Summer Recap: Rotterdam Zoo

We went with Shelley and our friends (Falkena family) to the zoo. I always have a good time at the zoo and of course the kids do too!

They have an awesome playground! The slide (below) was actually REALLY fun!

Glade prefers to lick his ice cream from the table. I wonder how clean those zoo tables are!
See the butterfly? Because I don't!
Shell and Myra bug
Myra wanted to pet the alligator.
We got this cute monkey magnet and Jimmy made this creepy contraption to hold him. Looks like some freaky form of torturing device! :)

Let the Summer Recap Begin!

I'm finally going to begin sorting through all my summer pictures. We have had quite the adventures and have quite the number of photos. We sadly just said goodbye to our last visitors. We've had guests since the beginning of May and it has honestly been SO much fun! It feels so strange to have just our little family here now.

I suppose I will start from the beginning (or somewhere near it). Shelley (my sis) and I went to Delfshaven. It's here in Rotterdam. It's really pretty...lots of boats, water, a windmill, etc. The old part of Delfshaven survived World War 2.
In 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers held their last meeting in this church before sailing to America.
And here's a cute boy who followed us around that day! :)
