What we did this summer

Now that school has started for me, I look back and realize that I haven’t posted that much for the past summer.  Because I just spent the afternoon reading essays, I thought that instead of writing that I’d share a few pictures that perhaps sum up what we’ve been doing.

One of the big excursions was to the zoo in Kansas City.  Miss K and I rode a camel:

She also got to be “up close and personal” with the lions:

and communed with the elephants:

She also got to feed some deer and pet some sheep:

We also got to spend a little over a week at the lake.  We had fun just hanging out and relaxing:

We also ate—and had fun fixing dinner together:

We also had a great time playing in the lake—but I’ll save that for a separate post!

Happy Back to School, everybody!

Looks like you had a fun Summer! Is that lion pose real?

thank you! Yes, the lion pose is real--there was a thick piece of glass between them, but you can't see it in the picture. It was just amazing that the lioness was so close to us.
