Weekend Bullets

  • Went to a certain blogger's son's 3rd Birthday party with Muffin Man (who says, "I love AB, he's my little brother.")
  • Cleaned out the garage. Cut down and boxed up all the cardboard boxes that have accumulated since last year, threw out a ton of junk, and donated everything that didn't sell in last year's yard sale. The yard sale where all the donations went to Katrina relief. Yeah. Procrastinate much? I can't wait for Thursday when we can put out all the recycleables for pick up.
  • Went to the Leesburg Animal Farm Park with friends of MM and their moms. Pony rides, wagon rides, puppet shows, AND feeding the animals.
  • Practiced dancing "We're Going to a Hukilau". I think I have the hand movements and the kaholos down pat, but I'm still having issues with my ami kuku.
  • And I'm sad for his kids, but is there anyone out there who didn't think Steve Irwin would get too close to the wrong animal one day?

AWWWWWW, MM and AB. Too cute.

Glad you got to the petting zoo once the weather cleared over the weekend! We'll have to go again... at some point, God knows when. :-)

MM is so sweet (and I hope his boo-boo heals nicely).

Sounds like a fun weekend.

And I totally wondering why they add freak accident to Croc Hunters death. As if he'd go any other way?

Nobody sure would have expected it to be a stab in the heart from a ray. It was probably one of the least "dangerous" gigs he'd ever done.

It's only the third recorded sting ray death. Weird. "Freakish" as our "prime minister" said. As I said on someone else's comments, in some ways he's better known in the US than here, although in recent years he did a series of ads for Aust Customs. And as it's been pointed out elsewhere Colin Thiele (author of many a good children's book) died the same day...

Kid L was very, very sad about Steve Irwin. I was not surprised that he died while working, but I would have never guessed it would be a stingray barb that would kill him.

Glad you had a good weekend.

I'm very sad for Steve Irwin's family. I seldom watched his show, but alot of the things he did when I did see it made me uncomfortable, in response to your comment about getting too close. It's so unfortunate that this happened.
