Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Zoo Day

We woke up yesterday, saw the beautiful weather outside, and decided it was a perfect day to go to the zoo!  Woo-hoo!  I love zoo trips!  

Cadence loves to pose for the camera, so I got plenty of pictures of her.  Don't you like her zoo outfit?  She put it all together herself.  

Finn wanted to wear matching hats with daddy.  Finn wanted to see sheep and Cadence really wanted to ride the train (which we did at the end).  

As soon as we pulled into the zoo parking lot Cadence said, "Grandpa used to take me to the zoo."  She misses her Grandpa dates.  We ate our lunch by the seals, my favorite.  They were poking their heads in and out of the water for us while we enjoyed our packed lunches.  Finn was great at making all the animal sounds for us.  He's got a talent!  

Aria was content to stroll around and look at everything, so I'll take that as a sign that she liked it.  We are looking forward to several more trips to the zoo this summer, hopefully meeting up with friends and cousins.

Going To The Zoo

Words and Music by Tom Paxton

Daddy's taking us to the zoo tomorrow, 
Zoo tomorrow, zoo tomorrow; 
Daddy's taking us to the zoo tomorrow, 
We can stay all day.

We're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo;
How about you, you, you?
You can come too, too, too.
We're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo.

See the elephant with the long trunk swingin',
Great big ears and long trunk swingin',
Snuffin' up peanuts with the long trunk swingin';
We can stay all day.


See all the monkeys scritch scritch scratchin',
Jumpin' all around and scritch scritch scratchin',
Hangin' by their long tails scritch scritch scratchin';
We can stay all day.


Big black bear, all a huff huff a-puffin';
Coat's too heavy, he's huff huff a-puffin',
Don't get too near the huff huff a-puffin',
Or you won't stay all day.


Seals in the pool all honk honk honkin',
Catchin' fish and honk honk honkin',
Little seals honk honk honkin'; (high pitched voice)
We can stay all day.


(Slower tempo)
We stayed all day and we're gettin' sleepy,
Sittin' in the car gettin' sleep sleep sleepy,
Home already and we're sleep sleep sleepy,
We have stayed all day.

[Cho: (alternate)]
We've been to the zoo, zoo, zoo;
So have you, you, you.
You came too, too, too,
We're been to the zoo, zoo, zoo.

Momma's taking us to the zoo tomorrow,
Zoo tomorrow, zoo tomorrow;
Momma's taking us to the zoo tomorrow,
We can stay all day.
