Asking Your Opinion

As most of y'all know, in fact I don't know who doesn't know, Kimberly is due in the very near future (note the counter to the right).

As the great and dreadful day draws near we still have not decided upon a name for this child. We've tossed some names around, mine being rejected more often than not, but still have not come to a decision.

If you'll noticed the top right corner of the blog has a poll of the names that have been brought up most often. Let us know your opinion, and feel free to share your thoughts why you like or dislike any of the names.

Cameron Park Zoo

Grandma - check

Okay, Kenny is ready to go to the zoo.
 Our first visit was to the monkeys. They were about the regular business of the day.
I had mixed feelings when I saw this eagle at first. This particular eagle has been crippled and can never return to the wild, so that's why they keep him here. He has a companion who has been likewise injured by poachers.
I called National Geographic and wanted to sell them this picture, but they laughed at me and hung up. I still think it's a great shot.
I'm not sure this picture needs much more of an introduction.

You can sorta see the electric fence keeping the bear contained on its small island.  There was a constant humming and crackling, that seemed to be irritating the bear, for he was  pacing back and forth constantly.
This was Kenny's FAVORITE part of the whole visit. He would run back and forth, in and out of the tee pees. His face was screaming delight.
This slide was a clear tube that went through the otter water. I think he went down this slide 6 or 7 times.


We moved on to the sleeping crew. Apparently from 10am until 2:30pm is siesta time.
We eventually found some more active participants, and by active I mean not sleeping. The giraffe's just stood there eating sticks.
No zoo trip is complete without a picnic to wrap things up.
I'd show you the pictures Kenny took, but they are the type of pictures that I think only a parent appreciates.
