First thing today we did Robert and Brenda's favorite; we went to the
We went early in the morning because the birds are more
active before they are fed. We've been to the National Aviary and other
zoos that have birds, but this was something else. They have lots of
colorful parrots, loros, and toucans. And in the early morning, they
can make quite a racket! The loros didn't just talk to us, they laughed!
And that made us laugh, which made them laugh more! Mary took lots of
pictures and hopefully I can post some.
It rained last night and some this morning, so the trip home was
wetter and slower. It took less than one half hour to cross back over
the border. I prayed that the crossing would be short and smooth,
because Mary and I had really spent too much time shopping at the
bird park. We stopped at a Mennonite dairy for ice cream, and again
later at a restaurant we'd been to before, the one that serves
hamburgers with ham, egg, and cheese on top. Some of us had seconds
on ice cream there also.
We're back at Robert and Brenda's home now and we will be here until
we come home next Monday. I'm not too sure what's happening from here
on out, but I think some of us will go walking early tomorrow morning,
and I think Mary and Brenda still have some more girl stuff planned.
