Zoo fun

If you want to see the imaginative and humorous side of our creator, just spend the day at a zoo.  Hundreds of mothers, fathers, grandmas, grandpas, and animals--some in cages, some in strollers and some just running lose and wild.

We visited the Omaha zoo before we left Nebraska. It is Omaha's main attraction. We were hot and tired and wanted beat rush hour traffic, so we didn't see everything there was to see, but we saw most of it. I decided that zoos are more fun when you have little children to take along with you. Hearing the constant chatter of "Mama, mama, hey mama, look!" and the ooohhs and aahhhs and "Daddy, pick me up!"... sure made me miss the days when my girls were little. And I wished for my granddaughters in the worst way.

Hubby and I still enjoyed the day together and took only a few pictures. There is something about animal pictures that make my mind run wild with captions. I added a couple and I want to know how you would caption my photos too.  Please leave your comments.

Honey, use your napkin. You have a little pollen right there...






A penny for your thoughts.






Now we are home again, visiting family and tending to little things that need tended. Touching base so to speak, until the next time the phone rings.

Ha! You got me with that first paragraph!

The pictures are fantastic...especially the close-ups...

I'll leave the clever captions to minds funnier that mine....

I think that you are right. God certainly has a sense of humor. But if you think about it He had to do something different with some of those critters or else there might be some that looked alike. I think that at least one of those pictures someone was having a bad hair day and one might need to be shaved, LOL. I am glad to hear that you are at home for a little while. Enjoy your time there.

I always wonder what I'm supposed to do with all those animal pics I take at the zoo. Now I know - I so have to do this. I got some great ones in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago.

Hey Karen, can't wait to see your pictures.
Sistergirl, I don't remember what those critters are, but they are endangered. That's all I remember. lol
Thanks for stopping by!

The butterfly pics are beautiful, but my favorite is the one of lots of birds.

Thanks Deanna,
The coolest thing about the zoo in Omaha is that (for the most part)you can go right in the animals' areas and mingle with them. In here you had to look out for bird doopie falling from above.
I don't think I've ever seen so many budgies in one place before.
