The first part of our trip was for the whole family. We took Ruby to the zoo for the first time. It was incredible to see her checking out the animals and connecting them to books we have read. We had gorgeous weather and the Portland zoo is beautiful. We were surrounded by conifer trees and trees covered in red, orange, gold leaves.
When Ruby saw the giraffe, she bent her neck like the giraffe in From Head to Toe. She loved the big fish, making monkey noises, and the bears. She enjoyed the farm animals, especially petting the goats. Unfortunately, most of our pictures didn’t turn out, it was shaded or dark in a lot of spots.
Congratulations to Curt & Jill on the birth of their baby boy, Gavin!
