Today we got to see Kevin and Becky’s new place. It’s quite the undertaking. Becky’s potato soup was a haven amid the desolation. (Their whole little apartment felt havenly, actually.)

The zoo was also lots of fun. Elizabeth and I are feeling pretty sick now (sorry Kevin and Becky), but our family had a wonderful time together. The hippos were particularly obliging, putting on a show that ran the gamut from sweet to terrifying (with plenty of funny in between). I can never watch a hippo without picturing that old Chinese zoo keeper who herded them with a blade of grass. (Mom, for what it’s worth, there is a video on YouTube about a hippo that lives happily in a couple’s lovely home.)
