Wild Things, Saturday, June 1, 2013

What a great time we had at Wild Things Animal Park. The tour guide took us on a tram ride, where we saw a strange variety of rescued wild animals -- including lazy lions, crazy foxes and ostriches that looked like dinosaurs. We fed the buffalo -- they were VERY large.

Gingerbread cookies

I got the call that there would be gingerbread baking at Max's. I rushed right over.

When Marty & I got there, Quinn told us he had outgrown his nap.

We would never have guessed.

Quinn was working on his stand-up comic routine. He was very good.

Max had a great idea. Since Quinn does whatever Max does, he  thought he could lure Quinn into his crib by showing him what fun it was.

Kiss Glow-Worm night night!

Max's Birthday!

"Crocodile cake," said Quinn. "It's a dinosaur." "Reptile cake," Quinn corrected himself.

Trampoline Arena was like visiting another planet with zero gravity! People were bouncing around so fast you could hardly see them.  I looked and looked for Max, but he was nowhere to be found.

I felt bad that Max hadn't been invited to his own party!  Where was he?
Quinn strapping on his gear. At least he's there.
Here's Quin and his daddy in the upper left hand corner.  They're doing a little bouncing around. But still -- no Max!
Max' very sweaty daddy.  He's been getting a work out.
I think Max is enjoying a tasty reptile.

Max the First Grader

Bethia and I drove to Max's school to have lunch with him.

The cafeteria was crowded and very noisy!

Max as usual was having a great time with his friends.

We went outside to eat. Max ate his his lunch backwards. He started with his Hershey's kiss, then he ate his fruit roll-up, then he had his applesauce, and then he ate some goldfish crackers, and by the time he came to his sandwich, he was full. Too bad!

News Flash -- Max breaks a board in Tae Kwon Do!

But he's not smiling because he has a yellow tip on his sash now! He's just discovered the Halloween candy!

"Baby shoot, baby shoot." Quin, who refers to himself affectionately as, 'Baby,' was much taken with a pop gun given to his brother some years ago.  Whenever Max tried for a turn, there was a wounded cry of "Baby shoot! Baby shoot!" At last it was time to go, and Quin was carried to the van crying, although he cheered up immediately at the sight of the bat hanging on my front door and joined in a round of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  In the van, Bethia told me about the yellow tip on his sash Max earned in Tae Kwon Do.  "Baby tip! Baby tip!" Quin called out.  "I've got a baby tip for you,"  his tired mother answered while she strapped him into his car seat. "Don't throw yourself on a tile floor when you lose your temper and bang your head!"
