Animals and Fish

We decided it was time to take Merik to the zoo, he loves animals and was very funny there. We thought he'd be so excited and he was but it took a while for him to realize that the animals were real. He was definatley confused why the things he sees in books were huge and moving!

His absolute favorite animal was the Penguins. We had to watch them for 20 minutes because he just couldn't take his eyes off of them. They seemed to like him to. He would watch them jump onto the rock and he would begin counting 1-2-3 over and over until they jumped off again. He totally thought they were listening to him! It was hilarious!

We took the kids swimming one afternoon and had a great time! Darling little Karma was sporting her little bikini but HATED any water but the hot tub water. We don't disturb her comfort level or she lets us hear about it! Hmmmm I wonder if that will be a trait we see in her teenage years?
Merik loved swimming, especially going down the slide with Pat! He is a fish and forgets he can't swim so we had to watch him very closely.

Ahhh strut your stuff little one!
Pat is such a great dad and was so patient exploring every corner of the pool with Merik.
