A SURPRISE day at the ZOO!! YIPPEE!!


 Today my husband surprised me with a trip to the zoo!!  It was 78 degrees so off we went!  FUN stuff...ALTHOUGH...pretty early on I began to see a theme with the animals...hmmm...sort of got tickled, but it seemed so many of them did not want to be photographed...even did not want to recognize the 10,000 people who also had the same idea!!  Thought you would get a kick out of my day at the zoo...well...what I saw of it! HA  ENJOY!!

OK...there WERE a few face shots...but it took awhile...begins with the bird that kept giving me the evil eye...


I told my husband that I wanted a hammock after watching this guy lazing around...LOOK AT THAT FACE!!

Yes...they look cute from afar don't they!!  Yep...but walk into one coming out your back door and it feels more like this.....


Yep...more like that!!





The elephants really had their EYE on me I tell you!!

At least the lions were a little more generous with their face time...


And, the tigers...:)

What a cutie!!

Who could resist THAT face!!

But..after a few hours I was pooped and we still had the mile walk back to the car...NO JOKE!!  So, I feel a little like this girl (the zookeeper said)...so off for a nap and back to painting tomorrow!!  PS...feel free to use any of these photos you want just show me what you did!! :)  HAPPY CREATING!!

Great pictures I wish there was a zoo like that closer to where I am. We have a small zoo but it is really bad not many animals and the conditions are no that great.

I LOVE my camera Carol...it is a Nikon P80...has been fabulous and is EASY to transfer photos...we'll talk soon!!

Krista...I know I LOVE the zoo...feel free to play with any photos I posted...I'm laughing...my hubby used to say all the sad things...like POOR bear...look he is going crazy cooped up...when we lived near a sad little zoo!! Now, when he says let's go to the zoo...I say...only if you don't made me sad about the animals! LOL
