zoo with the family

so my dad and bro came into town and we spent a day at the zoo. i can't remember the last time we were at the zoo all five of us. it was a great day. it threatened rain the whole day but managed to hold off until we took a late afternoon lunch. it didn't rain again until we were in the car on the way home. perfect! a lot of the animals were pretty animated too. i was glad to see the hippos actually move. they are like giant sausages with legs. my only grievance with the toronto zoo is that it is sooooo spread out. maybe they were originally supposed to get more animals and then didn't. i don't know but it was a lot of walking. i mean, they don't even have penguins. but they do have a lot of other crazy things. check out the pics.

fun at the beach

i forget why but went to visit my mom at the beach and then tai met us up so we all just strolled the boardwalk like a large multicultural family and went out for dinner, had a lot of laughs and took some pictures. check em out.

jamie got a new camera

so i got a new camera. if you remember, mine broke while falling onto the road at 5am on new year's in montreal. ayham brought it back from the uae and i like it. it is the same model as my old one but upgraded a few megapixels and with a few more options and a giant three inch screen. anyway, i just took a lot of photos all week. here are a sample. there are more if you click here.
