The Zoo

Yesterday hubby and I decided it was time for a trip to the San Francisco zoo. We wanted to take some cool animal pics for the baby's room, and to scope out the place for future trips with the little one. Plus, it just sounded like a fun idea. And it was!

Hubby took lots of excellent pics...

They have an awesome new grizzly bear exhibit, which lets you get pretty up close and personal with these beautiful creatures.

And these prairie dogs just cracked me up.

Here I am, with baby inside, on his first trip to the zoo.

I'm still plugging away at my Birds Nest Shawl, and I am still loving it. It's taking me forever, but I'm fine with that. I'm almost 2/3 done, so hopefully soon I'll be able to wrap it up and move on to some fast and rewarding baby knits. Meanwhile, I really do love working with this very soft yarn and this lovely, but fairly simple pattern.

Happy Fathers Day to everyone, including my honey, who is a truly remarkable dad!
