Discovery Park

It is now warm enough to visit the parks and today I had the idea that since little girl wants to ride her trike, the trails on the park would be great for that!

First on the list was going inside to the exhibit of the animals in the area. I was quite happily impressed that she was able to name the beaver, the woodpecker, and the puma (mountain lion). She did, however, miss the elk, the bison (which she called a yak), and the wolf (which she called a coyote). Still, pretty darn good, little girl!

She also had to say goodbye to the puma several times.

Oooh, look, this is soft!

Then we went to our favorite trail. It isn't very long and it ends with water fountains. We took her trike so that she could pedal the whole way and so that I could walk with her. This was the greatest idea known to man.

"Look, Mama! No hands!"

"No, Mama! You no walk backwards! You turn around and walk!"

She was very offended if I was not walking correctly.

Aria and the Wonderpets Save the Puppy

The phone....the phone is ringing.
The phone...we're almost there.
The phone. The phone is ringing.

There's an animal in trouble.
There's an animal in trouble.
There's an animal in trouble somewhere.

Oh no! It's a puppy!
He looks thirsty. He looks hungry.
But he's stuck on a box. He's stuck on a box
And he doesn't like iiiiiiiiiiiit
A lot.

Oh no! His dish is empty!
This is SE-WEE-US!
We have to help him!
There are no eats!
There are no treats!
There are no sweets!
That sucks.


And Ming-Ming too!
We're wonderpets and we'll help you.

Wonderpets wonderpets we're on our way
To help a hungry puppy and save the day!
We're not too big
and we're not too tough.
But when we work together we've got the right stuff.
Go, Wonderpets, go!

Oh no! That puppy is really stuck! Oh, you are going to get him off the box? that's great Ming-Ming.

Ming-Ming, you saved the doggy. But he still looks hungry. I know, we'll use this shovel to scoop food into his dish.
What's gonna work?
What's gonna work?

Now he's got food!
And he's soooo happy!

This calls for some celery!

and lettuce, cupcakes, chocolate, and pizza too!
