Spring Happenings

It was Spring here in Minneapolis for a few short days.
It is now back to rain/snow for a while and then hopefully it will warm up again.
We took advantage of the nice weather and went outside and did summery things a LOT.

One night we took a nice stroll in the 70 degree weather with Steve.
That was a lot of fun because it's normally just Carson and me (and the boy I babysit).
Carson dozed off for a snooze for a few minutes as we enjoyed the nice weather.
Afterwards, we took him to play on the playground that is literally directly behind our apartment.

This past Saturday we headed to the zoo near where we live.  We had heard rave reviews from all of our friends.  It is definitely perfect if you have kids.  It is pretty small and a good length for the little ones.  The only thing we didn't like was that all of the animals were still inside.  This made for a lot of traffic inside with the crowds of people and we didn't get to enjoy the weather as much as we wanted.

Our first stop was a conservatory that was so beautiful! We wished my mother-in-law, Arliss, could have seen it.  She would have loved it!

Our next stop was the zoo.  It was so fun because Carson actually liked looking at the animals! (if he could find them...) The orangutan exhibit was neat because a mother and her baby came right over to Carson and started playing in front of him.

That's all for now folks...until Spring meets us again.
