Upon arriving at the Owens' for a quick and much-needed visit before heading all the way home, Corynn was met by an exuberant Miss Mildred holding a quite fantastic grasshopper, newly caught, while declaring it Corynn's and I was met by the vibrant Miss Annika.
She drew me in with her dimples and with her husky, endearing voice said "Dis is for you and your children and your ba-eby", as she proudly held out a beautifully drawn picture of an elephant that her Aunt Becky (I presume) had drawn for her. It was so sweet.
She is an elephant lover from way back (well, as way back as you can get at 3 years old)...it is just part of her. So, I immediately told her about our seeing ELEPHANTS at the fair.
For her, and to thank her for sharing her treasures elephant picture with us, I post ALL of these AMAZING photographs of our elephant encounter. I hope you like them Annika...and my fingers can't wait to tickle you again when I see you again! ;-)
