Caution... lots of pictures ahead!

Saturday we went to one of my favorite places in the Twin Cities. The Conservatory at the Como Zoo. It was in fact a zoo! There were a ton of people there. Here are a variety of pictures from our trip. We also wandered around the park grounds.

















The weather was beautiful even though it was a bit breezy. Sunday was a nice day too. The temperature reached 49˚. Still a bit breezy but warm enough to go for a nice walk! I created a playlist and put it on Morgan's iPod so I could listen to some music while I walked. I don't usually do this but it was a nice change.

Maureen posed this challenge for today: What do you desire? (list everything)

Wow! What a can of worms Maureen! I really want spring to finally SPRING! And I'd like a set of Basic Grey journal block stamps. I have a pretty happy life so the things I desire are rather trivial and materialistic. I'd like children not to suffer abuse, neglect, starvation, illness and disease. I would like everyone to have enough food to eat, clothes to wear and a home to live comfortably in. I'd like war to stop and for everyone to just hug it out.

WOW! These pictures were simply stunning! I thought I was looking at some nature magazine! The colours of the flowers are so vivid and incredibly sharp!
Love the shot of O and Morgan looking over the rocks towards the water and the one with them from the back. It's so sweet to see him stand so little beside his daddy, very tender shot.
