It's pretty nice to see that reaction in someone. Elliott, on the other hand, gave me a look like I was seriously lacking. Somehow I disappointed him greatly. I guess he was expecting to get picked up by someone a lot cooler than his dear old dad.

The Wombats' Favorite Foods (in descending order from favorite to least favorite)
- Sweet Potato
- Apples (McIntosh)
- Butternut Squash
