A day at the zoo

It was a beautiful sunny and warm Spring day today.  Where better to spend a few hours than at the zoo and with a good friend?

I haven’t been to the Henry Vilas zoo in over a year.  Wow, what a lot of new exhibits.  I fell in love with this Macaw who was just as happy as a clam taking a shower in her huge tree-filled conservancy.

But the real joy was getting to know Tyler, my friend Lynda’s son.  I had a blast seeing the animals through his eyes and just absorbing his sweet energy.  We even got to pet a skink!!!!   He gave me the biggest hug when I had to leave and my heart melted just a little……

I’ve known Lynda since kindergarten and we’ve always had the type of friendship where we can go years without seeing each other but pick up right where we left off.  We can tell each other anything and the other just understands.

It reminds me of the childhood song – “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other’s gold.”

A good day!
