Robin at Around the Island hosts Summer Stock Sunday. Sharing my special morning with sweet little granddaughter, Mikah.
A pleasant summer day, Mikah and I enjoyed Thursday morning at the Memphis Zoo. Quite enlightening to take time to just "smell the roses" through the eyes of a child. Her 3 yr. old perspective always amazes and refreshes me!
Mikah was a bit leary of the standing too close to the flowers. There were a few bees.
The giant pandas were a must see. This one was taking a snooze while we visited him. What a rude host. Mikah doesn't seem to mind, though.
Always looking for a playground with "monkey hangers" -- or just old fashioned monkey bars -- is a challenge. Mikah loves them! She thought this single bar was almost a monkey hanger.
When asked her favorite part of our adventure, Mikah said she loved it when the sea lions splashed her. . . and splash her they did!
After walking to all corners of the zoo for 2 1/2 hours, Mikah quieried me, "Gramma, we are really walking long. Will we ever get back to your home?" In the parking lot she was sure, "Your car is hining (hiding) Gramma. Now I know we will never be able to get back to your home." So cute. We did find the car, of course, and we did find our way back home. In this photo she is resting her very tired little feet.
