Extrordinary Day!

I LOVE having a four year old again. I was invited to the zoo with a group of special moms and their children. Before I left the house with our little fancy round sandwiches for a picnic lunch, Qavah and I brushed our teeth with bubble gum flavored Crest with blue sparkles in it. When there was no reason to buy that sort of thing, I didn't know what I was missing. I am having a ball. I can remember cleaning carrots for Colin so he could hide in the clothes hamper, pop out with his carrot and say, "What's up doc?" I would crack up watching him play Bugs Bunny, and now I get to do these things all over again with child number four. It's one of the perks I guess. Qavah really enjoyed the animals but when the llamas (running free) headed in her direction looking for hand-outs, she scurried up into my arms faster than a speeding bullet. Here are some pictures of our day.

See the sign on the baby goats! There were no takers today!


This is what a gray elephant looks like when it rolls in good old Virginia red dirt.
