The Zoo--Sunday Snapshot

Friday we went to the zoo with a friend.  It was a little spontaneous for me; she only mentioned the idea Thursday afternoon.  But it is summer and I do love the zoo, especially with our annual pass and my zoom lens (what is the best zoo in Colorado?).  So here is only a portion of the pictures I took.  Thanks, friend, for corralling the kids when I fell behind.  The zoo has some beautiful flowers.
Watching the Sea Otters
AntEater ~ 16 inch long tongue

Huckleberry; we have GOT to go school shopping!
Road Runner?  Maybe...
Sunflower

Arctic Foxes aren't as pretty with their brown summer coats


SnapDragon ~ Running down the hill; almost right into me.
Puffin ~ Not a penguin ~ they don't look that alike to me.
Ready to Go Home

Oh my goodness...I LOVE these pictures. And I love the zoo. The Denver Zoo is pretty great...and we try to go at least once a year. (They have a few free days a year) But the one in Colorado Springs is so neat, because you can feed the giraffes.

Mike and I's first date ever, was the San Diego Zoo. :)

P.S. Triscuits are my favorite crackers EVER.
