What can I say?
Here I go again, apologizing for being so late with part 2 of our zoo adventure.
So lets head straight back to Lowry Park Zoo, shall we?
The sweet Kenya Impala
I could not get them to come closer or turn for me.
Much to my regret.
This camel give rides to the children.
We visited the this area late in the day. The shadows are telling aren't they?
By then, the children's field trips had left, so this camel was done for the day.
I did get this camel to give me a lovely smile.
Not sure if he was just happy not to have more riders or if he liked me taking his picture.
What do you think?
I am over the moon with my 55-300 Christmas gift from loving hubby.
Love the close up shots I can get now.
While I truly appreciated each animal for their uniqueness and God given purpose,
I feel in love with the gentle giraffes, shown next.
Meet "Rudolph". I think I mistakenly called him "Randolph" previously!
I loved feeding him so much, we went back a second time just before the park closed
to feed him some more.
Think he likes to lick hubby's fingers too!
Everyone plays nicely here.
Don't you agree?
Celebrating our wonderful day at the zoo with our favorite,
root beer floats.
(BTW there is a fan going inside the ice cream shop that is playing havoc with the
I love retirement, spending my days with hubby, and root beer floats
to celebrate how blessed we truly are.
Always, always we thank the Lord for His mercy and blessings.
A splendid ending to a wonderful day,
root beer floats and watching and hearing the music from a carousel.
Yes, if it had not been just for children (or adults standing to hold a child), I would
have been on that after my float. Love carousels.
Oh gosh, I know this was long with many photos.
I will make up for it on Friday with a lovely, simple
"quiet inspiration" post.
I am off to a grandson's ball game, plus, I want to wish my other grandson
Georgie, Happy Five years old today!
See you Saturday for your party!
taken just two weeks ago at his sister's ball game.
Happy, Happy Birthday to you from Grammie and Grampa Terry.
If I did not get around to visiting before you read this post, I am late with some of you,
but will catch up.
I value each of you who takes the time to read my little blog and leave a comment,
either here or sending me emails.
From my heart to yours, may your day be blessed.
