A rare sighting in the wild

With Big Guy off to Florida for the rest of the summer (tales of our adventure in St. Louis to follow), the little kids and I headed to the Zoo today. While there, we had a rare sighting of our favorite creature, the Parentis Daddymanus:

Not, of course, to be confused with the more garden variety Parentis Crunchyconmommyus, who is commonly to be found at the zoo:

We were surprised and pleased to get a sighting of this rare creature outside of his normal habitat of office, home basement or gym, especially on a Friday morning!

Thanks for the surprise!

Moms are great, but don't things just seem more fun when Dad is around! Their very presence makes everything seem better. :)

Definitely! And he was beginning to feel that this was the blog of a very nice widow lady and her children, since he so rarely makes an appearance here! So that was nice, too!

BTW, did you follow all of the Comic Con fun?? I saw, heard, or read reports of the Doctor Who and Lost panels. Looked like a great time!
