Check out the baby panda!

You might have to try accessing the cam a few times, but it'll be worth the wait! :-)

1. Looks like an Aardvark, not a panda.

6. Yes, except that they had some kind of bug and fevers....
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 07:27 PM by greatauntoftriplets
They are 4 3/4 now....will be 5 on October 28. Big, tall kids. So smart they are scary. Their preschool teachers love them, say they know far more about cooperating than most other kids their age.

:D

Of course, I am biased.

On edit: They keep asking when they can go back to Washington.

8. They live quite close to one of the Chicago zoos....
and visit it quite a lot. As a result, they absolutely adore zoos.

They enjoyed the other sights (even though they didn't quite understand what they were about yet) and were shooed away from the White House a week ago Sunday because craphead was coming back from a bike ride. Fortunately, they only saw Secret Service guys on bikes...and their eyes didn't get polluted by visions of craphead himself.

But, at any age, Washington is a visually impressive city with all the big monuments and all.

:puke:
