So, obviously, we went to the zoo this weekend. And Ezra was a bit enamored by the Leopards. I should be clear, he didn’t care as much when it was only the dad leopard in front of him (on the left), but when the younger, female (daughter) leopard showed up and sat to stare at him, he was a touch fascinated (as we all were!).
The rest of the weekend was pretty great as well — weather in the 50s and 60s, lots of walks, Ezra’s first wagon rides, Magda’a first trip down the slide at the playground (!!), zoos, record stores and some big KU basketball wins. Speaking of college basketball, this play broke my heart. And yes, I know it’s not even Kansas! That’s how heartbreaking it was!
This kid got to ride in the wagon to go pick up some bird feed with us, and boy-oh-boy did he like that!
Ah yes! There also was another haircut. As you can see, we started with tears… but those cleared up in about one minute. The rest of the time he just somberly watched the infamous and magical Barber Bob do his work.
One thing Bob does to keep Ezra calm is he avoids using a cape because that can freak kids out.
So it’s a good thing we keep lint brushes for the dogs in our car. Because this kid has a LOT of hair.
On Sunday, we took Ezra to church. Our church! That would be the record store! I loved watching him toddle around holding onto my purchases.
Here’s another shot from the zoo — Ezra loved the penguins.
And lastly, here is a shot of Magda on top of the slide at the park. She climbed on up there and I made her sit for a photo, then she just scrambled down the slide like the kids do (but on all fours). What a goof.
Now! I should probably address last Friday! I had taken a photo for my blog, and I had found an internet share of the day, and … and… I simply forgot to put it all online. I was super busy with a shoot that day and a trip to the vet with Magda and meeting a service person at the house, and that part of my job kinda slipped my mind. I’m so sorry!
I will post that photo eventually, but for now, I’ll give you that internet share of the day. I loved reading this story about Gwen Stefani and her newest album. I’m not an enormous Gwen fan or anything (just sorta ambivalent about her), but after reading this, I think she’s pretty rad. Enjoy!
