Went on down to the Audubon Zoo . . .

A few Tuesday's ago we took Dylan to the zoo. It was his first visit there and he loved it! We saw all the exhibits, rode the train and carousel over and over, and then finished off in the Cool Zoo. I love seeing him smile and watching his eyes light up. I love when he is happy!






look how pretty!


we got to touch the elephant!



I don't think he was suppose to go in there! lol

but he did!




wake up racoon!

Runaway!

It's been a while since I've posted and I have sooo much to catch you up on! So . . . I'll do a few small posts soon to catch up!

For those of you haven't heard the news . . . .  our oldest son ran away from home. We were devastated and searched everywhere, but no sign of him. Hopefully he is happy wherever he is and maybe just maybe he will make his way back home.

I'm talking about Turt . . . I hope none of you were thinking that Dylan ran away! lol. Turt has been part of our family since August 2008. Paulette, my boss at the time, found him around her home and gave him to me. He's been part of the family since. 

Check out this old posts about Turt:

We just recently moved into our new home and I set up his home in the backyard but forget to put the bricks down to hold it up. Needless to say, when we went to check on him, his home had fallen and he had escaped!  COME BACK HOME TURT! WE MISS YOU!
