A summer day

AT THE ZOO!!!
(isn't that what summer is about?)

This zoo was BIG, yet a perfect "family" zoo.

Reptiles...

Barnyard pet-ables...

LOTS and LOTS of CATS!!!



Maybe THIS is what summer is all about :)

 Baby animals for petting




A chimp who knew nothing beats a quilt!

Look like other animals were taking their afternoon snooze...



 And then there's Wallace...

We all were able to feed him...




and then we fed ourselves.


and finished the day off with some ice cream.

And those ribs from last night.... despite going a little bit overboard on the chili powder and forgetting the sugar until the final dipping sauce (YIKES!!!!!!), they still ended up getting gobbled up.
 

Psht!  Grandpa using a knife and fork... I guess you gotta do what you gotta do to enjoy ribs.

And now, I'm pooped!  A simple meal on the menu tonight;  tacos!  
The evening is open; I might get some sewing in after dinner...
...and tomorrow, we hit the road for home.

What a pity you have to make the long drive home so soon. You seem to have had a wonderful time with your sister - and I'm green with envy about the weather you've had. We're getting paler and paler here in the UK with the lack of sunshine and will probably develop webbed feet quite soon.
