The Zoo

We had such a wonderful weekend! Grandma Sally and Grandpa Doug went with us to the Fort Wayne Zoo. It is such an awesome place. Growing up in Fort Wayne I remember going to the zoo with my family a lot. It is neat that Leo is getting to do the same thing at the same place I did. Leo really did have fun looking at all the animals, especially the monkeys, penguins and fish. There is something so special about a child at the zoo. At this age, I realize it is more about us, but who cares! We really had a blast. How can you go wrong with a zoo that has two Dairy Queen's in it?

Here we are in front of Monkey Island. We have the same picture of my dad holding me at the same place when I was about Leo's age!

This drinking fountain has been there for at least 30 years!
I couldn't tell you the number of times I've gotten sips
from it throughout my childhood!

Leo and Grandpa rode on the carousel! Leo really enjoyed it.
year we can do the pony rides!

What a cutie!

Grandpa's little buddy

Here are some of the cool animals we saw. The penguins were so cute!

We just had to hit the gift shop on the way out. This red monkey really caught Leo's eye. He was immediately drawn to it! So guess what?
He got to take it home!

Leo's first visit to Hall's.
The two things missing, however, are Uncle Brette and Aunt Dawn.

After the zoo and Hall's we were all tired, but no one was as tired as Leo.
He had a nice nap on the way home. I am sure he was dreaming about all the fun things we did that day and the new animal friends he made.

I hope everyone is doing well! Don't forget to leave your comments, its always nice to see who is visiting the site!

Until next time, lot of love!

Beautiful pictures!!! I can see Leo's personality showing through in them. Sure wish we could be there; but at least we were at Hall's with you in thought. Thanks for making us feel special. Did Leo like the Buster? We miss you all and can't wait until we get to see all of you again. Remember, Leo would like Disney too!

All our love!
