    We have been wanting to take Madison for weeks but something has always came up. Today we are heading to the Columbus Zoo so Madison can enjoy the animals. I remember as a kid mom used to take us a couple times during the summer and we had a great time. I just hope to make great memories for all of us. I will take some pics to share, hopefully the weather cooperates. There is a 20% of showers this afternoon. Will be a great day of walking around.

    I've been to the columbus zoo many many times. Used to only live about 5 minutes from there as a kid. i have a lot of good memories from being there. Now my parents are back to living five minutes from it.

    Today was a blast, had a great time. Here is how the day went.

    Woke up early and wife got Madison ready. She packed sippy cups, clothes, and made sure she had everything. I was getting ready and called little sis Amber to see if she wanted to go. Mom and other sis is in Pigeon Forge TN at a World Series Softball tournament. Amber said she wanted to go so I loaded up the car and we were ready to go.

    Not!!!!

    I started to pull off and could tell right away I had a flat tire. Crap!!! I got out and looked at it, have a portable air pump so filled up to see where the issue was. There was a wire in my tread so I filled her up and headed to mom and dads to pick up little sister. I was gonna plug it but dad was up and came out to do it. So, that was nice.

    We headed to the Zoo, weather held up. We did not get any rain. Man, was it hot though!! I went throught 10 bottles of water while we were there. Had a great time.

    Took Madison on the Train, the Boats, let her feed leerakets also. She had fun until one tried to bite her. She just got all teary eyed. Was cute though.

    She was wore out and ready to go home around 4, so was daddy and mommy. She crashed and we headed out of there.

    We then went to mom and dads to drop off little sister. Grandpa took Madison out to feed the ducks, goats, and dogs. Madison had a great time. She was chasing the ducks all over the place. LMAO

    We then went down to Mandys Dads and I had to help him install a water pressure switch. But he is an OTR trucker and is not home much so it is nice to spend time with him when we can.

    It was a great time with Madison, Wife, and little Sister. Memories that I will have forever. Here are some of the pics. I took over a hundred, but will only post a few of em. Enjoy
