A fun day, and series continuation

Yesterday we were lucky enough to tag along on the first zoo trip with our grandson.  We spent a few hours enjoying the small Elmvale Zoo, which is the perfect size for a little boy who is just discovering the world.  It was perfect size for parents and grandparents too!

We had a great day, and plans are made for a return trip next summer.

Today the quote is from Sam Levenson.... "The simplest toy, one which even the youngest child can operate, is called a grandparent"

What fun going on a little zoo excursion with your grandson. It must be lovely to witness your grandson's view of the world through new eyes. More lovely pages of your journal. I am in awe of it!!

Hello Mary Anne! I have been away for a few days so am just catching up!! So glad that you had a great visit to the zoo with your family.... seeing the zoo again through the eyes of a child is always special!! Love your journals too and all your new additions to your Autumn crazy quilt cushion!! Christine x

Great post and totally appropriate quote today! I miss the time when our grands were young. Even though they are 18 and 20 and we still have fun and laugh a lot, those moments when they were tots and the time we shared then are treasured. Let me tell you, video was a fantastic invention!
xx, Carol

How fun for you, cute grandson! I still like to go to the zoo, animals, kids, families and a great walk, what's not to like about that?
Your journal is like a mixed media crazy quilt, lovely.
