One of the great things about being a rabbit is that even though I turned 18 a few years ago, I still get to live with my mom. I stay home all day munching the everlasting carrot Uncle Nathy-Boo gave me for Christmas, playing with my brothers and sisters and hiding in Mom’s bed. On really adventurous days, I even hop down the hall to visit Malaria and Giraffe in the living room. But the best adventures are when my mom takes me on trips with her.
We’ve been all sorts of places together. This month, we went to San Diego. Last month, we went to Las Vegas and Monterey. The month before that, I got to ride on a train in my own little cheese-shaped seat and my mom took me to my first Packer game. We went to Uganda, and Amsterdam, and Iowa, and Portland, and Washington, D.C. We even went to Lake Tahoe. And that’s all this year!
My absolute favorite trips are the ones where I get to see my aunts, my cousins and Grandma and Grandpa. That happened a lot this year. We went to Grandma and Grandpa’s house in Wisconsin four times.
I love Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Gibby and Foo Foo are always there to play with me. We play hide and seek a lot with my mom and my Aunty Munchkinhead. Sometimes, Aunty Alfred is there and she brings my cousin Timmy Bear along. Then they get to play hide and seek, too. If we’re really good little rabbits and gibbons and bears, we get to play board games with our moms and Grandma.
And when nobody’s watching, we go exploring in Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Even though I grew up there, and Gibby and Foo Foo still live there, the place is so big, there’s always lots to explore. There’s a fabulous slide in the hallway, behind a little square door. It’s so much fun! We climb up the bookcase to the door, sit down on the ledge, slide down the ramp screaming “weeeeee!” and then there’s this huge drop of and we plop right into a pile of fluffy clothes.
Gibby loves to hang out in the bathroom. With the poles holding up the shower curtain and the long neck on the part where the shower water comes out, there’s lots of things for him to hang on and stretch his long arms. Foo Foo and I hop along the hallway floor and peek through the railings above the stairs. It’s a nice little place to watch the activity below.
And when I really want a lot of fun, a lot, a lot of fun, I scamper off to Grandma and Grandpa’s room. They have this giant bed with pretty, soft blankets on it. It’s the perfect place for a bunny like me to work on my hopping skills. Sometimes I hop so high, I can even pretend I’m a bird!
My mom says we’re going back to Grandma and Grandpa’s in a few weeks. I can’t wait!
