Back to the zoo

We did not finish work as early as we'd hoped, but we did finish early! That volumes of Sherlock Bones was so tricky that we figured we should go over it a third time before sending it in. Oh man, it was a tough volume to translate.

Anyway, back to our trip. As I said, much of our time was spent playing with Logan. One time, while the grown-ups were all out talking, he brought me into the bedroom that Athena used until we moved, and started playing with toys. He had a toy truck that he was playing with, and for some reason I picked up a little toy cat...which Logan decided to start trying to run down with the truck. I kept making the cat dodge, but one time he was too quick for me, so I had to leave the cat on the floor because it was injured. Or at least the idea was that if you hit a cat with a truck, it gets injured. I think Logan figures it doesn't matter if it's just a toy, because he didn't let it faze him at all.

Instead, he started playing with a little toy house. I suggested that the cat might like to play in the house if it was feeling better, and if he apologized it would feel better. So he repeated after me, "I'm sorry for hurting you," (only of course it didn't sound like that), and the cat was healthy again! So he took the cat...and started ramming the house with it.

The next day was the really important part of the trip. Collapse )

Today I'm thankful for getting to go to the zoo with everyone, getting to see the baby tigers, getting to see the black-footed cats, finishing work early today, and having a couple of days of free time on our schedule.
