We had a great time at the zoo on Sunday. We met up with some good friends and their two adorable kids. I'm kind of sad that they've decided to stop having babies, because they could have populated the world with cuteness. It was wonderful to get out of the house and be around people again.

At the Orangutan enclosure we saw a baby climb up and try to bother its sleeping daddy. Daddy Orangutan reached up and grabbed the baby's hand, held it and went back to sleep. The baby settled down quickly and fell asleep too. Last night after the 3rd or 4th time of getting up with Madeleine, I brought her to bed with us. She was all kinds of fidgety for awhile, and then all of the sudden asleep. I looked over and noticed that Ryan had reached out and held her hand and they were both sound asleep. Just like the Orangutans!

Here is a fun video from a few days ago. Please ignore the messy, messy play space.

Speaking of Orangutans..
Wicker-basket of baby = Barrel of monkeys?
