Do they have enough room in there Dad?

We went to Seaworld. I’m generally torn on Zoos, but it is wonderful to see dolphins and whales up close, they’re amazing. Are the benefits of scientific study, the rescue work they do and increased public interest enough to offset keeping whales and dolphins in captivity? I dunno. People are pretty worked up over Seaworld right now, and I get it. The one sad polar bear they had made my want to cry. I do tend to think though that more people should also be worked up over slaughter of endangered animals on a larger scale by poachers than the ones in captivity. I’m not sure Seaworld is the biggest problem. We as an online culture tend to jump on bandwagons as they appear in our newsfeed. But awareness is always a good thing and who am I to prioritize change. 

Anyway, too deep for this blog. Here’s Grace making a face. She liked the dolphins and dismissed my moral arguments with a loud “bah!”

Polar bears are solitary animals and live alone in the wild, too! It would be chaos if they had more than one in the enclosure at once! :P

Ah, good to know. That’s why I refrain from being to judgemental if I’ve done zero research. That said, I doubt his enclosure was as satisfying as the actual arctic :)

Grace is on vacation from being my photo prop!

Well, not really.

Star Trek: The Adventures of Captain Grace!

Since these have more than ran their course, I thought I would do up a cover and make a little photo book for Grace’s room. Wearing my love handles with pride in this one. 

Captain Grace isn’t hiding so much as biding her time.

Who wants to get shot by imaginary Wyatt Earp?

She seems to love living on the edge!

Another big smile from the stairs.

Whoops. 

I accidentally took a nice, normal photo of Kristi and Grace.

Those feet are always wiggling to fast for my slow glass.
