Frankie loved all the water exhibits.

He followed all the fish as they swam around.
He really loved being eye-to eye with the fish.

Let me in there!

Clap Frankie!

Ohhh I love fish!

Frankie loves trying to walk now.

Veggie Bonanza!

Anaheim, Banana Poblano and Bell peppers. Roma, Big Red and Cherry tomatoes.

These beauties were delicious!

Peppers o' so good.

Okay this picture didn't turn out so great, but I sauteed eggplant, zucchini, onion, peppers and tomatoes with lemon thyme. Then I pureed parsley, basil and garlic with some olive oil. Add pasta, veggies and green sauce and you get a great dinner!
