Papa Jim's Visit and Hudson's First Trip to the Zoo!

A couple weekends ago my dad, Papa Jim, came for a visit. 

Saturday we picked up burgers from our favorite place here and headed to the zoo. 

We had a picnic outside of the zoo before we went in. It was actually pretty chilly outside that day!

Hudson loved his grilled cheese and watching the birds around us.

This was Hudson's first trip to the zoo and he really enjoyed it.

His favorites were the birds and the animals that moved around a lot. The ones who just sat there did not catch his attention. 

He loved these birds!

He couldn't care less about the lions.

The little zoo in our town is just perfect for Hudson right now. It is small and we were able to see everything in about 45 minutes. And it took less than 10 minutes to get home for nap time!

When my dad is here we always do something fun on the grill. That night we made beer can chicken. It was SO moist and delicious! I also made John's favorite BBQ beans, roasted garlic mashed potatoes and grilled corn on the cob with honey lime butter! Yum!

After church Hudson enjoyed a snack with PJ. We had a great visit and can't wait for another one!


  1. Looks like a fun trip to the zoo! I'm sure Hudson had fun with his Papa! :)
