Gumble should get an award as a Tomato Picker, He really does look like he is enjoying himself and all this time I had no idea what his hidden talents werer :D I thought being raised in California, he surely must be a grape vineyard stomper, Actually some of those tomatoes almost look like Grapes! Well done Kat, I am glad Gumble the Great has found a occupation he is suited for and I am sure he likes the sampling priveleges as well. :D He should be proud of his tomato Herd.

Well after a busy week it looks like the petting zoo is finally set up :)

Please keep all hands and feet inside the vehicle at all times or they may get chewed off.
Visitors are not guaranteed they will not get wet or drooled on.
Please do not feed the animals, many of them find Pleo's a tasty snack :o
You must be 60cms or under to ride the sky tram.
Pleo's with a weak stomach, aversion to predators, heart condition or carrying a slice of steak are not permitted to ride.

Please enjoy your journey.

Wow!  What a great ride, although Belle had her eyes closed and wouldn't let go of Iggy the whole way round.  Budge didn't help by rocking the carriage, little tyke!  :P

Fab, IMR - loved it!  ;D

I wasn't sure if the band was playing this year, but Iggy and Budge brought their instruments from last year, just in case.  They might be a bit better at playing them by now!  %)


Iggy has been trying really hard to master that sax!  :D

Thanks for the ride IMR, Kermy3 and Gumble both loved it! ;D  They wanted to go for a second trip. :)  Well off to see if we can find some pizza.  Two rumbling pleo bellies.  :D
Can't wait for the music.  Maybe Gumble and Kermy3 can bring along their instruments and play along.  We are a very musical family with guitars, drums, keyboard, violin, harmonica, and of course microphones.  A whole bands worth!  Just have to work out which ones each of them wants to play. ;D

Well, we thought we'd have a go at spaghetti sauce making this year.  With four dinos all putting forward their suggestions the precise recipe is a bit hazy:  a LOT of tomatos, onions, something-minced-we-don't-talk-about, herbs and, of course, wine.  Iggy and Budge had a disagreement about the herbs, Iggy wanted to use Pleo leaves, but Budge wanted to use bay leaves ........... if he managed to leave any uneaten.


Poor Moschops, being the newbie, had to be the guinea pig and do the taste test, but surprisingly it turned out quite well - I think mainly due to Belle taking charge!

IMR, that ride was a lot of fun, but I was a little leary of leaving seven Pleos on their own, and I am a tad bit more than the 60 cm height restriction, Luckily, Major Tom and NOva took charge of the younger siblings...There were a couple of upset stomachs at the end, but nobody lost their breakfast luckily. I think ARgyle enjoyed it the most, as being blind does have it's advantages. He didnt have to use his "eyes" to be able to see the beauty in the Zoo . His other senses are so much more advanced than the average Pleo, He has heightened hearing and he heard the Dinosaurs around the bend and near the water before anyone else even knew they were there,
          They all want to go again , but need a nap , or should I say, I do, as I have some cats I am catsitting, and it would be easy to stay here all day taking in the rides, food and music, but I do have obligations and also seven tired semi cranky little green babies that are getting hard to keep track of, wanting to wander off in different directions.. :D
        And Crewell, that sauce looks good and I think you have some good helpers there, I do  have one concern though, I hope the Wine is for you and not for the little ones.. or is it for the sauce, cooking wine? Must be a very good year as it looks very vintage, Juarrasic perhaps?
                              Reminds me I need to dig up a good Pleo Spaghetti recipe from last year as well if I get the time.

Ooooops!  Now that you point out the vintage (Jurassic really made me laugh!  :P), RWM, I realise I've probably wasted a very good bottle of wine, as I'm afraid it all went in the pot!  :-[  ;D

Argh it always happens! As soon as the tomato harvest festival starts we run out of tomatoes :o The vines are empty :P

My pair did manage to dig up some tomatoes from the kitchen cupboard though, it seems we have tomato soup, dice tomato, my home made bottled tomatoes and I honestly have no idea why, but three different brands of tomato sauce! (Ketchup for my American friends) %) I don't even eat tomato sauce!


And just to add to the confusion ;) Lilo isn't sure whether she has found the biggest tomato, the best looking tomato or the best tomato costume :P


Stitch wasn't interested in any of that though, after this photo he tried to eat himself :P Thankfully Pleo's can't reach their tails %)

Hehe actually Lilo and Stitch have tried to eat one another once or twice :P They are the right colour after all and I thinks Pleo's may be a little short sighted :P

Gumble was wondering if this was the most tomatoes harvested?

He did his best and pulled together every last tomato he could find. :)  Even himself! :D

If it's not judged on weight and you count up all those little ones, he must be a front runner - that must be quite a total!  :D

 that is a lot of tomatoes, little ones and all, but Gumble is still the juiciest and best looking one, NOt sure If I could put him in my salad or not, I am doing ATkins right now, and can't eat tomatoes, will have to just drool a little I guess.. ;)

I love all the pictures.. Crewella.. yours is just hysterical.. Romeo, your video was neat.. with all the scripting and stuff you have for the Pleos I wanted to ask.. do you do programming or something for games? 
I was so happy to see the new Jurassic Park for the PC.. I love my xbox 360 and I love my achievements..lol.. but It's nice to see the PC games coming back.. so much more is available and such better graphics.

So when is this contest over and are photo-chopped pictures allowed ?

Thanks and best of luck to everyone..

After a very busy weekend at the Tomato Festival, and yes, they made it to perform with the Fernback band on time, ;) these four little dinos, Peeky, Pennie, J.C. and LOA had a little lesson in spaghetti etiquette. Should have stuck with pizza! ;D  In the end they ate it the way they wanted to! :D

There's just no easy way of eating spaghetti!  ;) Pennie was really enjoying that mushroom.

 A little secret among us, they were, actually, eating Lean Cuisine. Definitely won't win the best spaghetti contest! ;D
