Yesterday we went to the zoo. Not the free, small zoo that we usually go to. We went to the big one. The one that everyone makes such a big deal of. It's supposed to be really great.

Well, it's huge and there's a TON of trees and stuff and lots of space. But there wasn't a ton of animals. I don't know if it's just that there wasn't a lot on display yesterday or if it's the norm. I still had a good time, though. I liked to see what animals I did see, and it's so nice to be out in the sun.

Dash had a great time! He was looking at the animals. I know he's still a little young to really appreciate it, but he knows he is looking at living things. Since we have a dog, I wonder if he makes a connection?

We went with new friends...Very fun day.

The pictures... Well, my camera is not great. I got some good ones, but some of them are a little blurry. So, I just did some editing to enhance the colors and added some effects to some. 

I got some great ones of Dash, though! He's easier to photograph.

This one's not the best, because of the fence. But these things are cool. I forgot what they're called, but they do this weird thing where the sweat glands on their feet leave smelly prints to show they've been there. You'd see their feet go up and down really fast.  















My failed attempt at giving him antlers! 


And... ready to go!

Jun. 2, 2008 at 1:21 PM You did great!!! For someone that just has a poin and shoot..those are great! When will you get your Nikon? You will have to get used to it, but when you get the feel of the new Camera, you will rock the pictures you'll take! You have an eye for you need a Camera were you have more settings that you can play with. Yes that Zoo was weird. So much space, but they don't gave the Animals to small living aria. I thought that was weird.  Someday i want to go to a Safari Zoo. One that more then one Animal lives in one big space. Tim is so cute with Dash! His like holding him and and gives kisses and adores his son sooooooooooooooooo much!
