The sunrise was beautiful this morning. I know why people move to the desert. I feel good all of the time. Yesterday was our zoo day. The kids were troopers and it was very nice. The kids favorite part was the little train that goes around the park.
I was riding with the older two and Ron the three younger. I don’t know how that worked out that way.
This is a tiny local zoo, it had one monkey, one alligator, it did have two bears, and two tigers. It was not like zoos in California. Just an aside, but being here is like really nice and free. I am struck all the time at how, like the frog being boiled to death slowly, California has become so restrictive and Socialist.
I am glad the two oldest have decided to leave.
Here is the gang. We had already been walking for two hours so they were happy to sit down for awhile. After the zoo we went out to lunch. Mom was missing her kids and the kids were getting homesick for normal life. We took them home and picked them up at bedtime. Ron read them My Father’s Dragon. It is so nice to see five more kids the next generation piled on Grandpa like it was a long time ago.
Today will just be hikes on the hiking trails.
I hope your day will be lovely.
