Zoo Day

march 24 026

“Hear my prayer, O Lord,
and give ear to my cry;
hold not your peace at my tears!
For I am a sojourner with you,
a guest, like all my fathers."
-Psalm 39:12

Spring is the best time to go to the zoo. The weather was mild; breezy and sunny. The crowds were small and every one was relaxed. We had a great time. My favorite way to take the zoo is with just one child. Punkin was a delight; bopping around in wide-eyed wonder.

The zebras and giraffes were posing for the camera.

These elephants will be moving to another zoo soon because there is not enough room for them here. This might be the last time we see them. More photos at Flickr.

What wonderful photos, especially the flower and bee. Sad the elephants are moving away. I hope they don't forget to pack their trunks (well, if I didn't say, someone else would!)
