Park and zoo

The weather around here has been absolutely gorgeous. Highs in the upper 70s, which is perfect for playing at the park and zoo. Yesterday I had to "yell" at a six-year-old girl who was playing on the baby slide after she bowled Ellie over because she was too impatient to wait until Ellie was out of the way... I told the girl there were other slides around for the bigger kids, and that Ellie was going as fast as she could. Then I felt a bit bad because the girl said her mom won't let her play in the other areas while her sibling was over there, at which point I realized that the girl's mom was completely ignoring her and instead talking with a friend on a nearby bench. But she did leave Ellie alone after that. (sigh)
And we sought some refuge in the swings :)
On a lighter note, we got a surprise look at some new additions at the neighborhood zoo. Two of the wallabies were carrying around joeys! Well, this one was actually being lazy, but that's better for pictures anyway. Apparently the joeys are about six months old already and they're at the point where they get in and out of the pouch now. They'll continue to ride with mom off-and-on until they're a year old.

And a trip to the zoo wouldn't be complete without an Ellie splash-fest. I got video!
