Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

Feeling better at the zoo!

Prairie Dogs,


and Monkeys, oh my!

....And Claire preparing to hide from the animals!

We were able to get Claire into an urgent care facility first thing this morning and get her on stronger antibiotics. She is feeling much better this evening!

Since the weather was nice again and we knew that the zoo was free, we decided to stroll around it with the kids this afternoon. Claire still wasn't quite herself but she loves to stroll. She does not love animals though, so she would get very upset if I took her out of the stroller for a better look and cover her face with her blanket when she saw any animals from the stroller! This girl has real issues with animals! However, we found that she did like to look at the penguins and puffins! The exhibit was indoors and freezing cold but she let Paul get her out of the stroller to look at them!

The penguins that Claire loves...okay, tolerates!

By-the-way, the St. Louis zoo is very nice...lots of beautiful plants and flowers, nice exhibits and a variety of animals! The kids have never seen kangaroos, wallabies, takins, sun bears, or prairie dogs! They really enjoyed the new animals.

This is the Giant Sugar Daddy that the kids found at Cracker Barrel. We do not usually buy the kids candy or junk food, but when we are on vacation we will occasionally and I could not resist this treat! I just think it is hilarious!

I'm so glad to hear that Claire is doing better on those stronger antibiotics. We will be bringing our daughter home in just over 1 month and we are not sure what her medical needs will require. Thank you for sharing your journey in getting the care that Claire is needing. I'm learning alot!
