This past week my oldest son was promoted to Captain. There are just no words to express how excited and proud we were of him.
He was so thoughtful as he thanked everyone and brought roses for his beautiful bride, his two little princesses and even for me. Talk about melting a mom’s heart!
Then it was off to the Zoo to celebrate the day and enjoy the spectacular spring weather.
To my surprise while we were walking around I spotted the cutest little monkeys climbing around in the huge live oaks.
Yes…I’ve never seen any cuter monkeys in my life!
After a long walk we stopped to watch the giraffe’s feeding. Then my son wanted to watch the alligator's having lunch.
That steak was a little bit under cooked for my taste, and I was a bit nervous seeing how close that zoo attendant was getting to those gators.
And then one of them got loose and we asked Karli if she wanted to feed him! Notice how valiantly my wonderful husband held his mouth open!
The kids were officially worn out after that event, so we strolled off to see the otters at play.
My sweet daughter in love took this picture of my son, Kayla and me. Here sits one proud momma!
On the way out of the Zoo Karli was thrilled to see this peacock.
After chasing him around for a little while, he finally stopped to show us this amazing display of beauty! Truly this is the handy work of God.
