Blooming Delights

 When: Saturday, April 30

Saturday was finally a somewhat nice day. Louie, the elephant from the local zoo, turned 8 years old this week so I packed the kids up for a day of animal fun for his birthday. We only had to travel 30 minutes south to arrive at the festivities, but it was like walking into another season entirely. Not only were all of the spring flowers out to greet us but the trees actually had leaves and blooms on them. It was so fantastic to be in the presence of Spring! I took the opportunity to snap a photo shoot while we were there. It was so nice to have fauna on the trees instead of all the pictures I have of skeletal naked branches. Now, if only Spring would reach it's arms 30 minutes north to bring it's beauty to us.
