End of a visit/Imaginations

My granddaughter and grandson have returned to Colorado. We had such a fun time with them while they were here. My DIL's family also lives in Ohio, so there is alot of family time going on. On our last day together we went to the Columbus Zoo. My daughter-in-law made the cutest video of the cousins at the zoo. I can't seem to show it to you. You can tell by my pictures, or lack of pictures, that I wasn't up to par. The headaches turned into a stiff neck and it was painful. So I didn't take many pictures. I am not feeling the photo shop thing this morning so some of the pics are on their side.
I got pictures of the reindeer and the flamingo. Also pictures of the new Sting Ray Bay. You got to touch them and feed them. The kids thought that was fun.....except for Mabel. She would rather be on Uncle B's shoulder.
Don't know who the boy in the flowered shorts belongs to.
Goose is still so impressed with loosing her first tooth. This was a brand new hat with the rip built in.
Loved this flamingo. He was so friendly. I don't think I ever petted a flamingo. This one kept rubbing the zoo keeper's neck.
The Colorado kiddos.
Uncle B and Mabel.
When we were looking at the reindeer, Patrick started asking me about the reindeer, Rudolph and Santa. We discussed how Santa must have dropped him off at the zoo for the summer. Another little boy came up and was asking his parent similar questions.
Patrick also was talking about my fairy garden. He asked if I ever put food in there. It took me a minute to realize he meant "for the fairies". I thought that was the cutest thing.
The pain in my neck is going away and I think I will try to do a little painting.
Hope you all have a sweet week.

Always enjoy seeing the family, nothing better as far as I'm concerned. Hope you're feeling better. Can't wait to see what you do with your ASCP;-). Love, Penny

Fun times. Glad your neck is feeling better.

Oh, Debby- You have the sweetest family. I am sure you are going to miss those kids. Are you tired out yet? lol I am taking the 3 girls for the next 3 days on a little "vacation" over to the Lake Michigan shore. That should be a hoot. I think I will come home more tired than I left.

I love that your gs asked you if you put food out for the fairies. Isn't that dear? Goose lost a tooth, huh? That's pretty exciting. I suppose that is the next step to growing up for our SweetCheeks, too. sigh...kinda sad in a way.

Glad your neck is feeling better. I'll trade you my good neck for a good ankle! xo Diana

I bet you'll be missing the kids. Too bad they live that far away, it's not like you can just jump in the car and drive to see them. Glad your neck is feeling better.

How did I miss the Pink Flamingos at the zoo! I want to pet one. Your grand children are so sweet Debby, and you can see how loved they are! Elizabeth

The poor Reindeer looks a bit unhealthy and unhappy.
Did you sprain your neck or sleep wrong? Get better.
Your family is just beautiful!!
