Too Much Fun

We had a very busy, but fun, day today. We went to Como Zoo and MN Zoo today. We did Como Zoo first. Jayne was scared of all the big animals that were really close to the glass, like the gorilla, lions, bison. It was really small. We are so used to the size of MN Zoo, since we have a membership, that we forget just how small Como is. Then we say the conservatory at Como. We started in the kids area. Jayne loved that. He got to spalsh in the water and crawl through a "tree trunk". He was scared of the animals in there too (they were statues). My favorite display was the sunken garden. There were so many flowers and the fountains were beautiful. Jayne liked looking at the plants and flowers too. By the end he was fast asleep. Then we went to MN Zoo. We saw the new Russia's Grizzly Coast exhibit. It is really nice. We got to see the sea otters, bears and wild boars. We checked out the rest of the outside trail and and the MN trail and finally came home. We will all be sleeping well tonight. What a great way to start our vacation : )

I have so many pics that I don't know what to pick : P ...So here are quite a few to look at:

I got these great shots of the giraffe and made a cute poster out of it. I will be adding this image to my Morgan's Bubble gift shop too.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
