Grandma & Booper go to the Zoo

This past weekend we fulfilled a long awaited commitment to my Mom and took her to the Zoo. As Friends of the Zoo we take Jackson to the Zoo about once a month. This time we made sure we timed it with Mom's visit. She knows how much Jackson loves animals and wanted to enjoy his appreciation first hand. Thankfully, Jackson was in wonderful form. I hold told him we wanted him to be Grandma's Tour guide, and he didn't disappoint.

The Kansas City Zoo is broken into sections of global geography and we went to "Africa," which is Jackson's favorite part. (This is where the lions are.)

We also caught the Sea Lion show, saw the White Tiger, hung out with the goats, and had a picnic. (Pictures are in the Photo Album.)
Underfortunately, the pony rides were shut down for the year otherwise we would have done that too. But honestly, we couldn't have picked a better weekend weather wise, it was simply beautiful.

It was nice to have Mom around for the weekend. With our busy lives we always seem to struggle to stay close to the ones we love.

Thank you Mom for coming and spending time with us and thank you for spoiling our son some more. Mom bought Jackson this sweatsuit, a pair of Thomas the Tank Engine shoes, and more trucks and cars. All were really great.
