Tuesday it was a beautiful fall day here. Tuesday is also Brad's usual "day off", so we decided to head to the zoo. We had such a great day! I know the quality of these photos is awful...we decided to take our little point and shoot camera rather than our good camera...but you can still tell we had a lot of fun. Anika LOVES animals. Her favorites were the elephants (just like her favorite stuffed elephant "Ellie" she has at home), and the giraffes. She was completely mesmerized, and it was hard to draw her attention away from them to take some photos. :) She also loved playing some of the drums in the Africa exhibit. It was a much needed day off and it was great to "re-group" as a family and spend the day together after the busyness of the last few weeks. Only one more month until we celebrate a first birthday! Can't believe it!
