Quit playing tricks!

I took Liam to the zoo last Monday. He had just eaten scrambled eggs. When he saw this snake, he had no idea what it was because he has no frame of reference. He ran right to the eggs, and asked, "What dat?"  I said, "Those are eggs."
He said, "YUM!" and tired to pick them up, but of course they were part of the sculpture.
 
 Liam is an elephant lover, so imagine his delight when he saw this mama and baby eating.
He was very interested when the elephant swung at the container hanging in the tree. He laughed out loud when she used her trunk to knock unshelled peanuts onto the ground. Then she ate them. What a sight to behold.

I took him to the mall playground recently and put three quarters in a mechanical car. He screamed, terrified, and refused to ride. I thought he might be afraid of the zoo merry-go-round. He was so thrilled when that tiger took him around and around and moved up and down. I stood next to him and held him. I growled at him and told him the tiger was going to bite his arm. When I nibbled, he cackled. And to think, we have another Monday together. I am so blessed to be able to spend time with my great-grandson.

Come back later in the week to see where  Bill and I went last weekend. He said it was a young man's delight and an old man's fright. I assure you, you will enjoy the next post and photos. Locals will remember the horrific event related to this particular area in Missouri. Do come back.

Well, THAT gave me a start! Liam in the cobra coils! He looks so grown up, in his jeans and boots and little jacket.

I forgot to mention how cute Liam is. Is he the elephant whisperer? The snake charmer?

(Did you get my email about Tuesday?)
