Spring is like a Slinky

We took advantage of the last day of Spring Break (other people's Spring Break, mind you - I MISS Spring Break!) to take a trip to the zoo. It was a gorgeous day and we headed to Gainesville to check out the Frank Buck Zoo. It is a smaller zoo, which can be of ultimate importance when you are say, 8 months pregnant.

The giraffe exhibit was one of the highlights of the trip. The zoo has some great elevated walkways and we were able to get some good, up-close views of the sweet couple. Although they did seem a little amorous . . . what can we say, it is spring.
Jackson also got to feed some goats.
Jackson proclaimed his favorite zoo animal to be the bear. Unfortunately, this was not the best bear exhibit around.
This was the running joke when my parents were touring Europe, but I don't think I have ever seen it put so bluntly.
Jackson had a great day!
After that refreshing car nap, Jackson was ready to take on more of the great outdoors. His first project was some excavation in the dirt pile that we are harboring in our backyard. This involved flinging most of the dirt on himself. There was also some rock relocation and bubble blowing. We capped off this fun with a construction worker-worthy bath.
And just when we thought Spring had finally sprung, we woke up to this! Up to 10 inches of snow in the area. Ridiculous. Old Man Winter, didn't we tell you that things just weren't working out and we needed to go our separate directions? Take a hike or we're filing a restraining order.
