All about fish

Allen's cough was pretty bad today, so he and I stayed home. With a note on the shop door that we were open by appointment today, Allen and I were able to snuggle in Mommy's bed and watch Finding Nemo ... four times. At least. I lost count.

We stayed in our pajamas for most of the day, until just before Daddy got home. Then we got all pretty/handsome for Dad, and decided to go out to eat (since I hadn't been downstairs much, I hadn't taken anything out for dinner). We went to a restaurant that we've been driving by for two years now, but I've never eaten at. It's called Gilligans, and it's probably going to be a regular place for us ... primarily because there are fish tanks next to all the booths. So we got to eat with Nemo and Marlin ...
Here's a lousy picture (stupid camera phone) of Allen eating his corn with no hands.

And here is a short video of Allen "eating" his corn. Just before I started recording, he told us he was "trying to sing the corn song."

And then there were ...

So, we lost another fish tonight before dinner. We were so perplexed. Until we went to Wal-Mart and found out that we were feeding the fish the wrong food and not treating the water correctly. That's the bad thing about being given free fish and not asking what kind they were before being sent out to purchase all of the necessities.

After this brief, Wal-Mart quality, education on fish we decided to purchase a few new ones along with a new tank and lid. Here they are ...
As we were checking out tonight I pointed to the orange fish and said to Allen, "What should we name that one?" And he said, "Orange Paul." At least this time they're all different colors ....
