I'm baaaaack

Sorry I've been a little incognito lately. We took a few days off, and I really took them off. No work. No blog. Just fun.

We went to the zoo, Grant's Farm, a ballgame and a bridal shower. We went swimming, took pictures, read books and played. We saw family members in from out of town, fireworks and enough food to feed a small army. We napped, lounged, and couch potato'd to our hearts' content.

All in all, it was pretty great.

Some notes:
  1. Zozo likes the goats at the zoo, and hates the goats at Grant's Farm. The goats at the zoo are lovely little creatures who might nibble on your shorts or your shirt sleeve, but all in all are quite passive and friendly. The goats at Grant's Farm are ravenous little beasties who will knock over a grown man in their efforts to get at a bottle of milk.
  2. Do not trust your cousin who, during a game of spoons, uses Spoon Trickery to win. And by Spoon Trickery I mean that he makes you laugh so hard you can't focus on actually playing the game, which relies on cat-like reflexes and fierce concentration for victory.
  3. Zozo enjoys playing with her toys by herself, until she sees you reading your own, adult book. At that point, all toys are dropped and "Go Dog Go" or "Dr. Seuss's ABCs" gets thrust at you. She then turns around and aims her little butt in your direction while backing up, forcing you to guide her into a sitting position on your lap for a little light reading. Do not attempt to return to your own reading after completing these tomes, for she's got a veritable library of books and isn't afraid to use them.
  4. People who think that the original Star Trek series with William Shatner is nerdy haven't watched them. They're really quite good. And Spock is sexy in his own logical, pointy-eared way.
  5. If you are married to a Star Wars/Star Trek nerd for long enough, you eventually become assimilated into Dork Nation. I believe I have achieved full citizen status.

That's it for now. I have some great pix from the last five days...I'll try to get them up reasonably soon.

Happy belated Independence Day!
