I'm Back... and at the Zoo

Hey everyone, I'm back! I haven't disappeared or abandoned my little blog, I've just been sick for the past couple of weeks. And I don't know about you, but when I'm sick I don't really feel like doing much of anything. But, I think I'm all better now and I'm excited to be back.

Last weekend, even though I still felt horrible, I decided we all needed to get out of the house for awhile (Riley, who's now on summer vacation and has been bored out of his mind being couped up with a sick momma, heartily agreed). So, we headed over to Como Zoo and walked around for awhile. the animals weren't overly exciting, they all looked pretty similar to those lions up there, but it was the first time we've been to the zoo where Ava really seemed to be aware of the animals so it was a lot of fun seeing her reactions.

It was a gorgeous day to be outside. There were a few different weddings going on and the day just kinda had a magical feel to it. Right before we left we came across this beautiful carousel. I'm not sure how we've never noticed it before, but somehow we haven't. We found it right before closing, so we didn't get a chance to ride it, but it's definitely on the to do list for the next time we come.

I felt so much better by the time we headed home, it really is amazing what a little sunshine and fresh air will do for you.

The pathway is in the Japanese Garden, it's our favorite part of the zoo.
