Grandpa at the Zoo!

Can you believe it! We got Grandpa to the zoo.

Now that the weather has cooled down a little, my Dad agreed to go to the Zoo with us. Heather and Christian were in town, so we all went together. We really had a great time. The best thing about having a Zoo pass, you can go and leave when you want. You don't have to worry whether you saw all the animals or not, because there is always next time! We just go and when the kids
are ready to leave, we leave.
I sure enjoy spending so much time with my Dad lately. He doesn't work any more and if you didn't know, we live across the street from him and my Mom. So, any errands I need to run, I see if my Dad needs to run any and we go together. Most of the time he's helping me more than I'm helping him.
Dad, I'm glad you don't work anymore, except at trying to keep up with me and Lanny! I sure love seeing you and spending so much
time with you. Thanks!
We went the week after Halloween so the Zoo was still decorated festively. Of course we had to take full advantage of the picture opportunities.

It seems like every time I go to the Zoo I learn or see something new. This is the closest that we have ever seen the tiger. Also, I don't know if it's male or female, but whatever it is seemed to be longing for a companion. It just kept letting out this sad, moaning, cry. (Something I've never heard in my entire life and I'm sure I'll never hear it again) I didn't know they could sound like that!
Landon absolutely loved the water ball monument thing. I have never let him play in it before, but boy it was tough getting him away from it!

I love all your pictures. Yes, I will be moving back to Canada with my family when my braces is off. Another 8 months or so. I still have a while here and enjoying my last holidays in Utah. I will miss Utah and all my friends here. I just want to thank you for holding the craft night. I love it and I started doing a little wood crafts myself as a gift to my family and friends not selling tho. You inspire me to find my own talents and I am forever in debt in your kindness to share. I hope someday I can do wood crafts like you. Looking forward to another of yours craft night.

You are a zoo fanatic! I let my zoo pass expire. Darn. We wanted to go this fall & now it is getting pretty cold.
