It was a hot summer here, with most days at 90 or above. I'm not complaining, but it usually meant that we preferred the pool or air-conditioned venues like the museum over you.
After that, we went to play with the Galapagos Turtles. B couldn't wait to see them and C thought it was cool that they were four years old, just like her.
We stopped to see a few more favorites on our way to get some ice cream.
Finally, we headed to see the Lorikeets. Miss C has been a fan of these birds since we took a trip in June 2011 to the Pittsburgh Aviary and three of them landed on her arms. Because these birds don't have a scheduled feeding time, it's hit or miss if they'll actually eat the nectar in your cup. In Pittsburgh, they had special times that they could be fed, which meant they flocked to you. One did land on Mommy's shoulder and hung out on her back for a while. Another one thought B's finger was food. B didn't cry, but was definitely startled.
In other news, C starts her first full week of school this week. She's going for a half day, every day this year. Last week she had two partial days, but the full five days starts tomorrow. I still can't believe that next year she'll be in kindergarten.
