Coming soon to hillfamily.net — way too many pictures of Paris and Versailles!
In the meantime, please enjoy this short video:
This is the third of three videos from our time last week in California. After four years of putting business expenses on the Disney Visa, we finally had enough points for one(!) day at Disneyland. Here’s some video of our kids hating roller coasters.

The San Diego Zoo is a big one. And expensive. It’s cool, but not three-times-more-expensive-than-other-zoos cool. We’re bigger fans of The Atlanta Zoo, especially the bird show. All the same, here are some of the fun creatures we saw.
The original video had Bob Dylan’s Man Gave Names to All the Animals as its soundtrack (and it was perfect!), but YouTube didn’t like it and muted the sound. This second attempt uses a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s At the Zoo and Saint-Saëns’ Parade of the Animals.

Our neighbors started a big snowman this afternoon and most of the street joined in by the time it reached its full 16 feet and 1 inch. Time-lapse video:
