Wild Animals?


I had forgotten how much fun it can be to go to the zoo!  We had perfect weather in Salt Lake last week as we headed off to see the animals.


The little ones started the day in the stroller, but with excitement all around, that didn't last long.


This photo almost ended up as my entry for last week's Sunday Creative Challenge - raw.  We had BBQ Turkey last weekend and I couldn't help but think that this was the true definition of raw, but it felt a bit morbid and I missed the deadline.


I love peacocks - the gorgeous colors.  I secretly want to decorate a room on a peacock theme.


Our favorite stop was the elephants - because of the newest arrival.  Isn't she cute?



A good time was had by all.

I've been loving this song, "Animal" from Utah band - Neon Trees.  Isn't it nice that Utah music is starting to mean more than the Osmonds?

Like Nicole, I have been enjoying this song and had no idea this pound was from Utah. Thanks for the knowledge.
