Walker's Date with Say Say!

dressed and ready for Say Say
We are blessed to live in the same city with all of our siblings, nieces and nephews.  Our children have good relationships with all of them, and get to see them all somewhat frequently.  However, Sara has a special place in our heart because she has traveled with our family and babysits the kids often, which has allowed her to forge a special bond with them.  They love her, and can feel her love back.  This past week Sara asked if she could spend some time with Walker before he returned to school, and she went back to work.  Sara decided to take him to the zoo, and he was so excited!  He spoke about it for several days beforehand, and was dressed and ready to go the morning of their date.

I caught him standing at the front door at 8am, looking out the window awaiting her arrival.  When she finally pulled into the driveway, he ran out to greet her.  I thought that they would just hang at the zoo for a couple of hours, but she went above and beyond!  They saw all of the animals, and did everything....from riding the train, the carousel, feeding the giraffes, eating lunch there AND playing in the splash pad!  To say that Walker had a blast is an understatement.  He is still talking about it, and I know he loved having her all to himself.
he was brave until he got up close

"the snake is this big"

pure joy!
What a wonderful way to spend his last day of summer break!  We all love you Sara, but Walker's face in the last picture sums up his feelings for you!  Thank you for spending so much time with him...he was worn out!
