It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Saturday Snapshot & Quote

Saturday Snapshot
hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme, post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.


The family went to the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park this week. You may remember it as the Wild Animal Park. We took a truck tour (extra) and were able to feed a giraffe and a couple of Rhinos. Then stopped in the Lorikeet exhibit and got one picture before the camera battery died. For just a little bit, I had four birds on me!

That looks like a great place for animals (and people) to roam :)

Ah, I love zoos! And the San Diego one is fabulous, although I haven't been there in many years.

Looks like you had a nice day!

I'm sure the animals were as charmed by you as you must have been by them. I met a giraffe once and he seemed to have a sense of humor. Did you get that impression from your friend?

Alyce said...

Those are fabulous photos! Giraffes are so much fun to watch. I bet it was great fun to be able to feed one!

Faith said...

We went to the zoo a couple of months ago. Looks like you had a blast!

I got to feed a giraffe at our local zoo once, their tongues are SO long and purple. Touching a rhino is pretty awesome!

Simcha said...

We (my kids and I) love zoos and this looks like a great one. I'd love to be able to pet a giraffe!

Marie said...
