DO THE ZOO!

This past week the kids were off of school for election day.

We thought since the weather was so beautiful we’d go and spend the day at the Zoo.

When when we got there, we were surprised to find that we and all the animals basically had the zoo to ourselves.  Turned out to be a pretty good idea after all.

The kids enjoyed seeing all the animals because they were out enjoying the fall weather just like we were.

And spent lots of time running, skipping and hopping all over.

Of course, I took advantage of all the natural beauty around us for a few special photo shots.

Oh my…the kids were just so precious! And as you can see, the Flamingos decided to wear pink as well.

And Cole loved wearing his safari hat, as he was on the lookout for some tigers. LSU Tigers…of course!

My sweet Grace is getting so tall, and so “lady like” these days.

Grace and Kayla are not only cousins, but are best buddies as well, and just love hanging out together.

So here’s to some great memories on such a perfect fall day!

Finally I’d like to honor all of our Veterans for their amazing courage and service to our country today!

Glad you made the most of the day off!
Praying right now!
Psalms 91:1-2, 4 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. (4) He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Praying in Seattle!
Psalms 91:14-15 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

Oh the comfort of knowing that this life isn't all there is! Whatever happens, look to the Lord and His free gift of salvation! Praying hard!
John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Traditional [URL=http://www.nfoutletonline.net/#1151]north face outlet store[/URL] is similar one particular another in addition as more than staffed. People who wear [URL=http://www.nfoutletonline.net/#1014]north face outlet locations[/URL] just like walking package. But at that time, people have to put on top of all the ordinary model. In 1998, Eral made new fashion to solve this marketing issue. So Eral may be the ideal selection for female friends.

No Christmas photos?
Still here praying hard!
Psalms 40:1-4a I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust...
