After we returned from San Diego we were visited by dear friends from Illinois.
Lauren and I go back to our seminary days. She's been through the worst of the worst with me while eating spinach artichoke dip and attempting to read sewing patterns.
These two did field work together in Corunna. On Wednesday evenings we'd get together after church and debrief about the evening.
The elephants are always a favorite exhibit especially since it was redone. I can't believe this little girl is 6.
We found shelter in the Tropical Discovery exhibit and decided to see what the Komodo dragons were up to.
As the storm cleared out, so did we, but we stopped to check out the tiger before we left. He was pacing back and forth. That must be what he does in his free time.
We headed home to celebrate with ice cream cupcakes!
Happy birthday to this sweet, dainty little girl! We love you, Elizabeth.
