Picture time!

I went on so many trips this summer that I think it's time to rehash.

We'll start with the zoo. :)
Here's me and sister ready to get the show on the road:

This next picture doesn't even need an introduction, seperated at birth:

If you'll notice in the above picture, it's hard to avoid capturing the glare off the windows. Maybe it was luck (I would consider it skill...) but this next picture came out perfect. Untouched.

TOO hysterical!! This is what i call a true friend:


Ok, Is he not just the cutest thing you've ever seen!!? What the heck!? SO CUTE!

Now, take a gander at these wild animals! Rowr!:


I'd never seen a peacock until that day...and he was SHOWING OFF! He turned in circles for everyone:

Ok, can you see the snake?? I couldn't! It was like one of those three-d paintings that you have to stare at until it pops out! Just when I thought I saw him....I was looking at him the wrong way (it was a lot harder to see in person)

THis next picture was taken right before my parents got off the gondola. We were laughing so hard at how much it was tilting (if it wasn't so late right now, i'd have cropped my brothers ear out...):


Geoffry (umm, what would you call him?) posed for a long time...and gave sweet looks like this one! :)

Then he got really annoyed. I would even be willing to bet that he would avoid me on my next visit.

These guys were pretty funny, too. lol THey stood really still when we first walked up.....


THen, as if they signaled to each other, they both turned slowly at the exact same time and stood still again:

Now...for those of you that have kiddies..cover there eyes. Just couldn't resist this next pic...lol

I spy, with my little eye. A third leg??

I've been meaning to take the peanut to the zoo, but haven't done it yet. Looks like it was a beautiful day to go!!!

Those pics were fantastic! Don't you just love the zoo? My favorite animals from my last trip were the flamingo's. I'm sure that has nothing to do with the fact that I love pink though!

Those Zebras are some clever dudes!

Just this morning I joined my friend and her son at a farm and got to meet some big smelly pigs. :)

Great photos! When we took our son to the SD Zoo, he ran up to the Giraffes and said, "Hi Giraffe, what's up?" - everyone was laughing.
