A Teddy Bear Picnic and Some Sad News...

Eve and I went downtown tonight for a teddy bear picnic. It was SO cute. They did it at Foster Botanical Gardens (but I didn't get to visit the uber cool Cannon Ball tree this time). It was very well done. They had crafts and then a twilight concert geared totally toward the kids. The band played all teddy bear themed songs (who knew there was 45 minutes worth of teddy bear music out there?). There was even a teddy bear parade...very fun. Eve has now decided she either wants to play the flute or the harp. One of the harpist actually let the kids come up and touch the harp...she thought that was so cool.

I have forgotten to mention that there is a murderer among us here on the island. Someone murdered and mutilated one of the sea turtles on the Turtle Beach earlier this month. WHO DOES THAT? Apparently some jackass went out in the middle of the night and cut up one of the turtles that they suspect was sleeping under the full moon on the beach. BTW...did you guys know that those suckers weigh 200lbs?? He then left the shell half buried in the sand and threw some of the parts into the ocean. So, the fine is $10,000 and up to 5 years in jail for the criminal that committed this horrendous act...I hope they catch whoever did it...what an ass.
