ahhh, the zoo…

we took jasper to the zoo for her first on-foot excursion – we didn’t even take the stroller!  it was a good weather day – overcast, barely there rain and around 76 degrees – so we took last minute advantage of such a day and ran to the zoo about an hour before it closed 🙂

jasper ran around picking up leaves, trash (ew…), dirt and bamboo but she entertained us as well as many passer-bys…she was quite the crowd gatherer – people would just stop to watch her…why?  cuz she is just that interesting 🙂

animal-wise:  other than the flamingos, ducks and the bird aviary, which are all at her eye level, she was too busy looking at the ground to pay much attention to the other animals but that is fine by us…

high tech…it is the weekend thing to do…

we have found a new toy!  my mp3 player is the new black, apparantly!  i put an earbud in and jasper puts an earbud in (or against her cheek or somewhere in the general vicinity of her ear) and we listen to the music…i don’t even have to put it up to her ear for her, she knows exactly what to do with the little thing…sounds like fun, huh?  it is but what really gets me is when she starts to dance! and dance she does…

jasper is wondering where jon’s earbud is…

she has appropriated both ear pieces here and she is getting groovy with it 🙂

running girl…

no longer is jasper content to be held for very long or sit in the stroller – she is a girl with a mission…i dont know what that mission is and i am not sure she knows either but it is prime!

we have been going to the park in the afternoons so she can run around and explore her new skill – it is great fun to watch her but she is so not interested in holding my hand any more either…in actuality, when i say “watch her”, i mean, “herd her” – away from such pitfalls like Big Mud Puddle or Scary Parking Lot or Very Large Lake – you know, those kinds of things…
