2015 Week Twenty-One | May 18 - May 24

The beginning of this week was spent celebrating my grandfather at his visitation and funeral, and the rest of the week flew by just as fast, as it was the last week of school. Memorial day weekend means the start of summer, and we celebrated by going to the zoo.
The night we returned from Grandpa's funeral, Annaliese snuggled with her pink princess zebra for bedtime. I'm not sure if she did this consciously or not, as Grandpa had won the zebra at BINGO and given it to her as a gift. 
Last day of second grade. How do I have a third grader already!

Our first day of summer vacation was rain filled, but that only lasted Saturday...
Sunday the weather was perfect for the zoo. First stop is ALWAYS the aquarium. Annaliese and this puffin were checking each other out. 
Checking out the sea stars, crab, urchins, and other sea dwellers in the touch tank. 

It was her idea to have Ian bury her at the fossil dig site. Luckily, it's not sand, but tiny rubber pellets that make clean up so much easier. 

Petting the goats at the big red barn. 

My two loves with my favorite zoo animal. He did this on his own. They love each other so much. Darrin and I are so blessed!
