Calling all Cousins!

July 23, 2014

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope your week is going swimmingly. (I’ve always wanted to type that.) Cherry-Ot told me that tomorrow is National Cousin’s Day! And that means tomorrow’s the perfect day to see/call/hug/text/hang out with your cousins and tell them how much you appreciate them. You can even tag them in your Facebook post! There’s no better excuse to contact your cousins than to say how much you care about them. It will make them smile and feel really special…because they are! Do you have any cousins? I have a few cousins who are older and some who are younger. And I think they’re all awesome. Hi cousins!

Be sure to reach out to your cousins tomorrow. It’ll make them feel really good, and it’ll make you feel really good, too.

Bye for now!

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a great day! With summer in full swing, Dr. Duck Ling has been telling so many funny summer jokes. I just had to share them with you!

What’s black, white, and red all over? A sunburned Dalmatian.

How does the sun drink water? Out of sunglasses.

What do you call an unsure pelican? A pelican’t.

Where’s the coolest place to go during the summer? Indoors.

Where does a kingfish live? In a sandcastle.

What do you call a lobster in a bad mood? A little crabby.

We hope you like our jokes, and we hope you’ll share your own jokes on our blog. And don’t forget…have a critterrific joke-filled day!

A Cool Month

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and July has arrived! Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? That makes July the yummiest month ever! And when the weather is super warm (like it is in Kite Tree), ice cream is a delicious way to cool off. Plus, today is National Strawberry Sundae Day! If I could invent an ice cream flavor, I think I’d make one that tasted just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Or maybe I’d make one that tasted just like pancakes and maple syrup. Or maybe chocolate, bananas, pretzels, and caramel? There are so many options! It’s hard to choose. I really like those ice cream and frozen yogurt shops where I can add all sorts of toppings like sprinkles, cookie pieces, granola, and fruit, and I get to decide how much I want to put on. I guess in a way, I’m making my own flavor after all!

If you could invent an ice cream flavor, what would it be? Be sure to let us know!

Bye for now!

Seasonal Poems

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and now that June is coming to an end…it’s officially summer! Woo hoo! Beary Bruised had a really fun idea that we would write a poem about our favorite season, and so of course I picked summer. It’s the best. I hope you like my poem!

Summer
The sand on my toes.
The ocean breeze on my face.
The trips to the park.
The laughter with friends.
Don’t forget the sunscreen.
Don’t forget the basketball.
We’ve got a lot to do.
And the season’s just begun.
There are many more days…
To have a ton of summer fun!

What’s your favorite season? Be sure to let us know in a poem! We can’t wait to read them!

Bye for now!

Just Like Magic

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having an awesome day. Today at the hospital, we had a magician come and perform for us. His name was Tommy, and his show was so cool! He did all of these different kinds of tricks, like guessing which card I was holding and making the ring he was wearing totally disappear. And he even pulled a real bunny out of his hat! He said her name was Lollipop. She was so cute! As you can guess, Cherry-Ot was super excited. I think I’d like to learn some magic tricks, although it seems like it takes a lot of practice. One wrong move can ruin a trick! I guess the question is…do you believe in magic? Be sure to let us know!

And don’t forget…have a magic-filled critterrific day!

Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having a good week! Did you know that June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month? It’s the perfect time to eat your favorite fruits and vegetables, and it is a great time to try new and exotic ones you’ve never had before. What are your favorite fruits and vegetables? I really like grapes, blueberries, and cantaloupe, and my favorite vegetables are spinach, cauliflower, and carrots. Lily loves strawberries, nectarines, and watermelon, and her favorite vegetables are celery, green beans, and broccoli. Fruits and veggies are the perfect snack because they’re healthy and tasty. A pretty cool combo!

What fruits and vegetables are you going to eat this month? Be sure to let us know!

Bye for now!
