opened, but there were already a ton of people there. The line to get in was long, but it moved quickly. We met our friend Dedee and her children there. We had a wonderful time and Dedee's kids are always such a great help with my three. We saw (and smelled) almost every animal there. After the zoo, Dedee had the great idea to go across the street to a little park and have a picnic lunch. It was nice to get to sit down and chow down. We had the best time.
After the zoo, we loaded up and headed to Nana and Poppa's house. They grilled out for supper and it tasted awesome (as ususal). Granny, Pawpaw, and Memaw came over and we had another fantastic weekend of visiting with everyone. We got to meet Seth's friend Irena, who is now a family friend. He doesn't get to keep her all to himself anymore :o) She is from Russia and one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She greeted us all with a hug and an open heart. It felt like we have known her for years. I pray that she has a safe journey home and doesn't forget about us! Come back soon, Irena.
Now to document our day at the zoo.
I can completely relate.
