Brittany came to visit us during her spring break. We didn’t do too many exciting things, but we did go to the zoo in Montgomery. It was loads of fun. Brittany has a GPS, so even though we were driving through Alabama, we didn’t get lost. It was a miracle! 🙂 Ha!  We did forget about the time difference though – so we stopped for brunch at Cracker Barrel before we hit the zoo.

It was a perfect day for the zoo. Sunny and warm, but not too hot. Both of the girls had a blast. Adelaide loves animals, but Vivienne surprised me with how excited she got about them. She has absolutely no fear of animals, and the zoo animals are no exception. I think she would have climbed in to play with them if we let her.

Adelaide was thrilled about the train ride. The train went all over the zoo. We all had a blast. Notice Adelaide is holding a giraffe shaped water bottle. She saw another child with one of these and begged for one. Of course, since Aunt B was there and going to the zoo is a special occasion, she got one.

Here is Adelaide standing like a flamingo. She cracks me up! Now I am ready to plan another zoo trip. Who’s in?

By the way, I have been meaning to post these for awhile. Adelaide has become really interested in drawing faces. They are so interesting to me. Usually they do not look very happy (though she claims they are smiling, so I think that is just a matter of hand control). Anyway, check these out:

My absolute favorite is her portraits. She picks somebody to draw – mostly family members. She adds so many details.

Here is PaBoo (my dad) – notice the beard and the legs and shoes she drew in the lower left-hand corner.And here is Uncle Nathan. Also sporting a beard. So cute!! I hope you can see these clearly enough. I need to scan them whenever I get a free minute (Ha!).
