Bucket of Balls

So in case you didn't know, our boys LOVE their tennis balls. Michele has this huge bucket full of them in her backyard so when they visit they are in heaven.

Here Chase has discovered the bucket of balls and is alerting Hopper to the find. Score!

Chase was bound and determined to get those balls but he was much too short. So try and try he did and this is what it looked like. Of course, Hopper was there for moral support.

Mission accomplished!!

Woodland Park Zoo

So Mark and I decided we needed to get a visit in to the zoo before the weather turned. It was really great except there was this one kid that no matter where we went he was there too...screaming at the top of his lungs.

Our first stop was the gorillas. The keepers were tossing pumpkins and bananas into their dwelling. They weren't interested in the pumpkins but there was one gorilla that kept throwing bananas at another gorilla who decided not to retaliate but eat them instead.

Here she is looking at the Gorilla throwing the bananas at her...

And here she is eating one of the bananas.

Side note: Blogger is running SUPER SLOW so I'll keep the pics at a minimum. But back to the wildlife. Out of all the areas we visited we only found one animal that was interested in the pumpkin in his dwelling...the wild dog.

And my favorite. I called her Molly Bear. I'm sure that wasn't her real name but that's what I called her. She was totally playing to the camera. She looks like a Molly right?

Molly saying hello.

And Molly saying goodbye due to that screaming kid.

We really did have a great time. The weather was perfect and so were all the amazing fall colors. The only thing I wish we could have seen was the wolves but we'll probably drive down to the sanctuary in Olympia and get our fill there.

IT'S OVER!!!! (sort of)

I could not be happier that this election is finally over. No more political bashing YAY!!!! Even though I did not vote for Obama I am sure he will do a good job. Of course, with him in office I'll be seeing ALOT less of my hard earned money but whatever...that's a whole other tanget so I won't step on that soap box. But just because the presidential election results are in doesn't mean we'll know who our governor will be. I'm prepared for a repeat of the 2004 governor election where it took many months to finally determine who our governor was. So it's over....sort of.

BTW...I've got pics from our trip to the Woodland Park Zoo and I promise I'll post them soon.
