It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Family Fun Goal: Visit a Zoo

A graduation took us to Texas to celebrate with family. We spent a few days making memories and even doing somethings on our Family Fun Goal list. My Grandparents and my Uncle were able to join us Saturday morning for a trip to the Zoo! That means that 4 generations of us completed this goal together!

4 Generations of hitting the zoo...in June...in Dallas...yes, insanity runs in the family.

Jo talked her Uncle R's ear off the entire day.

There were may great opportunities to have close encounters with the animals.

Jo is about 5 feet away while the keepers give a demonstration on how they safely check the health of the lions from the other side of a fence.

After we melted, I mean finished at the zoo, we headed to another Dallas institution: The Dairy-Ette.

It is an old-fashion drive-in but eating at the counter is especially cool!

They make their own root beer. We had to go in so we could have it in a frosty mug!

Not only do they make their own root beer...they make their own soft serve. HEAVEN after a hot day at the zoo!
