From this very bad photo, you can see that the puppet show was done in the dark with help from black lights. It was a cool concept and very good for Carle's bright, colorful creations.
On the way home, Ryan and I caught this sunset over the Mississippi.

He was a little frightend by it. Shyed away from it like he does from the mascots. Didn't want to stand too close to it to have his picture taken.
Then he caught this catfish:
BTW, when I say Ryan caught, it really means, Daddy reeled in and Mr. Bill took off the hook. :) We did get around to hunting eggs and it was a great one!
This is one of my favorite shots of the day...Parker and Ryan flying a kite together.

So, Mark, that will have to hold you until we see you again! Can't wait!

We have taken many 3000 mile trips back to the east coast, along with a trip to Chicago, a few to the Gulf Coast, one to Texas. All these have contributed to the large number of miles in short time. We knew we were going to drive this car a lot and it's been a good ride. Hope that it makes it to 200,000!

Then we went to Dick's Sporting good to outfit Ryan:
Not sure we're going to be able to get the shin guards and cleats off of him! Stay tuned for more. Our next practice is Monday night!

No problem! We ate lunch in the cafe, and had fun anyway! Mason and Ryan played with the pillows in the seating area, collecting them, all and laying them all back out. Can you see them?

First the sea lions. They are very flexible and can bend their head's all the way back!
They use their whiskers to help balance balls on their noses (and to sense things in the deep, dark water).
They can jump out of the water like porpoises!
We saw the Polar Bear feeding.
Saw Ya-ya eating lunch outside in the sunshine.
Arlan and Ryan rode on the carousel.
Hung out on dads' shoulders.

We did see a lot of animals, including this baby monkey and his mama and some baby sheep at the farm!
