Oh, Really? You're Kidding!

MOOSE! Is a reclining moose as impressive as a standing moose? I dunno. But I think it's cool anyway. And below, a porcupine going for a walk. Have you guessed yet that these are the pictures from the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo?

Iain enjoyed the 4-wheelers, and with his hat he really looks like the heir of Crocodile Dundee.

Meanwhile, he continues to pick up new phrases. Just now he said, "Oh, really? You're kidding?!" when asked about something.

But who can blame him? New experiences are coming faster and faster. Yesterday he stopped at the Little America rest stop on I-80 and enjoyed his very first soft-serve cone. He learned to stick out his tongue and let one of The Staff swirl the cone. He also learned that soft-serve comes in double flavors, so one need not choose between chocolate and "manila."

More photos of Iain at Little America, Iain at a rest stop on the border, Iain with Grandad's grumpy bear, Iain Iain Iain coming soon. We're spending today enjoying the novel sensation of being at home, not hot, and with practically nothing to do.

So far, that pleasurable feeling has prompted waffle-making, some rearranging of decorative accents, a thorough scrubbing of the shower door, and a coffee date with KP. See how we're wallowing in Being Home?

I haven't stopped by in a while because I'm horrible, but thought I'd tell you that I recognized the moose in a cage IMMEDIATELY. My kids swear his name is Frank. And that if you get too close he will yell at you to go away.

Apparently, he's a grumpy old man.

Totally homesick for Colorado now!!
