Sad update at the zoo

As we were expecting, the last wild bunny passed away this evening. Everyone is very sad. It is hard explaining to the four year olds about death. We told them that Gramps was going to take care of the baby bunnies for us. I hope that was a gentle way to explain it to them and won’t cause permanent scars later in life.

Mandy is very much like I am. When I get upset I cook, she bakes. So we have some wonderful desserts for Easter now.   We have 2 apple pies and 2 chocolate pudding pies.

She also gets adventurous and looks for new recipes.  Since we had so many apple peels, she looked for ideas to use up apple peels.  She found a neat one: apple jelly that uses apple peels and cores.

We will let you know how it turns out.  It is still cooling right now, so we are hoping that it sets up.

My big tough husband was very upset about the loss of the babies and didn’t like that the rest of the zoo was so sad. So he and I took a road trip this evening. 

Meet the newest member of the zoo:  Hop.  A cute little grey bunny.  He is settling in nicely and all the other zoo mates are loving having a new member of the family.
