It has been a little cold and snowy here this winter.
That has not stopped Grant from playing at the zoo.
He made his own version of a zoo the other day.
Good thing it wasn't a real zoo too.
Mr. Zookeeper, Grant, had all of the animals sharing one big fenced area.
I think they were pretty happy with the arrangement from the look on their faces.
Mr. Zookeeper seemed happy about the situation too.
In typical boy fashion though........
after carefully making sure the animals were safe in their cage.....
Mr. Zookeeper proceeded to unleash Mr. Dinosaur into the cage.
Mr. Dinosaur proceeded to eat every last zoo animal.
Kind of a bummer for the animals.
It appears Mr. Zookeeper has a dark side.
The carnage and bloodshed left him unphased and possibly even secretly delighted at the mayhem he had caused at the zoo that day.
Watch him. He's a sneaky one.

Doesn't everyone sit around the house
in their slip and tights
and playing "GO FISH!"
Grace, do you have any train cards?
Ummmm, nope! Go Fish!
Grant, do you have any little red hens?
YEAH, I have two!!
Grant, do you have any shy little kittens?
Nope! Go Fish!
and on and on it goes.....
How do YOU spend a quiet Sunday afternoon??

The star of the week was allowed to bring in a pet of her choice
(and MAN are there a lot of pets for her to choose from).
She decided to take Tinkerbell Grace in to share with her classmates.
Everyone got to pat and hold the bunny.
Only one boy said he had a pet rabbit.
Two kids said they'd never touched a rabbit before.
I took in snacks so they could feed him/her.
We talked about rabbits and where they live in the wild and what they like to eat.
They giggled and TG hopped around and sat on his/her back feet for them.
He nibbled food and groomed and washed.
Thankfully, no bathroom performances while we were there.
TG put on quite a performance though......
I think everyone (including Tinkerbell Grace) had a good time.
especially this little girl.
We also took in (store bought) cupcakes for her snack selection as star of the week.
I apologized to the teacher.
Teachers hate cupcakes. They're so messy.
I left with the rabbit BEFORE the cupcakes were served.
Emily at Chuck E. Cheese's the other day.....
We were waiting on the other kids to finish up their tokens.
This kid is a lot of fun sometimes.
Love you, Emily!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kitty is a Diva.
He's your typical fun loving guy. He's a great cat.
This is a picture of them hanging out in our utility room in the basement.
Our family has expanded.
I've been waiting to see if any of the animals had issues getting along. We've been three weeks now and all seems to be well among the clan so tonight I am officially declaring that we are a household of three cats.....
and two dogs,
and two hamsters,
and a rabbit,
and four kids,
and a crab,
and a frog,
and several fish,
and too many snails to count......
but who's counting, right??
Welcome to our humble home, Bella.
Welcome to the zoo.
