My busy weekend started on Friday when Bean, Emmy & I headed to the Columbus Zoo. It was our first trip of the year. Despite the LARGE amount of school children on a field trip, it wasn’t that bad.
We started in the aquarium…
Checking out the new gorilla…
It’s a baby!!
Checking out the orangutans…
The kangaroos were the 2nd favorite animal this time. I taught Emmy the night before how the kangaroo hops. Right after this picture, two of these took off to the other side of the exhibit. She said, “They boing.”
Here’s the #1 animal so far of every trip….a “duck”. Emmy still thinks anything with feathers larger than a bird is a duck. Where we like to eat lunch there was a family of geese… “baby duck”, “mommy duck” and “daddy duck”. Emmy was in heaven. Anytime she’d spot a duck, goose or swan, she’d say, “I see ducks”.
This “duck” really wanted her lunch.
The baby elephant was asleep…I hope!
Still loving the polar bears. Even though it was apparently time for a nap…they’re just so darn cute!
Checking out Brutus & Buckeye, the brown bear brothers.
The bobcat. Emmy thought it looked like our cats… “meow”.
Finally, a decent bald eagle picture for Scott.
There was hardly anyone at the otters by the time we made it to their exhibit. I got some good pictures, but this is my favorite.
So that was Friday. Saturday was spent at the garden (see the post below) and visiting with my brother and his wife in the evening.
Sunday after church I went on an impromptu road trip with my Mom, little brother Nick & Bobby B. At first, Mom was going to treat us to McD’s and eat it on their back deck. But as we headed there, she was like, “KFC sounds good.” So we headed towards Coshocton. We took the KFC to Lake Park for a picnic. Afterwards, we walked around the Lake and then stopped for a Frosty on the way home. We stopped at Emerson’s, too, for some flowers to plant. I did a little rehab/craft project later on, but I’m saving that for it’s own post.
