We spent the week mostly talking - about books, school, books, music, books, writing, books, drama, books....and we crocheted a little...and she played guitar with Kenny a little...and we went to the movies!
We met about half-way, in Tyler, to pick her up and spent the afternoon at Caldwell Zoo with my brother Kenny, LaLa, and Sheesa and Nui.
LaLa and Mira spent most of the day like this.
Love this girl!
In the elephant foot print.
We did this last time we visited this zoo (March 2010).
She really enjoyed watching the penguins, and they enjoyed watching her, too!
Surprisingly, she was super-excited to feed the birds. What a difference from last year's bird experience!
Amongst other things, we spent some time at the park while LaLa was here.
Mira successfully flying her kite.
LaLa and I - repeatedly unsuccessful at flying ours.
Ummm, Daddy - this is stupid.
We also visited Chimp Haven for a little while which was pretty cool.
Brody and Mira had fun playing together (not really caring anything about the Chimpanzees).
We saw our first nutria!
Painting a banner for the Chimps!
And, LaLa and I went to Painting with a Twist to paint "Funky Blues" - what fun!
We had a lot of fun this week! So glad to have LaLa with us. Mira was pretty upset about dropping her off the following Sunday. Luckily, we only had to wait a week before we saw everybody again!
