He's 4-foot 1 & I'm 5-foot 1. We're friends.


Last weekend, we had the opportunity to keep our nephew Bryce. 

Chris has been very busy at work, and so Bryce and I had some good time together. 

Our big outing was going to the Memphis Zoo. It was my first trip, and man it was big. We didn't actually see the entire park because heat and exhaustion set in, but we still had a great time. 

Here are some of the highlights. 

This was the first thing we saw when we got there. Look how close that lion is! I'd never seen one that close before. 



Before we even got to this area, Bryce already knew exactly what they were. Meerkats!


Then he explained to me how they have lookouts who stand up to watch for danger. 


And there he was!


This was a fun exhibit, and we spent quite a bit of time watching these little guys. 


I even got a fun video of them swimming around.

We decided an ICEE was in order, and we continued on. What a good-looking guy!


The aquarium was very cool. There were some of the largest and smallest aquatic animals I had ever seen. 


 Check out that turtle! Sorry my settings were wrong, and it didn't get Bryce very well.


We had a great time, and next time he visits, we'll see what we missed.

  2. I can't believe Bryce is that old. It just can't be.
