Commander Oscar with a suit

Today was Oscar’s second visit to Let’s Read! Let’s Move! at the U.S. Department of Education. This is a special series held at the dept to encourage reading and healthy habits during the summer.

And we’re back!

There was a hiccup, but I’ve changed hosts and now is back!

I am using a default “skin” until I can get some other things set up, and you’ll notice that it’s been more than 6 months since there was a post. So I’m going to try and put up some back posts to catch up.

I am also working on adding the password. That’s actually my top priority. It will be added soon.

We took Oscar to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live in Bristow VA (at the former Nissan Pavillion). We had a great time, seats in the fourth row, and we got to do the backstage VIP party where we met the gang, including DJ Lance Rock and Biz Markie. Check out all of our pics

Let’s go to the Zoo

Following our birthday tradition, we took Oscar to the Zoo last Friday. The overcast weather made it perfect for not sweating to death. We didn’t seen any elephants and our favorite (the red Pandas) were pretty docile… but that didn’t stop us from having a good time. Yes, it’s hard to compare to the wilds of the South African bush (ah-hah, ah-hah!) but we enjoyed seeing the animals. Oscar took some pictures too.
