Weekend With The Baptista's

Cesar's family came to play for the weekend. We had cousins galore and lots of fun, good food, sleep outs in the camper, a bonfire with smores, and puppet making. We also visited a small animal zoo where we were able to feed the animals carrots, lettuce and popcorn. Everyone was in on the feeding fun, both the tall along with all the short folks. We scratched Tulip the pot belly pig's tummy, she is on a diet at the moment and not allowed any extra food. She wagged her tail as fast as she could to distract us from her do not feed sign! Mary the sheep was a bit greedy with the carrots this visit. My favorite is the bull with his long, twirling blue tongue ready to happily devour whatever is offered his way. Hugo couldn't believe his luck that their were kids in the house for sooo long. He stayed up late, skipped his naps and slept in, a small miracle. About a half hour after our guests departed for home, Hugo passed out cold on the couch. Cesar quickly and silently carried our sleeping boy upstairs for the night. Peace and quiet filled the house as we snacked on leftovers from the fridge and watched Errol Flynn and Olivia de Haviland in the great swashbuckler favorite from my childhood - The Adventures of Robin Hood. I even scored a foot massage!
