They recently had babies so they are in a different habitat for some reason. When we went to see them, the hall they are in was completely deserted and dead quiet. Avyrlie crept up close enough to see that the crocs were in there, but wasn't coming any closer.
Outside Avyrlie had a ball playing Whack a Bug. Kleenex had a promotion for their anti-viral tissues with a couple games and a mascot. Avyrlie wasn't about to get close a life size germ ;)
Ian complained a bit on the way, but had a great time. He enjoys helping out and passing out drinks and works pretty hard for his Mountain Dew reward. Probably didn't hurt that there were a couple girls riding the back of truck either ;)
Check out the after parade entertainment:
The guy below does not help me much.
Unless you count helping me eat strawberries. As Avyrlie was decorating the peanut butter cookies with chocolate, Mr. Quail and I were having a stare-down.
He slowly worked up the courage to hop down to my potted strawberry plant that sits right below the herb box. I finally shooed him before me managed to make off with the good, but I'm certain that scratching sound last night was he and his buddies triumphant return.
Considering that his buddies are a flock of tiny baby quail, I can't bring myself to be too upset :)
I actually picked a spot and waited for about 20 minutes to snag a good pic of the babies. Only when they finally moved in position and I pressed the shutter to snap the long awaited perfect pic, did I realize I had forgot to put a memory card in :(

This is one of two camps he's doing this summer. It's each Wednesday four three weeks as an intensive spring speed and agility skills training. In July he has a week long camp focused on football but still and speed and agility rather than a padded camp. We haven't been too impressed with the camps at BYU and the U the past couple of years. Hopefully this will be more of a focus on the skills Ian needs. Next year we'll send him off to a padded camp during regular baseball season.
