A new zoo, and a trip home [Aug. 27th, 2007|11:55 pm]
On Saturday, Aunt Becky had to work, so Uncle Ben took us to the zoo. It wasn't quite as nice as the Columbus Zoo, but they did have giraffes, which are mom's favorite, and butterflies, which were mine. There was a Komodo Dragon that I was able to sit on, Uncle Ben even bought me a seed stick so that I could feed a bird, and we saw a spider that was nearly as big as my head.

Oh, and they also had hippos, which I was quite fascinated with, as well as a leopard who was right by the window, drawing quite a crowd. I thought I'd give mom a heart attack by wandering off on my own through the crowd. She and Uncle Ben found me quickly, though, and I recieved quite a scolding, which I suppose I deserved.

On Sunday, we visited the giant REI store in downtown Seattle after church, then Aunt Becky and Uncle Ben took us to eat at a wonderful restaurant right by where the ferry docked in Mukilteo. The children's menu was printed on the back of a mask: what a boon!!

Today, we travelled home and finally arrived back in Columbus -- exhausted but happy after our whirlwind journey.
