Saturday Photo Hunt #15: HOBBY!


This week's theme is "HOBBY".


The Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt theme for this week is HOBBY. Mom has many hobbies that she throws money at to include designing chandelier earrings, crocheting, sewing, and painting holiday decorations.

Do I want to showcase Mom's talents this week?

Heck no! Mom gets too much attention on my blog as it is ...

Back in October, grandad celebrated his 68th birthday with a trip to the San Diego Zoo with Mom and grandma. They took him to lunch at Albert's restaurant. Albert's is named after a gorilla who was incredibly popular: A SD Zoo icon.

In tune with a Halloween theme (October ... duh!), the zoo hired a hobbiest who enjoys carving MEGA-pumpkins. Mom, grandma, and grandad watched him carving Albert's likeness in a ginormous, huge-a-mongous pumpkin.

So, for the theme "HOBBY": I present "Albert the Gorilla Pumpkin"! Isn't this a furry cool hobby?

Hi Daisy,
Thanks for commenting on my site. I want to comment more on yours but sometimes blogger won't let me. That's a nice picture of the pumpkin carver. I can't join your links because my Mommy can't do pictures yet.
