I realized I haven't written a blog posting in a long time. Why? We have been enjoying summer to much to stop and even look at the computer. We've had rainy days of playing games, breezy days in the backyard, and sunny warm days at the lake with friends.
The new adventure this week is . . . a new roof. It's exciting and wonderful but LOUD!! It sounds like someone is going to fall through every second of the day.
And yes, that is my hubby enjoying getting in on the fun of ripping and tearing and hammering. It has been the hottest week we've had this entire summer so the amazing men working on this project are sweating like crazy. So far they've gone through a case of waters and countless amounts of Gatorade (we're keeping the cooler full as we didn't buy the heat stroke insurance!!)
During all this loud craziness, the girls and I decided to take off for a day at the zoo with some fun long time friends.
There were plenty of opportunities to photograph the incredible animals we saw but I thought I'd focus on my little monkeys instead. The Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle is like no other. Evey animal has a beautiful natural habitat and there is so much to see . . . We enjoyed lots of viewing and laughing and picnicking and exploring and marveling at all the different kinds of animals. I was questioning how people can deny a creator when you really look at the diverse shapes and sizes . . . could you have thought up a giraffe, a hippo, a toucan or a porcupine?
What a wonderful day it was. I could have stayed forever. Haley (our little animal lover) was awestruck and amazed. She stood the longest at each exhibit and took in each little thing. When I asked her what her favorites were at the end of the day she said the taper because she'd never seen anything like it and the wart hogs because they were a brand new exhibit and I think she felt like she discovered a new species or something. I loved watching the whole thing through her eyes.
As I type, the banging continues. I hope I have a chance to publish before some hard working man falls through the ceiling and lands on my computer.
Hope you're enjoying the pace of summer . . . the possibilities of endless adventures . . . and the memories you're making with your family each day.
