Love that sweet face!
He woke up before the infusion was over but was in a good mood and was ready to eat.
Selah played and watched tv while waiting on her brother to get finished. The volunteer who does the face-painting was there and Selah was all excited to see her. She had her mind all made up--she wanted two apples, one red and one green, painted on her arm.
It turned out so cute! I especially like the worms. :)
After Korban was finished, we headed back across the street to the Ronald McDonald House.
At least she shared:
Then she tore into his tail feathers, saying "bye-bye, butt!" Oh, Selah.
After lunch we headed to the Birmingham Zoo. The Ronald McDonald House has a membership arrangement so that any of their residents can go to the zoo for free. We love the zoo so much, so this was a big treat for us. The weather was just lovely and Birmingham has a very nice zoo. We really enjoyed ourselves.
We were walking around looking at a different things, and Selah started trying to pull us down this dead end alley. We told her no, that there wasn't anything to see down there, but we were wrong. This was what Selah had spotted:
A big peacock in all of it's glory!
Selah sidled up for a photo op. She was probably trying to figure out how to get that thing in our van! ;)
Selah also got to see her other favorite bird, the flamingos.
Korban went to visit the gorilla. That's his favorite animal there. The gorilla was totally chillin'--enjoying the sunshine.
We had a blast at the zoo. This whole weekend was great, and I want to write about all of it but this post is already long, so I'm going to have to break it up. Consider this part one. To be continued!
