Our day!

.....Just to let you know, nothing in this journal's entry is toward anyone in specific, I use it to write my feelings, and about my illnesess, and in hopes it might help someone else as I do.I do not pretend nor imatate to be someone I'm not. And if you might take an entry wrong and feel that it is about you, I'm sorry but It isn't, it just may seem to coincide with your own life. And if there is something in what I write that "offends" you, options; don't read, or realize that this IS real life, and get out of your plastic bubble and learn more about it! God bless you!......

Good afternoon! I hope that all of you are feeling well! :o)

Yesterday was a blast! :o) So much fun with family! :o) I got up early and was ready on time for once! lol
We rode down to the zoo with my daughter and her boy friend. We forgot that this weekend was also the Air there was a lot of traffic towards the air port. After that...smooth sailing al the way there! :o) We stoped off for breakfast and was back on the raod again! :o)
Dh and I were sitting in the back seat with our grandson! lol He's so funny! He loves to go to the zoo and see the elephants! His 2 favorite things are the moon and elephants....well, drums too! LOL :o)
He was stubborn and didn't take a nap on the way. But he entertained us on the way! lol :o)

Once we got there...dh got me a motorized cart. Whew! Mine wouldn't fit in the car so I had to take my wheel chair. I wouldn't have made it with that because of all the hills.
The weather was great and it was an overcast all day and the temps. were in the 70's! Perfect for me! :o) I did get hot, but not nearly what I would have if it were in the 80's and very thankful for that! :o)
The first thing we went to see were the elephants! :o) My husband has never been to a for me it was neat to watch him with our grandson! :o) He had a bit of troubles breathing because of all the hay...he has asthma. He didn't tell me this until last night. He was better after awhile here at home with his inhaler.
After around lunch time, the zoo got pretty crowded! By that time we had already been through the better part of it. :o)
By the time we had seen all the animals...and went through the gift shop to get our grandson an was around 2:30! :o) So...we went down town Cincy and I took a few pictures of the stadium. :o) Then we drove into Kentucky! :o) My daughter said that since I was out of the house, she wanted to get me out of state too! LOL :o) It was nice and I enjoyed the ride! :o)
When we got home, we had dinner and relaxed! :o) Even though I didn't do much walking, my legs and ankles were swollen and tired. I had to get them proped up.
I took over 100 pictures on my digital and a roll of film! lol I'll get the hard copies tomorrow! :o) This is another event that will stay in my memories! :o) The best! :o)
I put some pictures on Rockyou...I hope they turned out this time! :o)
I really need to go and rest now, I was so backed up on my alerts! :o) I hope that all of you have a great day and God's blessings to all of you! :o)

I love taking grandkids to the zoo, and used to go quite regularly.  But it is exhausting.  I am looking forward to the pics you took!  Gerry
