A Love Note & Taking Aunt Terry To The Phoenix Zoo...

My 83 year old Aunt Terry and her buddy, Ethel, were in Arizona from Texas for a few days. Aunt Terry (my mom's only sister and my only living aunt) is a gambler and Harrah's gives her trips to different properties they own around the U.S.A.. Well Auntie decided she hadn't seen me in many years so decided to visit Harrah's Ak-Chen Casino in Maricopa, AZ. so she could come visit me. Cool huh?

On March 21st Patrick and I took Aunt Terry and Ethel to the Phoenix Zoo. Below is the bridge across the water leading to the Phoenix Zoo. Side note: As a fund raiser almost 20 years ago the Zoo sold engraved bricks and as a surprise to me for Christmas Patrick bought 2. One for the bridge and one for me to unwrap at home! We looked for & found "our" brick before entering the Zoo. Auntie has emphysema so we rented a wheel chair to make it a little easier on her for touring the zoo. Patrick was pleased to be her "chauffeur". What a guy! Below are photos, in no particualr order, from our zoo trip. I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed our trip. By the way, it was just a gorgeous day to do the zoo!

That brick idea is cute. I can't believe you found yours out of all those bricks!
Your aunt is a cutie; just like your mom. ;)
