Mother's Day weekend we headed to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, right here in the Springs, with Grandpa and Grandma Meredith and Uncle Andy. It was Eleanor's first trip and we knew it would be a hit with her love of animals and the sounds they make. The only disappointment was that once we were there I realized that animals in the zoo rarely make any sounds. They are surprisingly quiet! We had a fantastic time, quiet animals and all.
