Another day at the Zoo - Official Members



Kali in "HER" playhouse


Before we went to the Zoo, Kali talked her Mom into coming up into the playhouse with her...Kristin was a good sport and did it


Mitch giving Marshall a ride


Sneaking in some grandma kisses


Trying to find the animal


Marshall found a stick to chew on...good for the immune system :o)


The BEST part of the Zoo...feeding the giraffe, Aubrey...Kali getting all the information needed to feed the Giraffe


She had NO fear what so ever


Giving us the tongue


You weren't allowed to touch her, but it sure was tempting


Kali with her look of satisfaction


Aubrey's baby...7 month old Daniel


Couldn't get enough of looking at her


Loving the Pink Flamingo's... FYI did you know flamingos are pink because of the shrimp they eat...and they stand on one leg to conserve their body heat while they rest...


It was feeding time for the elephant so we got to see them up close, Popeye and Kali girl


Walking around enjoying the weather and the beautiful scenery of the zoo


Apple Jul and the female lion...the male was camouflaged in the grass


Kali wanted a picture with the silverback


This Gorilla was hilarious...he was on his back spread eagle, showing all his glory, with his arms over his eyes enjoying the sun


Enjoying her sleigh ride, she couldn't get enough of this


Enjoying the train your dinosaur show, up close and personal


Another fearful trainer


When he first came out Kali was fine, but look at Marshall scooting back towards Kristin, he was truly scared


He was roaring at Kali and Marshall


taking a rest


Father like son...we had a lot of fun, we bought a membership that allows us and all our grandkids in for free for a whole year...we look forward towards more visits ahead

The MANY Faces of Scott Herron

Okay... SO...My husband needed a "head shot" for a work picture and this morning he asked me to take "one". As soon as I started to click the camera , of course he became a ham and I took several funny poses while we laughed together. Now...when I first met Scott, he had a really funny sense of humor which I absolutely loved about him (he still does) but over the last 30 years, I'm going to be very honest here, it kind of became an irritant to me...I DON'T know why, just busy with kids, busy with life and the comedy always seemed to come at the most inappropriate time. But as the kids have left home, I've become a lot more relaxed & less irritated and I have come to enjoy this humorous side of him again...(ohhh and he loves that I'm starting to laugh at him again!) He doesn't like to give me an open mouth smile, he prefers his "no teeth" smile and is always fighting me when I say PLEASE smile with you teeth showing! It's usually NO...but this morning he gave me one! He asked me to e-mail him my favorite one for his work photo and I was really surprised because I of course picked the open mouth smile! Here are a few of his playful shots he gave me..LOVE THEM ALL, but of course had to send the most appropriate one for work. I love my husband, it's nice after 30 years to fall in love all over again and to remember ONE of the reasons I fell in love with him in the first place...ENJOY! If you feel like it, tell me which one is your favorite...Oh and we enjoy watching Project Runway together and he loves TIM GUNN and does a PERFECT impersonation of him!

His official Mug Shot (no he's never had one)

The one he let me take for his work photo...LOOOVE IT !
(done in my opera voice!)

The smile he always takes...which I love too...cutie pie...
Being a good listener pose...

His Tim Gunn pose...adjusting his glasses while saying..
okay designers...talk to me...

Trying to make a decision pose...(love this one too, because
my Dad used to place his finger beside his nose like this
and it reminds me of him)

Another Tim Gunn pose...while deciding wether he likes the design of the clothing or not..OHH and he's not going to be happy with me posting these, but oh well...at least he'll know how much I've come to love this funny side of him...again...

Happy Happy Birthday Marshall # 1


This picture is SO cute...he knows something special is
happening and he's acting kind of shy about it...

As we started singing Happy Birthday and we said his name I think he finally realized it was about him...Look at that smile

These two LOVE eachother...

Lovin the first bites of his cake...

These two were up to something...with a little encouragement from their Apple Jul, they loved making the mess (it was great for pictures ;o)

Ahhhh...so nice...My baby boy with his baby boy

We got a little carried away


I HEART San Francisco!


Kali was excited to go over the Golden Gate Bridge

Doesn't she take cute pictures...She is such a happy little girl


Soaking up the warm sun...


Out on Pier 39


Riding the Merry Go Round...Kali got to ride the Dolphin...
