Can I Have Some More?


I love this set of photos featured on the Flickr blog by Vincent Bousserez.

My little girl Olivia is just about the greatest thing ever!

It’s hard to believe she’s nearly 8 months old!

Every year, Kim and I have a tradition of carving jack o’ lanterns.  Typically she makes a happy one while I make one involving sculpted teeth in some way.  This year, Kim’s sister Kristin joined in with the fun!

The Vampkin – by Me!

On Saturday we went to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha for what has become our typical annual trip. This was Olivia’s first time at the zoo, and though she didn’t seem to really pay much attention to most of the animals, she was very fascinated by the aquarium – especially when the large schools of fish would swim overhead.

The two-toed sloth.  This was by far the most active we’ve seen the sloth.

I have many, many photos from the Henry Doorly Zoo over the years. Click here to see my gallery of Henry Doorly on Flickr.
