Took the girls to the Zoo today and they had a blast. My favorite part of the day was seeing the African Elephant up close and personal. She was out for a walk around the zoo with her caretakers. We were about 2 feet away from her as she walked by. We were in petting and hugging range! We stayed to the side of the walkway and stayed put as she walked by. Her lead caretaker led her by gently pulling her trunk in the direction he wanted her to go. Less movements than one would use to guide a horse. I was so mesmerized by her I forgot to take a picture or a video of her as she walked by. That was the closest I've ever been to an elephant and I'm still starstruck!
My second favorite was watching the seals. They were our first stop and we enjoyed them so much we went back to watch them before we left. Our first stop I took a picture of the girls on the seal statue. Our second visit to them I took a video of them swimming. They are amazing swimmers! My 3 year old didn't want to leave them the first time and it was a struggle to get her to carry on.
My 6 year old enjoyed seeing the Tiger the most I think. My 3 year old loved the elephant.
A wonderful way to end the summer holidays!

Hi TDN family! In case you were worried, I'm doing ok! We are wet as anything but we don't have flooding in our streets, yards, or homes in my neighborhood-so I'm good! Prayers for our city of Houston, as Harvey is sticking around until Thursday & I hear President Troll is coming in tomorrow...where? Please don't come to my neighborhood bc we are the only ones not flooded!!

Thursday the 31st looks like we may be finally doing our zoo trip with the girls! We promised Bug last year, but didn't have time. This summer we've been so busy and there's only two weeks left until school starts, so if the weather is nice we'll be going.
The girls don't know yet and they'll be happy! Only downer is the zoo we're going to doesn't have lions, which are one of Bugs' favorites.

I am very thankful to my Guild Buddies at TKP and my friends at TDN that helped out with all those expensive items in a super-deluxe care package: 16 expensive stamps, coins, & scarabs from my Wish List; about 40 gourmet treats (super rare, ultra rare)-clearing that Wish List; 6 Christmas Petpets-nearly clearing that Wish List; and a complete set of codestones that they provided for me to encourage me through the sadness of losing a good friend unexpectedly from a car accident. I appreciate all the kind words and support that everyone has sent to help me work through my grief, your words and positive vibes were very much appreciated and touched my heart. Thank you, one and all!
