This is one of the items on my list that's most important to me. Outings with my niece, Claire (aka C. Bear). I love spending time with her - it's so much fun watching her experience new things. A few weeks ago, we took her to Roger Williams Park Zoo, in Providence. Apparently, she has recently learned how to say "wow!" and was very impressed by the elephants and giraffes. "Wow! wow! wow!" She's heart-meltingly adorable.
