Priya and polka dots

This weekend we made a trip to the zoo to see the new baby elephant, Priya. She’s the smallest one in the photo, standing next to her half-sister, Kenzi. One of the larger elephants is her mom, Ellie, and the other old girl could be Pearl or Donna–not sure. We are convinced that Priya got her name because fans of The Big Bang Theory stuffed the naming ballot box!

Afterward, my husband and kids went to the movies. Since I am not a fan of Iron Man, I stayed home and made this fleece blanket–another graduation gift. You can read how to make them here.
