Culture In Our Own Backyard

We have a Mommy raccoon with five babies visiting our backyard. They like to peak in the windows at us. This is a photo of one of the babies looking at us while we took its picture. I think if it had a camera, it would have taken a picture of us.

It was good timing because I had just taken Kal-El to an "animal adventure" program at the library. They had three baby North American raccoons there as well as South American raccoons (coati), a bear cat (binturong), a snake-lizard, and a chinchilla.

Kal-El is growing up so fast. It felt odd to see him sitting up at the front of the room with all of the kids while I sat alone in the back. On the other hand he says he likes to snuggle with me because I'm "very comfortable" and he want's to "keep me forever."

  1. You caught a great picture!

    So cute when they say things like that. What do they say? They are writing a memory on your heart?


  2. Waw ! It's cool ! We have to remember to open our eyes and we will see so much things, animals, flowers that we do not see when we have a fast life.

  3. Oh wow! He IS cute! And, so close! What a great experience.
