Heritage Zoo

Craig and I have lived in the Prescott area three years this week. We have had some amazing wonderful, funny, interesting, hard, and eventful times here. There are many things I HATE about this place I call home. I hate the snakes, lizards, lack of grass and being so far from my family! On the other hand, there are many things I LOVE. I love the mild weather all year round, the down to earth people I have gotten to know and love, the small town feel. I love how Prescott has so many different looks... the huge ponderosa pine forrest, the Granite Dells, 5 lakes and yes, even the prairie land! We have been so blessed in Prescott and I'm so lucky to live here! (Although I'll always be a Utah girl!!!)

Yesterday we went to the Heritage Zoo and it was an unexpected surprise. Craig had meetings and presentations in the morning but the afternoon he had off. So I thought it would be fun to take Brielle to the zoo after all it's 10 minutes away, and after 3 years of living here we have never been. It ended up being one of the best days! No one was there! The weather was perfect and because its such a small zoo the animals are literally within arms reach! However, what made it an unforgettable day was Brielle! She was totally absorbing everything! She would wave to all the animals "Hiiiiii deeeaarr", "Hiiiii biiiirdddeee". She was loving it! It really is so fun to experience new things with her. I just had the best day spending it with the people I love the most!

I love the picture of Brielle in the swing. That is one of the things I love about being a mom is seeing your kids experiance things for the first time. Sometimes I feel like as an adult you forget why the zoo and some holidays are fun. Than you have kids and it makes you young again and remember how to have good old fun.
