Oh, don’t worry. We didn’t head back to the North Shore so quick (sadly), but I forgot I had taken these photos on the day we left last week! I found them in my camera, and I added them onto this week’s post.
These were taken from a picnic we had on our way back home. It was also the place where we taught Ezra the game of “throw the rocks in the lake.” He was quite pleased. Also? Lots of rocks to choose from…
I just loved these seagulls and how they were sitting along the shore.
And I might make this my desktop image.
This weekend, we took the kid back to the zoo. It had been a few months, and the weather was nice. He was enamored with the splash pad there, and next time we’ll bring the swimsuit for more play time.
And once again, he loved getting up close to the leopards.
Today he saw grizzly bears, black bears, sea otters, leopards, tigers, caribou, camels, horses, penguins, wild boar, prairie dogs, foxes, coyotes, turtles and wolves (to name a few). If you ask him his favorite part of going to the zoo, he will tell you honestly. It was the “yellow popcorn!” Kids.
But at least we were successful in wearing him out. This was as we pulled up to the house after our trip.
Later this weekend, we played in the “pool” outside. Ezra’s new favorite game is pouring water on us (or anyone, really). So now he fills a cup and then chases you around the yard laughing and screaming. It’s a blast.
And lastly, Ezra’s grandmother sent him a Thomas the Train toy that makes its own steam (cool to the touch). That occupied several hours this weekend, and we were told that the train also deserves a spot at the dinner table. Ahem. So there it sat, at the other end, where it could not be played with, but was part of the family.
