I have ignored the online communities of blogs and Facebook this week. We have visitors. Our niece, Melissa and her two kids are visiting. Melissa is the one who was born on the same day our daughter Emily was born, and like Emily, she is a teacher and the mother of a little girl and a little boy, as Emily will soon be. It is always fun to see the cousins that we enjoyed so much when they were children, bringing their own children to visit. Yesterday we took these cuties to the Oregon Zoo.
This crocodile (or is it a caiman?) creeped me out. He did not move a muscle the whole time we were watching him.
And, really, can anyone with a camera resist hippos and zebras?
I hope you are allowing the real world to get you out from in front of your computer occasionally. I recommend it!
