Zoo Trip

Okay, so I'm very very slow. Pictures from early August ...

The man with Gary is Randy, one of the bosses at Gary's work, and the guy has done so much to teach Andrew to sing bass! (Andrew was seated next to Randy last year in choir, and it helped him immeasurably just to be able to follow the lead of the strong singer next to him.)

Petting a chicken. (My mom is not jealous of Alia!)

Petting a snake. Now, does James agree with what Pastor said in Bible class a week or two ago, about our natural inclination to be to recoil from snakes?

She liked the baby chicks.

Rainy day. Typical kid -- just as enchanted by the umbrella as she was by the animals.


All the kids but Nathan made it that day:


  1. It appears as though Alia is very attention-deprived. No one even notices when she's in the room, do they? :)

  2. I love the red wall. And the baby, too, of course!

  3. I guess these pictures give new literalistic meaning to being the "center of attention"!
