Bob the blue Beta died last week. We had him for 2 years!
So last night we stopped at PetSmart and got 2 new fish. They are a little more active than Bob. Zoe picked out the "goldenfish" immediately and didn't want any other fish in the store but that one. Pete said it needed a friend so we got a purple, stripe-y one, too. They are both cichlids. On the way home, Pete asked Zoe what we should name the fish. At first she said, "Zoe. Z.O.E." and he said, no-that's your name. What is the name of the fish? And she said "kitty!" And she said it was the name of the goldenfish so I asked her what she wanted to name the striped fish and she said "elephant!" Constance came over for dinner later and I told her to ask Zoe about her new fish and what their names are. And she pointed to them and said that the goldenfish was called Kitty and the purple fish was called Elephant. So that's that.
I bought this inflatable ball a few months ago when warm weather was just a dream. We have had a very sunny weekend so I got out Zoe's pool and cleaned it up and then today I had Pete blow up the big "hamster ball" and let Zoe roll around in it. She was so excited! I took some video, but I used our little Nikon and the sound is terrible - there is a very loud windy sound and screeching. It takes awesome photos, but I had no idea the video wasn't so great. Next time I'll use my fancy.
Look at the static electricity in her hair!
