We did go to the zoo though. The local zoo. It's kind of small, but it's still pretty cool. Hello Mr. Tortoise. How are you today?
The Barbary apes really have attitude.
This is one bea-u-tiful kitty. A bobcat, or mountain lion. I always forget how big these guys actually are.
Definitely not someone to mess with.
The obligatory kid shot on the fake elephant.
and another one, just cuz'.
Isn't he gorgeous?
We really lucked out. They were getting ready to feed the lions while we were there.
We don't often get to see them so active when we go to the zoo. It's usually roasting hot, and they're napping in the shade. So this was WAY cool for us! These two are brother and sister. They were born the year Ashley was born. We have pictures of them as cubs. So, they're celebrating their ten year birthday's this year.
Feeding the multitudes
(of pigeons, roosters, hens and chicks)
Peeking at the otter. (can you see him?)
watch your fingers!! SNAP!!!
So we also went to the park a couple of times.
See that building over there in the distance? That's a school. There was a fire truck in the parking lot, it had just shown up, sirens blazing. Justin decided he needed a much closer view of the "Cah!!!""JUSTIN!!!! Get back here!!"
running away from mommy.
more sliding fun....And last, but not least. Why "playing ketchup"? Justin seems to think it makes a great facial and hair conditioning treatment.
