Our Visit To The Zoo

This trip to the NC Zoo in Asheboro was a couple of weeks ago (7/25/09). We went with Scott’s cousin Phillip and his family.  Of course, I took LOTS of photos, but I’ll just share a few here:

This lion sure is enjoying “something.” (Glad that something wasn’t my leg!) =-)

I love this shot of the bear. It was an extremely hot day…I love the way he’s just hangin’ round in the water.

Love this shot of the polar bear too and the very blue water.

Otter taking a rest from swimming. See how sleek he looks.

Daddy holding Kerry up for a better look. 🙂

There was a statue of an elephant that the kids wanted to get up on for photos. Here’s Kerry, Sarah, Rebecca, and Christopher. (Rebecca and Christopher are Phillip and Gloria’s kids…Phillip is Scott’s cousin from the beach.) The kids had such a great time getting together!

(These last shots were taken w/ Sarah’s little digital camera…we took turns.)
Rebecca…ain’t she cute?! 🙂

Here, the kids were starting to look rather tired.
____________________________________________________
Here’s a tip…take pics of people at the VERY beginning. Ya know…BEFORE they’ve walked around all day in a 100 degree weather!! =-)

Scott just thinks he’s SOOOO funny!

“The Inside Track”

Doggie On Duty

This time, I’m sharing a snap-shot of our own “Gracie Girl,” and I’ve added a special caption. I’ve been trying to get this shot for at least months now! Every time I would approach Gracie with the camera, she would get up (first, out of curiosity about the “mysterious black box,” and then, she was just seeking some petting and scratching!) Anyway, this time, she didn’t seem to care at all. Hope you enjoy!

“I’m a VICIOUS PREDATOR…FEAR ME!!”

_____________________________________________________________________________

“O.K., you’re in trouble now…I’ve got my eye on you!”

_____________________________________________________________________

**Note: Just so you don’t get the wrong idea, Gracie really is a great guard dog! She’s gentle, sweet, friendly, and easy-going with us and our family, friends, acquaintances, etc. However, about the only time she barks is when she senses any potential danger {which is so wonderful to me…it’s so annoying and non-beneficial when a dog just barks all the time! Then, you won’t know when there really is anything to be concerned about! } She goes on “high alert” with snakes and strangers (in our yard, uninvited, suspicious, etc.). Gracie is very intelligent, and if I am “on guard” at all, she knows it…Therefore, she’s on alert too!

Anyway…hope you enjoyed seeing Gracie the way I do! -)

Silly “Hoomans”

This post is for all the pets out there who love their “hoomans” and tolerate their silly, strange behavior. -)

Crazy Animal Humor (On Wordless Wednesday)

I’ve recently read a couple of different blog posts reminding us all to laugh. I wholeheartedly agree that “laughter is the best medicine.” Once we start to look for it, we may discover that humor can be found in various places all around us. As I stated in a couple of comments (on these different posts), I think that sometimes I begin to take life too seriously, and I forget to laugh!

So, anyway, today for Wordless Wednesday, I want to share some animal pictures with you that I think are funny and cute. I found these several months ago and saved them as a draft. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Delightful Doggies

O.k., I’ll admit, I don’t think I’ll ever lose my love for these cute, fuzzy, and furry friends! It might seem silly and trivial to some, but I know you other canine lovers out there understand! So, anyway, on with the photo fun! Here’s my picks of the “pics” for today:
