Swimming Lessons

After a few weeks of sitting not he edge of the pool and watching the teachers I told Mommy I was ready to learn to swim. I watched a really nice lady, Miss Ashley, for eventually started to talk to her and warm up to her. Mom signed me up for Miss Ashley’s class starting the next day. When I got there, there was no Ms. Ashley! I was in complete shock and scared. I eventually went in but would NOT talk to the teacher, Mr. Jimmy. I tried swimming a few times but he made me put my face in the pool.


I swam to the wall and REFUSED to do more!


I spent the rest of the lesson riding on Mr. Jimmy’s back. He was so patient with me.


New Babies at the Zoo

What a great day for a trip to the zoo. There were all sorts of new babies born in the last few months. We found two baby bats!


The cutest baby elephant. I just wanted to watch her all day long.



There was a baby pygmy hippo but we couldn’t get a good picture of her. Instead we headed to the merry-go-round and went round and round until Mommy turned a nice shade of green.


On the way home I had a Frosty from Wendy’s. I loved it! That is, I loved it until Mommy said it was ice cream and then I refused to eat any more of it. Ain’t I a stinker!
