"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

A Day at the Zoo

Matt and I took Carson to the Central Florida Zoo in Sanford this past weekend. The Central Florida Zoo isn't the biggest zoo, but it was perfect for the length of time we were able to stay. Carson is at such a wonderful stage and Matt and I are thoroughly enjoying taking him to do fun things for the first time.

The monkeys definitely caught his attention! They were making noises and swinging around their cage. He could have watched them for awhile!

After a few animal visits, we stopped at the kids area splash park. I knew that the Zoo had this, so we packed his little swim trunks. Now that Carson is walking, it was the perfect activity for him! He had SO much fun and Matt and I were laughing the entire time. He got in there with all of these bigger kids and just squealed!

They had all kinds of fountains that would turn on and off, and animals that shot water out too. There were buckets underneath trees that would randomly dump water. It was awesome!

We spent a couple of hours there and Carson was exhausted! We didn't even make it home before he was fast asleep. What a fun day and an awesome family memory we made!
