Of course this picture of Abby with one of my penguins "Scrubby" is my all time favorite!I think that baby Emporer penguin is showing off to the smaller one!
I wonder how that penguin got stuck with penguin nursery duty that day?!
Don't they look sweet?!
I just think these two penguins look all shy and cute like its the first time they've gotten the courage to introduce themselves! :)Frans Lanting is an awesome penguin photographer! I have some nice prints of his hanging up in the girls room! I also have a book of his work, I think Joel gave it to me! Of course my favorite penguin movie is "March of the Penguins" which I own (thanks Dad!). Katie and Abby like to watch the part where the babies are born!
Some of you may be wondering exactly when and how I started liking penguins. The truth is I'm not sure how old I was, I just know that I was young and my grandma had taken me to the zoo and the first exhibit was the penguin tank. I just loved those birds as soon as I set eyes on them and have ever since! Maybe I felt a instinctual bond with them and their klutzy appearance on land!
One of my life long dreams/goals is to pet a penguin! Ever since I saw Mr. Rogers do it I haven't stopped dreaming of cuddling one of those cute, friendly guys! A dream vacation for me would be to go to Antartica and see the huge Emporer penguin colonies!
So everyone have a very happy penguin day!
