In following the tradition of Clare we return again to E Friday, where I post photos of my darling granddaughter E, because VG really likes to look at these pics.
E lives up in Portland Oregon, where it is usually a lot cooler (and wetter) than Las Vegas. Despite this, there seems to be a lot more outdoor things to do there. They have a lot of bike trails and large parks, a beautiful rose garden on the hill above downtown and a very nice zoo. E’s parents have an annual zoo pass, so that they can go as much as they like without paying each time. E likes the zoo, and so they go quite often. They sometimes have special events, such as the birthday of their oldest elephant, where kids get birthday cake and big paper elephant ears to wear.
Last year they had a dinosaur exhibit, with models scattered all over. E liked the dinosaurs
And evidently they didn’t bite. (and stripes for Lisa).
When they come to visit we go to the park near our house. There are not near as many trees as at the Portland parks, but it is a pleasant place to go play in the wintertime.
E still likes the slides, and has no problem climbing up the big structure to get to the tall ones. There are shorter sets for smaller kids as well.
Of course, we always have to bring a snack in order to keep up our energy.
