Jeff was on vacation this week and we’ve really been getting some quality family time with him. Yesterday, we spent the day at the zoo and even though it cold, we bundled up and enjoyed the chilly sunshine. The best part was that the male lion, Xerxes, put on a show for us – a wonderfully close-up show! Look at this majestic animal.
We had a great conversation with the other guests at the zoo (all 3 of them) about why he was melancholy. We figured he was probably roaring because his lioness has been segregated from him while she tends to her their brand new cubs. It kind of made my heart sad and happy at the same time – do you ever have that?
We still have more family bonding in store but right about now, we are at an appointment to get Elise her very first passport. And how’s this for weird – the guy who took my passport picture took a better photo than the portrait studio where we just had our Christmas cards shot. Oh, the irony is not lost on me.
Here are this week’s features!
