Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!






Saturday morning found us rising at 4:30 a.m. to get ready to leave for our zoo trip. We had been wanting to have this adventure for a long time and decided that this was the day to make it happen. We drove to West Palm to catch the Tri-rail train. This train took us to yet another train, which took us to a bus, which took us to the Miami Metro Zoo. We spent a lot of time in transit, but we made great memories. Doyle thought that I should feel privileged to see both the sunrise and sunset by train. I'm not sure "privileged" is the word that came to my mind. When the kids woke up in the morning, they put the clothes on that we had laid out for them. Lydia made us laugh by putting on her hat and sunglasses. I mentioned that she could wait until the sun came up to use the glasses. I have to mention that everything we were going to use for the day had to fit in a backpack. For those that know my packing style, you know that this is a great accomplishment for me. I was quite proud of myself. We had so much fun being together. Although I took about 200 pictures, I will show you only a few of our memories.

We need to make another zoo trip soon, but I think we'll drive ourselves. I have no interest in seeing the sunrise and set from a train. Glad you had fun!

Sherilyn,

I AM impressed that you got all your needed items in a bckpack. I remember when you and I were voted as having heaviest luggage on the band tour at GBS. Remember the little old man in Florida trying to carry yours and mine at the same time? Glad your family had a nice time at the zoo. More memories to tuck away.....
