what a surprise – no animal pictures! ;)

Miraculously we managed to fit in a visit to the zoo yesterday between all Seattle’s weird summer thunder, lightning and inch and a half of rain!
Cora was very clear that she wanted to hold hands with both of us when we walked around which made life a little interesting since my wheelchair tends to roll in circles when I’m only using one hand 🙂

This aviary is a favourite of Cora’s and you can tell that she thought this little green guy was pretty funny 😉

and when Grandad wanted to ride on the carousel she was a very good sport and went with him just to keep him company 🙂

We were forced to take refuge in the gift shop when the lightning came back 😉

and in the dry times I made sure that I taught Cora some really useful life skills!!

Fun times indeed 🙂

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
