catch up

I don't usually like an all-in-one "catch up" post, but I think that's what's happening here.  It seems like the last couple weeks have been busy.  Last week, after work on Friday, we packed up and headed to Grammi and Grandpa's for Memorial Day/Early Father's Day weekend.  On Saturday, we were able to visit Aunt Miki's chickens and Lucy collected all the eggs.  She thinks all animals want to be her pet.  A painted turtle made it's way into Gram's yard, it was the oddest thing since there isn't water nearby and it's fenced. Lucy sees wild animals and says, "I want it," thinking she can just go pick it up.  The turtle was no exception. I try to explain that they want to stay with their families.

We went to a very wet parade on Monday-Lucy was excited about the suckers.  She did ask if there would be elephants.  Tony took Tuesday off as well so that we could go to the Toledo Zoo.  It was a lot of fun.  I still really love the jelly fish-they look so peaceful.  This year the Nature's Neighborhood was finished and Lucy had so much fun in the "stream."  So did I, what a cool idea.  The baby polar bear was pretty neat, too. All this fun has happened at the expense of the cleanliness of our apartment so hopefully today I'll be able to catch up on the laundry.

The rest of the Zoo pictures.
