Anyways after some debate we decided that since the weather was sunny (not warm at all) we'd trek down the Valley to the Greater Vancouver Zoo (located in Aldergrove...go figure). I don't remember being there before although I hear I've been and it's been years for Corey. Even if we both could remember our previous trip this would have topped them all, seeing the zoo and the animals through Bethany's eyes gives you a great deal of perspective.
Talk about having your head up someone's ass*....
The last photo is in front of a different donkey cage. Off all the cool and interesting animals we saw yesterday Bethany was in love with the donkeys. She'd have stayed at their pen all day if we let her. She was even unimpressed by the sheer greatness of the Giraffe. We climbed up the platform to stand at giraffe head height and all she could say was "No Mommy", "Go Mommy".
It was a truely wonderful day, and exactly what the doctor ordered. It's amazing how those precious moments with your family put everything else into perspective.
*Sorry, I really couldn't resist.
