Tough Week

Sorry no posts for a while. This week has been wild. Work has taken it’s toll on me. I plan on getting things back on track this weekend. Thank you for your patience.


First trip to the zoo this summer

Sunday we took our first trip to the zoo this summer. It was a great trip because all six of us were able to go. Here are a few of my photos from the trip. I’ll show you some of the animals. I think I took more of flowers though.

The orangutan had a baby which you can see hanging on for the ride.


Now here at the some of the birds.

I love the pelican looking at me. He reminds me of pelican from the movie Racing Stripes (a good kid’s movie).  He went right up to the fence and was peaking through it. Once I knelt down to take the picture he wouldn’t stop moving.

I almost missed this peacock looking around from up on this tree branch.


It was feeding time for this bird. It wouldn’t look up for a picture.


I just love the colors in this little fellow. I think the black framing him looks good.

The next three are of one of a couple white peacocks our zoo has.

I like this bird also.


This frog was fun to watch. Our two youngest always look for the frogs anywhere there is water. Every time it crocked his throat would get big.

Here are some of the plant and water photos I took.


My wife and I thought this was a pretty plant. The yellow and purplish colors was neat.

Because this was one of the few times all of us were together we had our picture taken. I asked someone to take our picture in return I would take theirs.


Here we are all together. Our oldest son is in the back and the two youngest is in the front. My wife is behind our daughter who is graduating this year.
