beach trip

Well, it's been quite a week--a five-day trip to the coast with four kids, don't forget the prerequisite to any trip: a catastrophe at home (in this case, burnt up fuses and a broken breaker at the pump, thus no water for over twenty-four hours--and of course this happened on the weekend before we left--)

But--Yay! the trip was a blast and all the critters were still alive when we got home--we're up to four dogs, six cats, ten chickens, and five goats, and they were all waiting for us when we pulled in the driveway. Also good--we missed five whole days of heat wave in Central California, arriving home to 99 degrees (a far cry from the 115 degrees it was when we left.

So, who the heck is this Zoologist in Training? Is he or she related to The Animal Guy?

I may have seen them out on the road late at night, swinging a big snake on a stick and waving around flashlights? Is this some sort of weird ritual?

Wasn't it sad about the Crocodile Hunter guy dying?
