My Boy LOVES The Zoo!....ANY Zoo! And, I got TWO awards.....YIPPEEE!

Oh how my little guy LOVES a zoo....He is CRAZY about animals and knows more than Wickipedia....I'm just sure of it! He's been to loads of them....Bless my daughter's heart! The Minnesota Zoo, Point Defiance Zoo, Woodland Park Zoo, San Diego Zoo, Honolulu Zoo......some of them MANY times!....He's actually going to Zoo Camp for two whole weeks this summer, and is THRILLED.

Ahhh.....come on guys, can't we go in yet???

Real? :-) Look at the view from this zoo! Isn't it beautiful?

Oh my gosh........these "little" guys were just beeeeeee-u-ti-ful! I wasn't impressed with their digs, however. A cement cage? No trees?......I felt sorry for them. So many zoos offer natural habitats for their animals....maybe that's in the works for these fellas. I sure hope so.

My beautiful daughter and my little guy........They both had BRIGHT blue eyes until last year. Both of them have green eyes now. I keep wondering how that happened???? Something in the water?

I wish I'd had my better camera with me....I loved this shot...not that I'm a super photographer by any stretch, but I think I'd have gotten a better picture had I had it with me. Darn. Oh how I adore this little guy.


The Premios Darde Award.....which means Top Dart.

The award acknowledges the value that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit culture, ethical, literary and personal values every day.

The Rules:

1. Accept it.

2. Link back to the one who gave it to you.

3. Award it to 15 other people who you think should receive it. Then, let them know.

Thank you sooooo much to Lynn at Lynn's Lovelies and Barbara at The Purple Goat Lady for this wonderful award. I really don't think I do anything to deserve this honor, but I'm so happy you've given it to me!

I never like giving awards to specific girlies.........because I can only award an assigned number. I think you ALLLLLLLL deserve this honor. So, instead of picking a few, I'd like everyone who visits to take this little award right on over to your blog and have it for yourself! You have given me sooooooooooo much by befriending me..........I love you all!

So here it is......copy and paste it to your blog! It's all YOURS!

Oh, for Pete's sake...........I can't get the darn picture to can see it over there on the right........yeah, right there on my sidebar.....snatch it! :-)

I'm wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday.....

I'm cleaning today......well, I'm getting to it.....really I am. Truly. Honestly. Ok....I'm going!

Lovies and Huggies Sweeties!

  4. Spencer,
    Congratulations on the awards. Well deserved!!
    So glad to see that your daughter and your little man are doing so well. They look happy and almost back to themselves. Zoos are fabulous and it's really great that he has such an interest. We have a zoo about 5 minutes from us and we visit it often.
    Enjoy the rest of your day!!

  5. Hey, I'd put that picture of that fine boy in the tree on the wall, enlarged to about 15X25 if I were you!

  6. Sounds like a familiar story....I have a boy just like him!! Has he been to "Wildlife Images" down in Merlin, Oregon yet??? Or "The Raptor Center" in Eugene?? Jesse loved them!
