Fall Break 2009
This fall break has been a whirlwind. What with Karen's wreck, planning outings for Lily, and work, I find my mind and body needing a "mental" break...not that I could ever forget everything...but, today has been a day of rest. Letting my mind just be in idle.
Fall break is the two week break that Lily has at the Campus School. She is out of school for two weeks, but, Mama and Forrest are not. Lucky for Meemaw and me. We had girl time. She loves to have alone time with just the two of us. No outside interference from boys while we play dolls, draw, put on make-up, so on and so forth. I had planned on a visit to several outdoor activities on our time together in the beautiful fall weather here in Memphis. The only problem was that fall seemed to forget us this year. We went from summer heat to RAIN. I did decide one day to just put on rain gear and go for it. Off we went to the Memphis Zoo to see the newly opened Teton Trek.
The baby bears were somewhat playful, but, were too far away for me. They had been very playful when my friend went...jumping in the water and such. The Old Faithful erupted right on time for us to see it in its full glory, but, it did some out of concrete instead of the earth as it does in real life....oh, well. You get a picture of it, only sideways. Since this is a day for my brain to rest, I am not even going to try and correct it....it also drives me crazy when the first picture I want to show ends up being the last one in the post. Oh, well another day....
