may_lyn mentioned I hadn't posted pictures lately, so here's a bunch of them: Laurel swimming after losing her first tooth, the messages she wrote on Easter eggs, a quick icing job I did on a cake, and a couple of photos from last week's first grade field trip to the Dallas Zoo. (We're going to the zoo again in a few weeks with my Cub Scout den, so I'll get better pictures then. And ride the carousel, since Laurel can't wait to ride the one there.)



Laurel swimming in the hot tub and showing off her first baby tooth lost, 20 February.


Laurel's message Easter eggs. They read, left to right: (back row) Happy Easter, I ♥ Bunnies, I am a cool cool cat; (front row) [bunnies] ♥ [Laurel], Meow, Bunnies are cute. Not pictured is one that read "Eat me Mom".


My quick n' dirty Arrow of Light icing job -- the tan was hand-tinted buttercream, the blue was premixed icing with a plastic leaf tip, the red was premixed icing through a large star tip, and the yellow was hand-tinted buttercream through a small star tip. I am lazy when it comes to free work.


Laurel and a friend sitting on a tortoise statue outside the Bird & Reptile Building at the Dallas Zoo, 25 April.


Laurel petting a guinea fowl in Travis & Zach's Bird Landing at the Dallas Zoo, 25 April. (The sun conure that repeatedly dived at my head trying to get a reaction out of me came out a blur in every photo I took until it kindly sat on a perch a few feet away and we made faces at each other. It later happily perched on a visitor's straw hat and appeared delighted with all the attention it got for that.)


The small koi in our freshwater tank seem to enjoy blowing bubbles at the top of the tank, so it was amusing that the large ones (3'/1m long) at the zoo did as well on a much larger scale.

EAT ME, MOM?! LOL!
What a DOLL--and I like her new haircut.

I am CRAZY about your koi shot--I want to make wallpaper out of it.

Do you have a larger version you could email me?

Re: EAT ME, MOM?! LOL!
She said the "Eat me mom" was so I knew to eat that egg and leave the rest for her. I only half believe that.

I like Laurel's hair much better now that the super-short bangs of December have grown out.

The koi shot is cropped a lot from the original, but I sent a copy your way. It was tricky shooting into the koi pool there since it's like an aboveground pool with an additional 18" high screen around the top, but I can get a clear shot of similar-sized koi next time I visit Vogon's work. The koi in the pool in front of the building he works in are so big you can see them from the seventh floor.

I have a lovely desktop now and will remember you each time I see it--thanks!

I suspect Laurel should find her other half, Hardy. She's a hoot!

At first I read, Eat MY mom! HAHAHA.

I see Laurel's got personality like her Momma.
I'm glad her bangs have grown out. ;)

That's one HUGE fish!

Did you enjoy the severe weather yesterday? I was on with WBAP pretty much non-stop ... pretty crazy stuff! :)

We were lucky, getting just the downpour and a very brief power outage. There are still power outages all over the metroplex; Laurel's school was running on backup power today.

I catch a little WBAP in the morning and around noon. Vogon's moved to listening to AM talk radio in the car, so I know WBAP as the station that has Rush Limbaugh at lunchtime. (:
