I've had the girls enrolled in a "summer camp" that consists mostly of crafty projects and free play. Last Wednesday, the group of us went to Cat Haven, a conservation outreach facility that houses many types of exotic cats. The Haven is located just west of Kings Canyon, so it is a beautiful setting. We saw about 20 animals, heard their stories, and really had a great visit, even though we had already started on our current stretch of triple digit temps. My nephew, Scotty, came along, which was a real treat for the girls...some serious hero worship there!
Here is the cheetah. Look for her in a future Adidas commercial:
A black leopard who used to work in Hollywood but had a disturbing habit of pouncing on men when they turned their backs:
A plains lion checking out a juicy morsel:
After the visit, we stopped for a cold one at a little country store. Note that Abigail is now missing BOTH her top teeth...so sweet!
All in all, a great day!
AND we got word from the movers...our stuff should be here on Friday, the 23rd. Perfect!
