I think you will agree that Miriam is a budding artist. She chose to play organ instead of piano. I can respect that, though it would not have been my choice. She seems to be channeling Vincent Price at one point. Her little hand and head raise toward heaven as she plays very crunchy chords.

Every once in a while, Tyrone and I will break into song singing Bob Marley's "Buffalo Soldier." Buffalo Soldiers were black members of the US military. When Tyrone saw the video below, he got all excited about going to Yosemite National Park. Anyone who reads this post who is African-American might want to do the same thing after you see this video.

|Ivy, Miriam, Saige as meercats|
|Zsa Zsa Bird|
We went to Capron Park Zoo with Saige, Ivy, and Christin, and we had a blast. First a very bee-filled picnic lunch at the playground, then lots and lots of animals. Here are some of the animals we saw. There was a bird that reminded one of Zsa Zsa Gabor.
There was a Kookabura whose proportions were so weird that it looked like it could do a stand-up routine in the Catskills. Tyrone's favorite exhibit is the lemurs on islands. These islands are surrounded by water with ducks and geese and lots of fish. I love this sign.

|Pink cotton dress with smocking and embroidery, $5|
|Red and white dress with lady bug applique $3|
For $100, you could outfit a child for 3-5 years of warm weather clothing! Think about it!
There are some very precious children about to be born into our lives and they are boys. I'm going to hit those racks hard and get stuff for the next 2 years for them. Their grandparents are dear friends of ours, and we want them to have a full set of clothing for their grandbabies to wear when they visit.
Chara is growing up fast too. Miriam will be in 2T's next year, that means her cousin will be in 3's. I can really do well with their clothing and have gifts ready when birthdays come up. I was in there the other day and there was a beautiful spring coat with a fancy lining and pretty cut. I didn't want someone to buy it before the $1 sale, so I got it for $9.
Here's the skinny!

|"Miriam, Look at the turtle!" -Daddy|
As you can see, Miriam made some new friends. She always does.
We played in the sand box.
We went to a pond and fed the fish.
All in all, it was a really fun outing. It didn't break the bank. It was 1/2 day of fun. There were always clean bathrooms available. It wasn't far. Miriam was able to have fun. We had fun too.
We got to try out our new stroller that we got at Kids Echo.
She will sleep well tonight!
