We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

A Trip to the Zoo

One of the things that Jody and I had planned months ago that we would do on this trip was a trip to the San Antonio Zoo. In all the years we have been taking trips to Texas we have never been there.
Caily and I matched for the day......(don't you love the way she is posing for the picture?)
The Grizzly Bear was pretty imposing.....
....just look at those claws! Sure wouldn't want to meet him in the woods.
.......from caterpillar to butterfly. Lexi wasn't too sure about sticking her head through but Caily thought it was great fun.
Lexi had to climb up on the fence to get a better look....
 ....or right up to the glass, whatever the case might be.
....or right down on the ground. Nothing shy about this little girl!
.....I love this picture of sisters! So sweet!
 What's this? A hooded merganser which we see all winter long in the pond we walk around. Just seemed strange to see it in a zoo so just had to take a picture close-up! I marvel at God's creation everytime I see the detail on these birds in the wild.
Hugs! We've come a long way from Christmas two years ago when she wasn't even sure that she wanted to come to any of us!.....and for that I am truly thankful!

Love the photo of Cailey and you! Where are your baggy jean cut-offs?
I guess capris is as good as it gets.
