We are enjoying every summer experience we can pack in to this week! Yesterday we met Meadow and her family to go swimming in an outdoor pool. It was a little windy and overcast so it was a short swim - with chattering teeth near the end!
Today Helayna and I went to the Valley Zoo. Once you've visited the world famous Calgary Zoo, this one is just a little operation but we found things to occupy us for a few hours.
She was amazed that it looked like a castle. As we were leaving, she wanted to close the big doors and lock the castle!
I remember this Humpty Dumpty statue from the time when our kids were little. Helayna thought he was pretty cool - and a bit overwhelming at first.
The train ride was a definite hit! We rode in the giraffe car.
And the picnic area had a wooden train set up as tables - which was almost as good as the real train for this two year old!
Then there was the merry-go-round. She was so brave and not the least bit afraid as her horse went up and down, around and around.
Her only question about animals was "Is there an elephant?" And she was delighted and very surprised to hear that the elephant's name was Lucy - just like one of her friends! We had a great afternoon together - not too busy, not too crazy, just a whole bunch of exploring.
