Self Serve Night

It was self serve tonight. The babies were all very polite and took just one at a time. Not like their mother. (Yes, Sweetie, I'm looking at you.)

Well, well well... look what we have here!

It's been a few years since the raccoons regularly visited us on the second floor balcony, but looks like they are going to restart the tradition!

Desperate = Cute

I had to laugh... we got home from dinner tonight and the crew was here and waiting for their snacks! One baby was so hungry he was trying to nurse as Sweetie was urgently trying to get our attention to take the pressure off. Of course I took a few minutes to take some photos before we put them out of their misery.

Hungry Hungry Hippos!

I had to go out of town for a day, and left some food, but not the usual amount. Tonight they came by EARLY and were very EAGER!

New Snacks!!

Why is it when I go to the grocery store, like I did today, that half of my cart is snacks for the raccoons? Crackers, grapes, dog food, and today I tried something new for them. Vanilla sandwich cookies. I would say they are a hit with the crowd.

Peanut Butter Crackers Does the Trick

This is the time I've been waiting for... when the babies feel comfortable enough to take food from me, and this week was it! One baby did it a few days ago, and today, all of them were brave enough to take a cracker. Maybe it was the extra lure of peanut butter. cute!!!

and Sweetie too....

The Cute....we haz it.

Gone to the Beach

It is HOT here in So Cal, so I was inspired to do a group shot of my kids...ready for the beach! Then I decided to add one of the raccoons to the group. Just FYI, the cats are really wearing the shirts and glasses, the raccoon (of course) is not. ;)

"If I make a funny face, can we come in??"

This little dude was cracking me up!!

At this point I knew they would totally come in if I let them, so thought it best to put the crackers in the ridge of the threshold instead.

Sweetie as usual, will take as many as she can grab!

P.S. I have not entirely searched the yard, but the toy has yet to be seen again.

A shiny new TOY!!

"Hey! What's this???"

"Can I eatz it?"

"No. Dangit. I'll take a cracker instead..."

"On second thought, it look like fun"

"I'll take it under the table so my brudders don't steals it"
