That is one photogenic elephant! I love all the smiles and looks of wonder. I loved the art in Day 1 too. Who could resist the actual texture of a Monet or Van Gogh? Drool. Can't wait for the next episode. :-)

Skeller,

Wait...are you saying that we did not come from monkeys? What kind of blasphemy is this? ; )

This morning I brought your Christmas card to work to savor. I love C's writing style. I really love all the boys. I am thinking about coming and kidnapping them so they can make me smarter. I will tell you when I get all the details worked out of my kidnapping visit.

You are my favorite.

Love, Becky

I've taken quite a blogging break (trying to behave and get my girls' schoolwork done), but have missed your posts! This is such a fun trip! I'm from Virginia, and have done a few of these trips with my kids and grandparents...so fun!
Your pictures are amazing, as always!!
