I know you all think I'm crazy for taking the kids to the zoo once a week. Nuts. Certifiable. Insane.
It's OK. I'm comfortable with it.
Because, look at what we get to see:
Mama swan in her nest with eggs incubating.
On another visit, baby swan, finally born and toddling around.
And, then on yet, another, visit.....taking a first swim.
Look at that punkin go!
Nature playing out right before our eyes. This is why I do it. To see the kids witness this is more rewarding than anything else. It makes my heart warm to know I provided this to them. Nothing fancy.....not a new toy.....but time. And, a walk through the zoo. I hope this is one of the things they remember from childhood. Mom always took us to the zoo.
