Earth Day in the Desert

Today was for Ben and me to take Orion to The Living Desert for their annual Earth Day celebration.

We made plans to attend the next star party of the Desert Astronomical Society. Nice folk.

Orion liked the bounce house. And possibly the giraffes. But not the vultures.

We saw Mexican wolves and a giraffe family. We watched a butterfly(not this one) emerge from its cocoon. Zebras, owls, snakes, lizards and cranes. Bobcats.

Poppet went too, but refused to tell us anything about this particular conversation.

We followed the long white road...
Sometimes it's good to go outside, spend some time with other life forms. Keeps things in perspective.
Tonight is for tired little boys to sleep and artist moms to make art.

Lovely photos, Lisa. That Poppet pic is great!

I've never liked vultures much either. As a child the ones in Disney's Jungle Book creeped me out hugely as I recall.

Awesome! Happy Earth Day! Love that Poppet/Lizard picture, that is so funny.

It's amazing how oversized buterfly wings can make Ben in the first picture look so much like his father.
