My "gift" to Denver Christian this year was a trip to the zoo for two and lunch. A family in my class grabbed it up, set the date, and we were off. Ella came too, but I recruited my sister Amanda to come with to help me with Ella. It was a fun day for Ella. She enjoyed looking at the "moving" animals. The nonmoving animals she didn't even know were there. She enjoyed the fish and the monkeys the best. I never can get the order of pictures correct on here, but the pictures of the rain is what we had to drive home in. Look carefully to see all the street flooding. It was a scary drive home.
