If you live in the Seattle area, and you have kids, or if you like cute but deadly things, then head down to the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium soon. They have tiger cubs!

Another fun fact about our weekend trip? It proved, beyond all doubt, that Alex has entered his know-it-all stage. He loved talking to the various volunteers about different animals, learning new facts, and most of all sharing all of the relevant (and not-so-relevant) facts that he already knew. If he had a different attitude, it would be obnoxious. But he’s so transparently sincere it’s adorable — at least to this father’s eyes!
