Another Day at the Zoo

Friday I had plans to have lunch with some friends after Josh got out of school. I had been looking forward to this for a while. Then Friday morning Joshua wakes up with a sore throat. Lunch date broken.
Josh has had no other symptoms but he sore throat still persists. So rather than spend a beautiful day inside we took advantage of our zoo membership. It turned out to be a great day!

They let their peacocks roam and this one has put on a little show for us several times now. The boys love it!

This day we were there in time to watch them feed the elephants. It was neat for the boys to see them picking up the apples and oranges to eat them.

Josh's highlight, though, was the water fountains that were on this time.

Joshua and Jeremiah are very different boys. They approach so many things differently. For example, water. Joshua will jump in whole hog without any concern about whether he will end up soaked or not. He has fun with it then worries about asking questions later.

Jeremiah, on the other hand, is very skeptical about things that aren't in his control. The fountains... not his thing.

He likes things within his control. Ask questions before... and then maybe have some fun after we know it can be trusted.
So... in review...

Jeremiah: safe.

Joshua: wet.

They both have positives and negatives. Hopefully they will learn how to handle these traits of theirs as they get older and use them to their benefit.

Alright I have no real reason for sharing this particular picture other than the fact that I really love the picture. Snakes really creep me out but there's something really neat about them... when they're behind glass... in a place where they could never possibly reach me or hurt me. It's amazing to see Gods' beauty even in the dangerous things.
