10 Months Later

Here's the only tiger I saw at the zoo today!

Though both Koji and Izumi are still recovering from the mysterious virus that plagued us all weekend, there was no way I was going to have us sit at home through a 73 degree March day! The zoo isn't that close to us, and last time we went it was a family outing, so I felt the strain of packing everyone up and getting us over there by myself. However, just being outside for the first time in months was certainly reward enough. I also enjoyed feeling that we were getting some value out of our membership and "meeting" Arnieta the baby giraffe.

What better way to celebrate Izumi's 10-month-old birthday?

Looks like streaks of creativity to me. Good job, Koji!

Love you, Grandma

Well done, Jamie! I vividly remember lovely zoo expeditions, doing just as much as I and the kids had energy for, gulping in the fresh air and sunshine, and feeling somehow not so lonely with Steve gone, surrounded by other people in all sorts of combinations. The kids always got fascinated by something, and sometimes it was as simple as climbing upon and standing tall on a rock bordering the sidewalk! Even slightly sick kids appreciate a little change of pace, and seem to get better a bit faster from it.
