My oldest son, Patrick, my daughter in law, Julie, and granddaughter, Abigail come for a visit. They arrived on Sunday evening and left early this AM. We had a grand time while they were here....wearing ourselves and Abigail out. ;)
Monday was our trip to Madison's Henry Vilas Zoo (http://www.vilaszoo.org) where we 1) saw many of the animals (those that were out during the day's heat), 2) rode the carousal, 3) wore ourselves out. ;)
The day was bright and sunny.....a nice, cool morning, but as the day progress, it got warmer. Abigail, Julie, Patrick, and me.....Grandpa Don was, as ever, the main photographer. ;) I did manage to get some photos of him though, too. :)
As shown here with Abigail. I believe they were looking at the camels, although the giraffes were there in the shade, too.......
Which brings me to my next photo. I "believe" this is father and son. Sad to say, but Mother Giraffe passed away a year or so ago.
I don't believe anyone goes to the Henry Vilas Zoo without getting their photo taken on the bronze Tortoise!
My turn to lift up and give Abigail a better view.......
Pointing out the Flamingo's!
Next stop is the carousel! Abigail rides with Mom Julie, while I stand nearby.
Patrick found a Puffin (thanks for the correction Ms. Molly Bee!) that needed a rider......
And Grandpa Don found a caterpillar! He sat backwards so that he could take more photos. ;)
Tomorrow......more from our visit at the Henry Vilas Zoo.
