More snow

We had more white stuff again.

This should be the last of it, we hope.

Trains, Carousel, and the Zoo

Last night, we ate at a nice restaurant that delivers food by train.

He had lots of fun there. After that, we went and rode the Carousel again.

He got on the same dolphin as last time.

Today, we went to the zoo. First thing you see is their new polar bear habitat.

The tank they set up lets you get very close to the bear.

How close?

Very close, actually.

This one was closer and much safer.

We also got to see some llamas. Elijah wasn't too certain about those.

Ring tailed lemurs.

I don't care, it's funny to me.
They had a whole meerkat habitat set up.

There was a window up close to watch them run around.

Lovely plumage, isn't it?

The tigers were eating when we came through. I think he wanted to get us, too.

We also got up close to the kangaroos. There's no fence around them, and I have no idea if they stay where they are supposed to stay.

These are tree kangaroos. I've never heard of them.

They sure made him laugh, though.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree.

That's it for now. We plan to go back once they open up the Africa section.

We were stuck inside for several days due to snow, so we didn't get much done.
Once the roads were clear, we went and found a carousel nearby.

We had more snow after that. Once that snow also started to melt, we were able to get out again.

We got to go to a Valentine's banquet at church, and he got to make some crafts.

Without prompting, he decided to play "Hide and Seek". He turns his head to the wall, says what I think are numbers, then says something very close to "Ready or not, here I come".

Celebration of his birth

We wanted to have fun for his birthday, so we went to a cabin for the weekend.

There was a large bear to play with.

He also got a chance to play with his cousin.

There's that bear again.

It might become a running gag.

We also had a chance to see his other cousin, who's still too little to play.

We went to get another bear, because he obviously doesn't have enough of them. The one we got was a more manageable size.

He and his cousin ran around for a long time, until they both couldn't handle any more.
