We took a little trip to visit the Franklin Park Zoo today! It was our first visit to this zoo and Connors first visit to any zoo – it was a success! We were very happy with the zoo. If you are in the Boston area, and want to do something kid-friendly, I recommend it. It’s not too big, so you can see everything without getting footsore and exhausted. There is a huge, huge playground that seemed to be a big hit with every kid, including Connor. There’s a good variety of animals – we liked the kangaroos, ostriches, zebras, gorillas, leopard, tigers, ocelot, peacock, and giraffe. There were so many more, too. Even the little snack bar had decent food.
It was a perfect day. Nice weather, fun adventure. Lots of happy smiles. My word for today (like many days) is grace. I just am breathing grace into my innermost being. Accepting the gift from Him, despite my imperfectness, brokenness, flaws, etc. Grace. That’s what it’s for. I can’t fix me, but he’s already provided that grace.
