Faces of the Zoo

Last week we celebrated our son's 11th birthday.  We enjoyed a family day at the zoo to celebrate his special day.

Below are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

An Asian elephant through the leaves of a tree.

One of the lion cubs born a couple of years ago and now a young adult.

African Painted Dog.

Huge black bear that is usually sleeping when we go by his exhibit.

Say "cheese", if you please, Mr. Polar Bear.

Handsome hubby
(oh how did that get in there!)  


Sleeping crocodile; or just resting, his eyes are open.

Orange orangutan who doesn't look particularly happy.  Maybe he needs a banana.

The pretty fountain in high gear.

We had a nice time and topped off the day with pizza and chocolate cake with chocolate icing (by request).

Happy Monday!


P.S.  I have some crocheting to share with you soon!

  5. What a fun birthday day out. I love the photo of the Orangutan he looks intelligent, and has a penetrating stare. I wonder what he is thinking!
