A Visit from Nana and Papa Cox

We've had a whirlwind few days of fun with Ryan's mom and dad in Columbus! Their first day here Ryan gave them a tour of the Pediatric Gastroenterology Department at Nationwide Children's Hospital so now they have a good idea of where he works.

Then we strolled through the North Market downtown and had a fresh and delicious lunch.
Ruby enjoyed the steel drum band at the entrance.
The girls loved having Nana and Papa here to read them books and have fun with them all day.
The Columbus Zoo was another highlight of their visit. Ruby encountered many animals and was quite happy running around acting like a monkey and jumping like a kangaroo.
Ruby backed up every time this tiger walked toward her. She is a smart one.

She touched a starfish. The worker girl had to remind her a couple of times to touch with one finger instead of giving the little guy a squish.
She was keeping her eye on this gorilla. He was a lot bigger than he looks in this picture.
Other than the stroller, this is becoming a good way to move Ruby along. She's a bit of a lollygagger and loves to stop and check out every little thing she sees along her way.
