SPRING Break!


This week found me making early morning drives...


To gather a herd of Little Loves...


For a few adventures including a visit to Caldwell Zoo...


So many years I've taken Loves to this great little zoo... 

It was free when I took Amanda and Zack... beginning almost four decades ago... what a wonderful blessing to young families by the Caldwell family back then.  When the older Caldwells passed away, the younger generation started charging for admission.  Though it's still a great place to visit, every time I go, I remember all the years I could bring my children for free.  It is truly amazing that the senior Caldwells made such a GIFT to their community of this zoo.  I was very thankful then and I still am.


Caldwell Zoo always makes for a fun family outing...  Our Littles LOVE following their MAPS and checking off all the animals, birds and reptiles.


I don't think we've ever passed this spot without needing a photo!  It's just beyond a beautiful pair of white tigers.  The day was sunny and cool, so almost all the animals were stretched out sunning themselves.  Not much activity!  Just napping.  Ha!  This Noni was ready for a nap when the day was done!


I'm running behind on my blog visiting... I promise to catch up soon!  I'm "making hay while I can" as the old farmers say!  Hope all of you are having a wonderful SPRING break!!

Looks like you all had a great time. :) That was truly a special gift that family gave to everyone. Glad it's still open, seems like most things that fall into younger hands these days gets run into the ground and then closed. Wishing you a lovely day sweet friend. ((hugs))

Blogs will always be there later.

Looks like it was a great day! My NY boy has been on spring break this past week but Colorado boy has his this week coming up.

So heart warming to hear about the senior Caldwell's contribution to your community. How nice to enjoy the second generation of family being able to visit and enjoy.
Glad you are enjoying family on spring break. We are keeping our granddaughter whose spring break is different from her brother's. My daughter and the rest of the family went on a skiing trip to Colorado. She grew up snow skiing on many spring breaks while we lived in Alaska as did her husband who grew up in Germany. When we moved back home we were close to the beach but did not want our teenagers in that wild atmosphere for spring break.
Always good to hear from you. Have a good week. You have a special family.

I used to love going to the zoo as a girl, still do :-) And what a lovely group of people you had visiting with you. I enjoyed their happy smiles and hope they got ice cream at the end, I always did.
