Daddy with his wagonload of monkeys at the zoo.

Lifting E up to see the seals.

Daddy and C bonding over lunch.

That boy loves his daddy.

I love E’s cautious curiosity. Exactly how far could that lion jump?

The wagon wasn’t big enough for three small territorial creatures. B elected to ride in the stroller, from which perch he studied the map and gave directions.

The boys have been poring over their maps ever since, planning the next visit.

Taking it all in. And looking like his daddy, I think.
