So, after the kids spent 2 hours at VCU this morning, we spent a few hot hours enjoying the zoo. It was great to see Joseph able to respond to what he was seeing this year. It was great to see Abigail act confidently in when she knew and how she acted on the trip.
|Jos, in awe of the giraffes|
|Jos and Baba feeding a giraffe|
|That is my daughter's arm. Her hand is inside the giraffe's maw.|
|Zebras. If the kids get any cuter I might explode.|
|Me and my kiddos with my 2nd favorite zoo animal. |
Giraffes win first prize. (Beautiful, tall horses? Can't be beat.
But these pre-historic relics come pretty close.)
|After almost 2 hours in the almost 100 degree heat,|
Larry got saddled with two hot, sweaty,
exhausted kids. (We need to be strategic in
planning for our NYC trip later this summer!)
