A couple of weeks ago, Megan and I met friends in New Jersey and spent the day at Van Saun Park. I hadn't been there since the boys were very young. I'm not a fan of zoos, truth be told. Most of the animals at the park were once injured and wouldn't be able to survive in the wild. The weather was beautiful and the kids had a wonderful time and I took a ton of photos so, all in all, it was a great day.
I think it was probably most difficult for me to see the mountain lion and these incredibly beautiful eagles in captivity.
We took a little train ride around the park to see the larger exhibits and, afterwards, had some lunch and visited the huge playground for a while. We're hoping to take a few more day trips before the summer ends. There are only two weeks left of summer camp which will take us into August already. All of our local shopping places have had their back-to-school supplies out for a few weeks and our local crafting stores have their fall things on display. Before you know it, they will be sneaking in Christmas too!! The wonderful world of retail waits for no one!! : )
I took a bunch of non-animal photos at the zoo also. I'll share some of those next time. Now it's off to enjoy this beautiful, sunny and cool day we've been blessed with. We've been toying with the idea of taking the kids fishing tonight. I'll keep you posted. : )
Hope you're all having a wonderful day ~ Wendy xo
