What I did on my summer vacation...

Or to be more accurate, "what I did on my Sunday afternoon..."

Josh's work sponsored a day day at the zoo so we happy campers hiked off to the Louisville Zoo. Our Zoo has grown by leaps and bounds over the last twenty years or so. They've added lots of new exhibits and the trees have grown big enough to provide lots of SHADE!



Mr. Rhino (or Mrs. Rhino. I couldn't tell. Nor did I look.) needs some wrinkle cream.

I love her eyes. They are just gorgeous! (We have a giraffe feeding station at our zoo. It wasn't open while we were there but I think it might be kind of cool to feed a giraffe.)

I think the deer-like animals get overlooked a lot because they aren't as flashy as lions and tigers and bears. So I decided to include a picture of one just for fun. Because I am an equal opportunity photographer.

This is Scotty, our new baby elephant. He is very cute and cuddly and was trying to impress us with his skill at picking up logs. I was impressed. And I wanted to take him home with me. After all, what's one small elephant when you already have 5 dogs, a cat, and various amounts of parrots?

Oh, look, it's nap time for Mr. and Mrs. Lion. They were so cute, sleeping side by side.

I liked this close up shot of her as well, but I didn't realize that she has a bump on her head. Perhaps she should get that looked at.

Zebras speak for themselves.

This poor monkey was all by himself on Monkey Island. I would think Monkey Island would be more fun with more monkeys. But he seemed to be enjoying himself.

It's meerkat manor. Jonathan thinks our Meerkats are lazy because they no longer post guards. He did have some suggestions for shaking them out of their complacency but I doubt that the zoo would approve.

I didn't see any gorillas in the gorilla exhibit so I took pictures of the goofy tourists. (Jessi and Brandon, in case you don't recognize them.)

The tiger was laying right against the glass, belly up, like she wanted a belly rub. Josh wondered how long it would take her to eat my hand if I tried it.

I love penguins! Even if they smell funny.


And we felt like turtles by the time we reached the end of the zoo. Hot, tired, and sleepy. But we had fun. I hope you had a wonderful Sunday as well!

What ever happened to a barrel of monkeys? A lone monkey just doesn't seem right. I love your pictures! It's been ages since I have been to the zoo. Any news yet? Love, A
