Zoopendous weekend

A relaxing and fun weekend!! First I'll share some of Saturday's mail, our hearts melting as Valentines still arrive. We've also had some "Purr"fect cards from cats at catster.com.

On Sunday it was a brisk cool day; but the animals at the KC Zoo warmed our hearts. A trip to the KC Zoo brought back some fond memories from many trips to the Memphis Zoo. It was a place to escape while at St. Jude. Even Ally was ready for penguins and fountains; but settled for tigers and a polar bear. Her favorite animal; the flamingos. Mason's forever; the tiger. And Maverick's the zebra.

A smile as we entered the polar bear exhibit

Thumbs up for Coca-Cola and Tigers!!

Ally connected with all the animals

Maverick took this picture of a meerkat; dreaming of the other side.

This is the time where courage and strength kicks in. No one ever thinks about taking their own socks off, being able to pull their own covers up at night, or scooting out of your own bed. And the unknown that lies ahead. The courage and strength; Mason you will always be my hero. Your strength shows everyday as you tackle each new challenge and go above and beyond. You have the strength beyond what any human should ever endure.

“Never look ahead to the changes and challenges of this life in fear…Do not look ahead to what MAY happen tomorrow. The same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you His unwavering strength that you may bear it. Be at peace then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and worries.” Francis de Sales

I love Maverick's meerkat photo! So glad you all had a fun family day at the zoo. So sorry that Mason is suffering from more stuff related to his cancer. It totally breaks my heart. Thank goodness Mason has such a loving family to take good care of him. ♥
