The Golden Gate Bridge turned 75, so we... avoided bridge celebration traffic by going to the zoo, where we saw...

Giraffes (and storks):



Small children:


A T-Rex eating popcorn carrion:

A spider:

And some peacocks:

Tumbling Recital

Here come the performers...

And now the performance!

Bunny hop!

Elephant walk!

Crab walk!

Balance beam!

(He really can walk on a balance beam—he was just being a goof!)

Um, something about blowing out a candle!

Auntie Miran gave Anders some Imaginets for his birthday, and I frankly thought they might be a bit beyond him. But it turns out that he can do this stuff just fine.

First (or third) haircut

Soren has had his bangs trimmed a couple of times (because otherwise he wouldn't be able to see anything), but otherwise this is his first haircut.


...and after!

For the record, that forehead scab is not from the haircut.

The aftermath.

Cleaned up a bit.

The first of many school project Mother's Day gifts.

Not a bad start.

5 years!

To celebrate five years of marriage, I would have expected we would have done something fantastic. But, as it turned out, having your fifth wedding anniversary three weeks into a trial can interfere with celebration plans.

Still, we did have a nice dinner at Jardiniere. Including some nice cocktails.
