Makes me think of the Henri Mancini tune from the early 1960's.
I took my niece Allison and her two little ones Aidan and Dylan to the Wild Animal park near San Diego. It was the first time for all three of them. Dylan at 2 months was very good and slept through most of the day, Aidan had the most fun seeing all the wild animals. The highlights of our visit were the Hippo pooping, the grand lion that didn't roar, the giraffe with the long tongue and the gorillas that always give a great show!
I managed some pretty bad sketches except for this one that I rather like.

I had it all figured out today. Up at 7am, went downstairs and in the quiet of morning I made blueberry muffins, a pot of coffee and planned for a day in the studio painting. But after breakfast I ran over to my sister's to visit with the grandkids (hers). Before I knew it I was excited about going to the beach with my niece Allison and her husband and her two babies and my Annie. What a splendid idea it was and we all enjoyed the day. Except Aidan of course who was afraid of the waves. When he saw me start to sketch and paint he came right over with his paper and paints too. Soon frustrated because his brush and paints "don't work!!!" I let him use nina's extra brush and her paints.....which DO WORK. So, no studio day but what a great beach art day it was!!!!
