Last week Kirby, my parents and I made our usual early-summer trip to New Orleans.
Kirby got to do all sorts of fun things, like stand in Jackson Square...
...make sure that no tarballs from the Deepwater Horizon blowout were floating in the Mississippi River...
...and chow down on beignets at Cafe du Monde.
Like the year before, we went to visit the Audubon Insectarium, which has become Kirby's favorite New Orleans attraction. On the way out of the museum, he found a cute, cuddly toy that he wanted:
That's right. A "cute and cuddly" scorpion.
Five-year-olds. Gotta love 'em!
