We stayed with my dear friend Jill, her husband Ben and their adorable daughter Avery, on Tuesday and Wednesday, and had a great time! On Wednesday we went to the Franklin Park Zoo with Jill and Avery...
Ostrich, Deysi, Anna
(Madre Rosario--esta es especialmente para usted!)
BIG lion--he roared a couple of times while we watched--amazing!
Deysi, Avery and Jill on the little bridge by the turtles
Can you see the snake, Avery?
Napping (Pygmy) Hippo
Gorillas were our favorite
(if you look really close you can see the brand new baby on mama's leg--so cute!!)
Closer shot of mama and baby
In one of the trains in the little park (since we have yet to meet a park we don't like!)
What zoo trip would be complete without ice cream? :)
(And, can you believe that Deysi's ice cream is a "kids size"??)
Let me help you buckle Pooh in, Avery
Checkin' out the window stickers
On Thursday, we drove north to Haverhill, where our former hogar volunteer Olivia is working at the L'Arche community here. We have had a great visit with her...
Taking a walk around the lake near her house...
Having yummy home made English Muffin pizza with Carole, the woman she lives and works with...
...and playing in the couple of inches of snow we got last night!
(Olivia, Deysi, giant snowball, Pat--another volunteer in the community)
While they played, I worked on a ghetto snowman. :)
Deysi humored me by having her picture taken with him.
Tomorrow we head down to Westport for some more visiting and adventures and then back up north on Sunday to get ready for our post-op on Wednesday.
