Another Yaya Roll

This is the Yaya roll compiled from the time the "Kates" took the Furman girls to SNOG:

All I can say is brilliant!

Speaking of the Aquarium

The girls and I spent a wonderful day at the aquarium a few weeks ago.  It was fun seeing them talk to the animals.

And they (especially Aliza) found it important to support a mama penguin and her baby:

Wrapping up my Mum's Trip

These are the last few pictures I haven't yet included in "Baba's Trip to Dubai Saga" currently being hosted on my blog.  They are a bit random, but necessary... quite necessary.

This is what it looks like when you try to take a picture in an underwater tunnel:

This reminded me of my days at Sky Ranch as Singing Otter

(I couldn't get into the exhibit with him, so I'm sorry that I'm not in the picture too.  You'll be quite happy to know that the otter and I carried on a very long and extensive discussion on the difference between otters and beavers.  And he mentioned that he considers it an animal right violation if you get the two species mixed up, so watch out.  You've now had fair warning.)

This photo montage of Norah is especially for my mum because she bought each of the kids something before she left.  This shirt is what she got Norah:

At the Creek

....In continuation of what mum and I did while she was here....  (I could write a whole travel book with the amount that we packed into our week together)

Thing #566: We got to visit the creek with Etienne and enjoy the sunset together.

Before the sunset:

I really like those pictures on my mum.
She's a beautiful lady!

During the sunset:

All that glow in these pictures is from the humidity.

Traveling with lots of Cords

I had an idea after I saw this on Martha Stewart's website (I know, what was I doing on Martha Stewart's website?.... that will have to remain unanswered...):

So cute!  But I didn't have a tea or dish towel, so I created my own out of some fabric.  Thanks for the inspiration Martha!

Perfect for holding all of those cords and electronics you have instead of letting them be loose in your carry-on!

"Boo boo Kate"

That's what Norah says when she has hurt something.  Around here, we make sure to check on boo boos.  Whether they are our own, mommy/daddy/one of the kate's or a stuffed animal's.  It's very important to tend to your wounds and we did a round of tending this morning:
