Zoo Wonders

For all you Simper's who check our blog, you will greatly appreciate this. We ran into someone very dear to our hearts at the zoo yesterday. Can you guess who from the picture?
You never knew you had such a famous Uncle, did you?!

We also saw a very noisy tree full of birds. I'm waiting for my dad to let me know what he thinks it was. My dad is an avid bird watcher. It's a gift and love he's always had, and he's dedicated a lot of time to photographing thousands of birds! They are beautiful photographs, and I guess you can say his hobby has made me a lot more aware and curious about these feathered friends too.
And then we went to the part of the zoo where the Apes (NOT monkeys!)... to quote silly songs with Larry, "If it doesn't have a tail, its not a monkey... it's not a monkey its an ape... (great song by the way!) and look at the strage apes I found! They said "Sisters" on the sign. They were found wandering loose in the zoo yesterday. Someone really should find and contain them if you ask me!

My dad informed me that the birds I saw were Juvenile European Starlings. Just in case you were wondering. :) Thanks Dad.

Uncle Mark? And he's dear to your hearts? Not that he isn't dear to mine...

So our blog really did get stalked by someone we aren’t comfortable with- and instead of going private, we are just changing some settings and our blog’s URL. Please switch it to: gregpluscamille.blospot.com so you can still follow our blog!
