I Hear Faces "Autumn Beauty" is the theme this week. I guess since it's week 45 there are only 7 more weeks left in the year. They don't describe me as sharp for nothin !!! Since we have no evidence of Autumn yet, maybe soon, I found this photo from Disney World. I'm homesick for Disney !!!
They have been working, for what seems like forever, on a new train and some new exhibits at our zoo. We got to check out the real deal this week when the kids had an inservice day at school. It was so much fun having them all there.
There was much to see on the train ride. They all sat in front of me and took it all in. That's what I love about my kids, I wasn't in the least nervous to let Little Man sit there with his brother and sister. I knew they would behave and be safe.
Little Man loved having Little Mama and The Rhino with us, it is usually just me and him and a friend.
How exciting to share this with them.
There were alot of shots of the kids backs this trip. It will become obvious that I couldn't quite get in front of them, but I really liked this picture.
Almost to the Piranha's. It's great to have The Rhino reading, he was able to read all the signs about the animals for himself and if someone else wanted to know. Very exciting for me and I think him too.
OK this is one of the very few forward facing shots I was able to get and those fish are Piranha's!!!
This is how close we could get to the leopard. It was exciting.
There was a fairly new addition to the giraffe family, 8 months and 369 pounds. This guy was just hanging out and I loved him !!!
This is the baby elephant and this is how I felt after our trip to the zoo.
I think we will go more often now that some of the new exhibits are open again.
Anyone willing to do this must be a little off their rocker. I'm not sure that I would declare Oma extremely crazy but definitely off kilter.
A ride on toy? who does that? especially in tandem with a 2 year old. Well ok I guess if I could fit I might do that, does that make me crazy ?
And this is how the spiral downhill starts. I just wanted a few pictures of Oma with the kids and The Rhino is the only one who wanted to have his picture taken to my great surprise.
The craziness started almost immediately. when these two start in on each other it's hard to get them under control again.
Their attempt at controlling themselves. I just see them both thinking how they will be attacking the other one and when to spring.
Or maybe they are thinking about a surprise attack on something over my head?
I'm pretty sure they were thinking of each other.
And the deal is done. The Rhino only has so much patience at the young age of 8, he could no longer wait. Just so we are clear this is where the Dimples come from, OMA !!!
I'm not sure who has the upper hand.
A moment of truce.
Short lived and then another full blown attack, this one with an altogether different strategy. The last 'lay across the lap' strategy gave to much exposure to the rib area. This strategy looks to have a little more arm involved.
Or maybe it's lips
Whatever it seems like fun.
Back to the lips
Back to the giggling.
I think it most definitely is a little bit of crazy, I hope it's genetic it sure looks like fun.
I got a new lens for my camera, shame on me, but I love it !!! It is considered a wide angle and lets me get a way wider filed of view than I have ever had before. So like this picture I got the long room and the stairs all in one picture, loving it.
And look at this picture. I think it's lovely even though it's really not that great a picture. I was able to get the fence just in front of me and all the way up to the setting sun!!!
I love sun flare!!!
Little Mama is working on her hand stands, she will have it shortly I'm sure.
She won't practice in the grass, I'm not sure why. I'm praying she won't drop on her noodle !!!
