I've been productive!

The Habinyanja family group of mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Park, Uganda. Notice the green lips! I guess mountain gorillas like their lipstick green. :)

African safari wildlife

Took a day in Queen Elizabeth National Park on the way back to Entebbe from Bwindi, and saw many of the typical African wildlife and wanted to post a few photos!

Postcards from Uganda

I've been in Uganda more than a week and just wanted to post some of my favorite photos. I will give more information about each later, but... chimpanzees, mountain gorillas, the incredible Batwa (forest pygmy) Experience, and the sad state of their children at their homes, now, 20 some years after being evicted from Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

Christmas all over again :)

I love these two most precious humans!!! This is my new favorite picture of my kiddos. It is now my desktop on my laptop and tablet and phone! These photos are taken by and copyright by my daughter Savannah, check out her blog! As I'm leaving for Uganda shortly I don't have time for captions but… this was Christmas! It was great! Just a little too much pie :)
