Would you like a new ipod Touch????

You would?????

Well, I have one for you!

A kind donor has generously given us one to use for our adoption fund!!!!

I just added a chipin to the sidebar and if you feel so inclined, for every $10 donated to help bring our sweetie home, we are offering you a chance to own a brand spankin' new 8 GB, 4th generation ipod Touch!

No fingerprints yet!

Perhaps someone has been nice this year and would love to see a little apple logo peeking out of their stocking???  I'll leave it to your imagination of who might best enjoy it!

We will randomly select a winner on September 30th.

Oh, yes she can!

 Miss Zabi took off on her bicycle like a pro, after about 5 minutes of experimenting without the training wheels!  I guess now it is time to move up to a bigger bike for her!

Heather worked for a long time with Chicka.  As you can see from her body posture, she is terrified. I imagine having no depth perception, riding a bike would be a pretty scary endeavor.  It was so sweet, though - she ran up to her sister and said "you are AWESOME!!!!!".

Yes, I do believe these girls need a sister.  Soni put up with them for awhile, but wasn't overly pleased.  Ahem - do you see the tiara?

We went to the zoo, zoo, zoo - how about you, you, you?

Ooops - just couldn't resist a little Raffi, there!

Actually we did go to the zoo, and if you are wondering, don't bother visiting the Portland, Oregon zoo.  We went last year and were disappointed, but thought it might be better this year.

None of us really realized just how big polar bears are until we had this visual!

The unenthusiastic crew.

 Miss Zabi learned how to play rock, paper, scissors recently and really had fun playing it with ye-ye while we waited for our ice cream.

I think that PETA must reign there or something.  Don't get me wrong - I don't approve of mistreating animals, but for Heaven's sake, people.  SOME animals in sight would be nice!

I can't remember what these monkeys were called, but they were odd looking.  I guess their tails re-shape to form a cape when they fly from tree to tree!

The mama and her youngest littles.

MissE sat in the seat in front of us on the train.  She was giggling and snapping photo after photo - I thought of Chicka.  Uh huh.  I never saw the hunka-hunka sitting in the seat behind us.  Yeah, right, Sheba!

This is what I thought she was taking a picture of!  Chicka wanted to ride the train SO bad - then she fell into such a deep sleep that she, uh, drooled!  She will never forgive me for this public photo when she is older, I know!
