Llamas and learning the right way

We spent another gorgeous Saturday at one of the parks in the area - Willow's favourite is the Josephine Gardens/Brandywine Zoo park... where we found:

Llamas! Willow went around telling other little kids (and a few adults) that those are, "Llamas and you get apaca (sic) wool from them." Yes, she is three years old and I am teaching her all the right stuff - she already wants to learn how to knit. If I wasn't certain she would put my or her own eye out, I might seriously consider it. So, in the meantime, I show her the much more benign (and less pointy) crocheting. Basically I crochet her a square and she pokes the crochet hook in and out of the square. It's a start.

Back to the park:

Josephine Gardens is bordered on one side by the Christina River - a fine place to feed ducks and geese. I'm not quite sure why it is called the Christina River when everything else around here is called 'Christiana.' Here is a pic of Andrew and Willow on the now-defunct railroad:

Here are some goofy girls:

And my squinchy-eyed beauty. Seriously, I don't know what is up with the nose squinching.
