You can kiss your family good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world, but a world lives in you.

Fun at the Zoo

Is there such a thing as "Backblogging"? The Jacksons have been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to keep up with all of our fun. On the 23rd of October Bo and I took Asher, Ava and Kelsey to the zoo for the day. Unfortunately Ally was at school and missed our fun day. The weather was a bit chilly, but that didn't stop us from having a great time. We got to see all the animals we know and love...the giraffes, the monkeys, the kangaroos, the reptile house, and the Panda bears. The baby was on closed circuit TV with mom, Lun Lun, so we didn't get to see them "live", but it was still cute. Yang Yang and Mei Lan were taking a mid-morning nap and cared nothing about the hoarding crowd who came to see them. Our favorite parts were the train ride around the kids section, riding the carousel, playing at the playground and the petting zoo. Kelsey loved chasing all the goats around. We tried to pet one that was eating and he butted his head at her to get away from his food. After another attempt to be nice and another head butting, Kelsey's feelings were hurt and we found another goat to play with. Thankfully I was there to yank her back...I think he might have nailed her had I not grabbed her out of the way. At the end of the morning, we piled in to the back of the car, ate some lunch and headed home for nice, long naps. It was a great time for all of us!!
