Could It Be?

Is that a house over there? Actually, a townhouse (attached, but unlike a condo, there is airspace/fire/sound barriers, not a "common wall", and the land and structure are owned)...a townhouse that will hopefully be done and ours in the first week or two of September.

We would love to be able to celebrate Chloë's first birthday on September 6th...and then watch the Seahawks kick off the 2008-2009 season on September 7th in the new place...but we're not holding our breath!

On another note...this one talks the talk, but when it comes to walking it, she's a big chicken.

Zoo Cleanup

Seems like all we talk about anymore is the zoo! Well...there's just one more thing...

We were looking at these:

  • Robert: Aiden, look at those Gazelles!
  • Aiden (6): No Dad, those are Gerenuks.
  • Robert: Wha?
  • Aiden: Nope. Gerenuks.
  • Robert: (Confirming on the little sign) Wow! How did you know that?
  • Aiden: I don't know.
  • Sarah: Did you hear it from school or something?
  • Aiden: I don't know. I think it was just in my brain.

Dave Hardy: (From somewhere behind me) "That'd make a good blog post."

In my defense, though, they are also referred to as a "Waller's Gazelles." Take that, smarty-pants!

Not to be outdone, this is how Chloë passes her time on hot days.
