Fill Up Your Days & Thanksgiving Thursday

"Fill your days with love, laughter, exploration, learning and simply soaking it all in." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick's summer vacation has been filled with many fun adventures. I love memberships to wonderful places like the aquarium and the zoo. We love to pack our lunches and head to one of our favorite destinations to explore and simply have fun. On Sunday we spent the day at our local zoo. It was a beautiful day and we were able to catch a music show by Chris Rowlands, which I highly reccomend his music. He teaches children to love and care for the earth. We bought a couple of his CD's and have not stopped listening to them. Little Chick is in love with the Pygmy Marmosets! They really are the cutest little monkeys. We ended the day by meeting Grandma Hen and some friends at the lake and having dinner there. Of course we had to stop for some ice cream to complete the fantastic Sunday! We decided to head back to the zoo on Tuesday for lunch and ended up seeing another Chris Rowlands show. It was so much fun! Yeterday we spent the day at the aquarium (I took a break from taking pictures) and watched the wonderful IMAX movie, Born To Be Wild. Little Chick was so concerned about the elephants and the orangatangs. I really think we have a future environmental/animal protection hero in the making. I love filling our days with a whole bunch of love, plenty of giggles and spectacular adventures!
Little Chick loves to dance!
Fun at the carousel.
Golden Lion Tamarins
Of course we have to feed the goats.
Hello Prairie Dogs!

  4. What a great time Mama Hen! I definitely think you have a future veterinarian or environmental/animal advocate on your hands! Of course, Little Chick is taking right after her mommy. You both have so much love to share...XOXO. Thank you for the sweet messages on my blog!
