Phil and I keep trying for kids, but no luck, yet. In the meantime, I get to live vicariously through friends with kids--namely, Risa and Keith's one-year old Saul. I need to be a more fastidious picture-taker and documentarian, but its not old-hat yet. I haven't learned the blend-into-the-background thing--I'll get there. Our most recent outing was the zoo for Halloween. Why haven't I done this every year that I've been in Seattle? Little kids dressed up as animals in a place filled with animals? I wanted to pick each one up and put them in their respective animal bin with a pat on the head and a, "this is your mommy and daddy now." Of course, I didn't do that. Or did I?
The zoo gives pumpkins to different animals throughout the day. I guess the polar bears have a lot of fun with them. The ring-tail lemurs were intrigued by them, and later could be heard fighting over them.
One mom gave me stank-face for takin' a picture of her kid and her. I ask, "Why dress your child up like the food they are giving the animals?" It is a form of child abuse, if you ask me. I would post the pic, but she obviously didn't like me taking the picture. If I know you and you want to see it, I'll send you a link.
