Animal Crackers in Our Soup

Ahhh, the bliss of little girls. One would think that would include baby dolls and fairy wings (and some days it does) but, for the most part our little ladybugs are full-fledged animal activists! These little lovelies would trade the finest tea party for a romp in the zoo or a swim in the shark tank (okay, not really IN the shark tank) but you get the picture. So, every summer, they look forward to their trips to the wild beyond. We went to the aquarium as our little family of four, skipping the ferry ride due to nasty thunderstorms. It turned out to be a wonderful day, despite the downpours.
















My girlfriend, Trini had never been to a natural habitat located not so far from home. Trini and her daughter, Olivia were game for our outing to the game preserve. Sometimes, we go two or three times a year - it is a zoo with a beautiful park and magnificent lunch area. The zoo was making lots of changes, so the animals were sparse this time, but the good times were plenty.

I love the aquarium trip...and those themed matching shirts...too cute!! We are planning a trip there in October....we want to take the River Line down as Lia is dying to ride a train...we'll see!

Your girls sure DO look happy surrounded by nature and animals!!! I LOVE that about them...and, well, if given the chance to swim IN the shark tank...these two daring gals look like just the ones who might volunteer!! :-)

I love the pictures of their sisterly love...Their love for animals and nature is obviously part of the compassion and kindness you've taught and modeled for them.

So sweet inside and out...

Ok, where do you find all of their matching, adorable and always perfect outfits for every occassion? Gosh could they be any cuter? I love how they are such opposites and yet share such a beautiful sisterly bond!

Miss you and thanks for asking about Gabriel. No news probably until October when his court date is supposedly scheduled. We hold you all in our prayers as well!

We love the aquarium and zoo too! Our kids truly can't get enough of the great outdoors!

Love and blessings,
Jill
