Short and Sweet

It's zoo time again!  I'll try to only post zoo pictures that are fun or interesting or have an adorable little girl or two in them, or I might just post all of them.  ;)  Who doesn't love the zoo (besides Andy :))?  These first ones are mostly for my mom who loves the "big cats."  They are normally laying around....very boring....but this day it must have been lunch time because they were pacing.  We have heard the male lion growl from the other side of the zoo and it is loud and awesome.  My goal before we leave is to hear it up-close.
They have a number of ducks, geese, and peacocks that walk around the zoo.  This one walked up to us and that little boy gave him a chicken nugget.  Hadley, meanwhile, started screaming because it scared her.  Joni thought it was awesome :)
So I didn't get the girls looking at this snow leopard but had to take a picture of him with HIS TAIL IN HIS MOUTH.  Whatever floats your boat I guess.
 I have been exercising in the afternoons with a dancing game on the Wii.  Hadley and Joni also enjoy a good dance off :) and the exercise doesn't hurt them either!
 Joni LOVES "glubs" and often finds our winter wear basket and puts on as much as she can.  Too bad it is usually too warm to wear it all outside.  If she only knew where we came from....I think she is going to love the snow (when she is finally introduced to it) just as much as her dad and Oma. 
 This is Mr. Mustache.  One of the malls has a 1st Tuesday of the month kids fun time that a dear friend invited us to.  This month was Mr. Mustache the Magician.  It was actually pretty good......  
 and judging by Hadley's reaction, she liked it too.
 Joni loves gloves on her hands as well as her socks.  Andy had a good idea, after seeing her walking around with her socks on her hands, to make a sock puppet.  She thought it was great fun until I wouldn't let her color on her socks with a permanent marker.
 I have been noticing that I need to take more pictures.  After our awesome picture opportunity filled Christmas, our poor camera hasn't been used much.  We do pretty much the same things every week but I will try to change it up a bit :)  Love to you all!
