Happy Trails

After our pleasant experience at the remarkable zoo in Omaha last week, I thought it might be fun to take K to the Elmwood Park Zoo -- a small but sweet little zoo that is very close.It was a wonderful surprise for both of us that they offer pony rides!

They also have a wonderful playground area. This zoo is just geared for younger kids. We now have an annual membership there too.After our big morning, these pals curled up with a 'blankie' and puzzle to unwind.

  7. Leslie I LOVE the new header you made. Atticus and Kiran have to be the 2 most photogenic and expressive pair I've ever seen. They are both gorgeous!! I last saw K when he was few months old & swear he gets cuter by the day! :) I've been swamped this week and am now heading to the beach, but plan on working on my blog when I get back. thanks again for some of your tricks of the trade :)

  14. Dear Stiffie:

    I think it is wonderful that Kiran will always associate his first pony ride -- and all that fun -- with you! A boy's first pony ride is a very special event in his life... And it looks like Kiran will expect you to repeat this experience many times. He is so lucky to have a Meemaw like you -- to think up all these fun things for him to do.

    I was at a kind of zoo myself today. I was canted over in a tight right turn on Skyline Drive in Virginia, when I aw the cutest pair of deer. In fact, my motorcycle passed between them at about 45 mph. I said the most amazing things, when I remembered to breathe again.

    Your pictures capture life... Then release it again when it is needed most.

    I remain,

  15. Sometimes, the only thing that helps you unwind is a puzzle. I like a puzzle of the states, where the states are shaped like states, but sometimes that's too nervewracking and I need a puzzle with a picture of jello where the pieces look like a big flan of jello and a dish.

    It depends on the horse, really.

    What great photos. But you don't need me to tell you!
