I recently took a fun trip to Springfield, Missouri, so my son Derek could compete in the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) state finals. Enjoy these highlights from our visit!

The zoo!

We had a lot of laughs with the animals at Dickerson Park Zoo.

The peacock let us get up close and personal.

You can feed the goats.

And you can feed the giraffes! They had the most gentle mouths. They stuck out long dark tongues and we placed the giraffe crackers on them.

What a treat to feed the giraffe!

The competition!

Best of all, we came home victorious.

Derek took State Champion in website design, and second in networking.

We’ll be visiting Chicago for Nationals this summer.

Hope you enjoy some good food and good times this week, too!
