Did I tell you we love the zoo, i really can't explain it other than to say we sit with gorillas and monkeys for over an hour. The colors thrill us, the sights and sounds mesmerize us and to share a day at the zoo with my children means the world to me. Today we share the zoo with Alex' girlfriend, bless her heart she has never been to the zoo. She's had a "deprived childhood" according to Emily. For us, the perfect day is a day spent in the zoo or on the beach.
This stage of life I'm in, this empty nest phase... by far it is my least favorite and the toughest part of life up to this point...I see more zoo days ahead in the near future.
