The Going to the Zoo to See the New Red Squirrel Corner Day

The strawberries have had their own list this month. We went to see Brave- bit disappointed. Had such high expectations of that hair. PC took them to the cavehill advencher park. Yesterday I took them to the Zoo.
The new Red Squirrel Nook. Impressive- there are binoculars on those little ledges, and you look into a magical forestscape of tiny houses and leafy glades. Didn't actually see any red squirrels...
Penguins queue up to be fed. They wait patiently for the keeper to glide a fish into their grateful mouths, and then they toddle happily away leaving space for the next penguin. What? Penguins feed more humanely than strawberries?
It is turning out to be a gracefully mellow end to the summer. All the suns really want is lots of time outside with friends. I think we all know that the end is nigh!

Aw, we liked Brave! We did see it in Edinburgh, which was a good place...

Jane has red squirrils? Who knew???

I'm so glad you have some sunshine. Our boys are fed up with the sun now, although tomorrow they're visiting friends with a pool, so I guess they'll be glad of it then.

Grrr.. it seems I can't spell squirrel.

I like the sound of the Red Squirrel Corner. Little houses? NICE!
I liked Brave! I want a Brave doll of my very own.
The SUNS are so cute with their surfer boy hair. I like them!
We have a nice long weekend (Labor Day!) and I am busy sorting out my piles of stuff. I'm moving my "office" upstairs. It's really just where I keep all my junk.
Sending huge love your way, good Mags!

Yes, it's getting quite autumnal - the light, not really the temperature. Sigh.

My boys liked Brave but didn't love it. They like squirrels more than I do. You are having a lovely end to your summer. Enjoy it!

Lovely to read your news, and to catch up. I was lucky enough to live near a red squirrel habitat in Formby, so we would go and visit "Squirrel Woods" on a fairly regular basis. Here in France they are all red, but we don't often see them (except, sadly, squashed on the road from tme to time)
