So... Our nephew, Brandon, has chosen to spend his spring break with us this week. Awesome!
We love when he comes to stay - he gets to pick the meals (all yummy, of course!), what restaurants we stop by, what we do for fun, and when we take naps... Yep - thatta boy!
Monday is the one day I get to spend with him, so as we lounged around this morning, he asked, "Can we go to that free zoo today?"
A kid after my own heart. Of course!
So, off to Como Zoo we went - on a 30 degree day. Brrrr! Luckily, most of the animals were inside, so we had lots of opportunities to warm up! But the Polar Bear. Now he was having a great day! I've never seen him so active and fun - we loved it!
And the giraffes, orangutans, and zebras said "hi!"
Even the bison... Old friends from South Dakota!
We even stopped in the Conservatory for a peak at the spring flowers - and a glorious whiff of lilies! The smell alone was intoxicating!
Our last stop was lunch at Teresa's... A little Mexican food to top off our day!
Gotta say... We're pretty lucky. We have a pretty darn cool nephew. We adore the fact he still blesses us with his presence over spring break!
Things I am thankful for today:
1. Waking up to sunshine streaming through the blinds.
2. Being asked to go to the zoo... I love the zoo!
3. Polar bears.
5. The warmth of the Conservatory.
6. The smell of fresh flowers!
7. Playing in the gift shop.
8. Talking about adventures and trips - and dreaming about future ones!
9. Going to bed early.
QotD: Who are you fooling?
Ha ha ha. Apparently, no one!
