Runnin around like a bunch of wild animals!

So due to lack of sufficient time, i.e. laziness I have decided to post the zoo and the wild animal park together.

I bet they have full time gardeners. =) I think it would be very fun to put on a resume.

Skills: can sculpt an elephant out of a bush and maintain it for years!


Once again I have lovingly shared only one of the 20 poses.




Kissing frogs already! Fortunately it all turned out well - no prince yet. Im just not ready!




Look a zebra! My sweet neice is totally into Zebra print right now - very fun.

Do you mind? Im clearly eating right now! Oh right I eat ALL DAY! I think we could be friends.




This is a Kookaburra. This is probably not news to you but it was reveletory for me. While singing the song I always pictured a Koala type animal eating all the gumdrops or sittin on the electric wire. Its a bird! That clears up a lot of confusion for me actually cause I was always very confused about a Koala sitting on a electric fence. whew! load off my back!

Not a novelty for you again of course but I think I think Lizards are cool - or at least they look cool - I dont need one as a pet.


Dont try this at home folks!






Thank you seal Melia.


Just a second Kyan - oh never mind.


Oops can't see her face one more try.

Nevermind...



This is obviously a completely natural rock formation. =)


All my life my mom has stopped to take pictures of flowers (banana slugs as well but thats another story) and it has become a family story/joke. Oh look a weed mom probably wants to take a picture. That or a rotting old barn or shack. Its in the same category as one of my dads "shortcuts" or Dallin showing you his scar. Tyler's "whoa baby" - also a classic. Im beginning to understand my mothers enjoyment of taking pictures of flowers. They are pretty, you dont need to bribe them to make a normalish face, they can't run away and you can decorate with them in your home and feel somewhat like a grownup!



Wildest animals in the zoo! Just so you know it was a pretty cool zoo and doesn't deserve the "Sandylameo" description. {Movie quote!} get it?

Evidence that she is sometimes sweet and cute and not always Little Miss Rage. That little purple dress of hers is a showstopper though - just ask Lisa. Within minutes of entering the zoo we were stopped and she was properly adored and fawned over by about three people. You just can't get anything done! But you have to wonder about her random anger - what does she have to complain about? Daddy hauled her everywhere!
The chairs made me happy and I never even turned on the massage option. I think Lisa may be right when she says I should decorate with animal print. It really is ME!
Another photo opp. "Look at mommy, Kyan" "Look at mommy" "Kyan!" "Never mind - thanks Melia."
Coolest merry-go-round ever. No boring horses here! Rode free with our GO SanDiego cards - sweet!

For your Entertainment

On a warm summer's evenin' with a toddler bound for nowhere,
I met up with my husband; we were both too tired to sleep.
So we took turns a haulin' the toddler in the darkness
'Til sleep then overtook him, and we crashed on the couch.

She said, "Man, I've made my life out of readin' babies faces,
And knowin' what their needs are by the way they rubbed their eyes.
so if you don't mind my sayin', I can see you're out of ideas.
For a piece of your chocolate I'll give you some advice."

So he handed her his chocolate and she chowed down his last snickers.
Then she wanted backrubs and asked for a massage.
And the night got deathly quiet, and her face lost all expression.
Said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy, ya gotta learn to play it right.

You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to scold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never spank your children when you're ragin' bout the vas’line.
There'll be time enough for spankins' when the cleanin's done.

Ev'ry mother knows that the secret to organizin'
Is knowin' what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
'Cause ev'ry man's a winner and ev'ry man's a loser,
And the best that you can hope for is he brings in the dough."

When she'd finished speakin', she crawled back to her bedroom,
He cleared the table off and loaded up the dishwasher.
And somewhere in the darkness the husband, he just got it.
Cause in her final words he found a gem that he could keep.

You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to scold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never spank your children when you're ragin' bout the vas’line.
There'll be time enough for spankins' when the cleanin's done.


(I know I know - I really should make a great deal of money for my corruption of famous music - now tell them that!)
