Summer Fun and a Name

We joined the little people on the road swap so this summer so we need to take a softie friend on our trips and take pictures for the scrapbook we're creating. The softie and the scrapbook will be sent to our partners sometime in August. We created this little bunny this week to be our softie. Here she is getting ready for a trip to the zoo. We haven't been able to come up with a name for her yet so we're looking for suggestions. She's made from patterned fleece with a pocket on her belly and hearts on her pocket and on her bum too! I think she needs a carrot in her pocket and a good name. Nature Girl tends to name things by colors or object name so she hasn't been very helpful unless you like Pink Blue Bunny as a name. We need some help. Do you have any name suggestions for our rabbit friend?
Here's the bunny taking a rest under a tree at the zoo. It was only in the 50's at York Wild Kingdom. It wasn't very summer like, thank goodness we packed coats!
Nature Girl, her Grandma and the bunny all went for a ride on an elephant. The elephant's name is Lydia and Nature Girl loves her. This is the third summer that she has taken a ride on Lydia so it seems to be a bit of a tradition now. We tucked our bunny friend in her coat so she could go along for the ride. This was Grandma's first ride on an elephant, Papa rode last year and I rode the year before that. I think it's Daddy's turn next year!
Since we were in York Beach Maine we walked across the street to take the bunny to the Atlantic Ocean. She sat on this rock with Nature Girl for the pictures then bounced back into the backpack so she wouldn't try to take a swim...it was way too cold!
We had a good weekend and crossed off three items on our summer fun list. Zoo...check, beach...check and see Wall.e movie...check. By the way Wall.e was very cute and had a good message for nature lovers.

Love your bunny - what a cute idea to take him/her on your travels over the summer. What about a name like "Explorer Bunny" of "Adventure Bunny" or a name to tie in with your city/town? I am sure Nature Girl will think of the perfect name.

We love York Zoo in Maine. I like to take the kids to the zoo and then walk over to the beach. It's a great day trip.

I think "Pink-a-Blue" bunny instead of "peek a boo". Cute bunny, whatever you name it. Glad you are having a good summer.

Christy said...

The bunny is very cute. I love the travel softie/scrapbook idea.

I vote for Barb's suggested name, "Pink-a-blue".

How about Huggy Bunny?

It looks like you all are having way too much fun! A ride on an elephant? I think I need to put that on my bucket list! :-)

Happy 4th of July to you and Nature Girl.

It looks like such a fantastic time!! I love your bunny and I like the name "Binky" I think it suits here, but whatever name you com up with I am sure it will be perfect!!

Looks like you got some great pics for your scrapbook. I am not good at thinking up names or titles for things or anything like that. Our swap friends don't have names either. I could let my son pick the names, but he would probably pick something oh so sophisticated like, rhino-ey and lioney. Or totally off the wall like when he named his stuffed dino Very, Very Young.
