For Mother’s Day last weekend we spent a glorious day at the Denver Zoo. The weather was perfect and we spent it with family. Both my mother (Satori’s Grammy) and my Aunt Elizabeth were in town, so our whole family and our out-of-town visitors as well as cousins Peyton, Brady, and Beckett enjoyed the day.

Props go out to Aunt Elizabeth who gave the girls these cute, colorful umbrellas! Handy against the searing Colorado sun.

The twins check out the lioness. The lion with his big mane was in front of the other window.

Off in the distance we saw African Wild Dogs running around.

David maneuvered the twin’s stroller. Here he is posing with my Mom.

Satori and Peyton were inseparable as usual.

I didn’t take many actual zoo animal photos, I did not bring my heavy telephoto lens. I couldn’t resist this baby orangutan and his mother.

It was so cute to see the mom pick up the baby by his arm and just fling him on top of her head!

Shortly after entering the zoo, we also witnessed a mother Bighorn Sheep preparing to give birth to her baby, and by the time we were leaving the zoo, she had just given birth.

It is extremely challenging to get all the children to look at the camera.

We only saw half the zoo before it was time to go, but here”s more of our favorites animals.

 

This photo will always make me laugh. I thought it would be super precious to have the two girls feed fluffy pink cotton candy to each other. Satori immediately offered her tuft to her cousin, but little Peyton loves her food and proceeded to cram her whole handful into her mouth quickly! I gave up on that cute idea and just took this photo. 🙂

Thanks Mom and Aunt Elizabeth for spending the day with our family! We’re sorry it snowed a foot in the mountains and we were unable to have you up to our house, but that will happen soon.

I admit we haven’t written any penpal letters the past week and a half, but I couldn’t resist posting this one! As I was hastily uploading photos earlier, Satori took a pen and paper and wrote grandma a letter. I did not help her at all (usually I dictate the letters for her to write her sentences), this is all Satori. 🙂

I am sorry that it will not make much sense to the average reader, but this is the best my 4 year old can do when writing a paragraph letter to her grandma. I love documenting these efforts, it wasn’t too long ago when she just had chicken scratch (no letters at all, just scribbles), then random letters, and now we have random words! It won’t be long until she is truly writing stories and letters all by herself with no help from me.

Again, I did not help her spell any of this, she was doing this all herself. I think it’s adorable! She is now writing a letter to grandpa. His is full of the words DEAR, CAT, FUN and random numbers. 🙂

A side note, Satori is on some kind of growth spurt, both mentally and physically. She seems to be wanting to learn tons and is asking all the time to do lessons. (We took a break last week while I designed our reading room.) She also is ALWAYS HUNGRY, which is not like her. I swear she is eating 10 meals a day! I want to clarify that she is not one of those  child geniuses that teach themselves how to read and do an entire Singapore math workbook in one day, but she is really progressing fast lately! She is attempting to write in lower case even though we haven’t covered it and has been picking up random books and trying to read them. I feel guilty that I do not spend much time actually homeschooling her this summer, it’s just a few minutes a day. This fall we’ll be more focused.

Grandma is in our thoughts all the time, but especially this week. Although Satori doesn’t know all the details, we all hope tomorrow goes smoothly! We will try to make it back to Wisconsin soon this summer and hang out with you and Grandpa.

Here’s a picture Satori drew of her and her grandma. She added the rooms of our house, as well as her butterfly pets flying around the house. (Click for larger image.)
