Spending the weekend with grandpa

Last weekend, I took Janie down to Pueblo, to spend some time with her family. Her grandfather is getting on in years, and J wants to spend as much quality time with him as she can. And this turned out to be a perfect weekend for it. We bought him a DVD recorder and tried to teach him how to use it, though I'm not sure I fully understood the details. On Sunday, we had grandpa mostly to ourselves, and took him out to the Pueblo Zoo, which was a surprisingly good time. The zoo is hidden in a park, you can't see it from the road, so it took some finding. Once there, it was perfect fall zoo weather, a little rainy, nice and cool, and the animals for the most part seemed quite happy. One thing I noticed is that the zoo lets you get up close to the animals, which seemed a change of pace from most zoos. A sun bear came up and gave us a good sniff as we stood three feet from him. It was a pretty good day, only marred by the fact that the penguin's weren't on display, as their habitat was undergoing a yearly rehabilitation. It was a good time.
