Z is for Zoo~ #atozchallenge #MFRWAuthor #zoo
Zoo. Tuesday was Andee’s end of the year field trip for her fourth grade class for which I was a chaperone. She was thrilled that her mom and little sister were able to join us for a day of fun even though it was raining most of the morning. That didn’t hinder the animals or us! I hope you enjoy this peek into our day.
Peacocks were out in force among the crowds, proudly strutting their stunning beauty. One let Andee get almost close enough to pet.
The kids wanted a fun picture, then a nice lady offered to take a photo of my little group in the pachyderm house. Baby Mackenzie had fun at the elephants.
It was an awesome experience to pet the stingrays! They feel like catfish to me; soft and velvety. It’s interesting that you simply put your hand into the water and they come to you and brush against your hand for a pet.
Obviously, I can’t post all the pictures taken, but here are a few I like. Those catfish in the picture right above with the geese were crazy! We fed the geese and those things made the water boil with their feeding frenzy. The baby elephant was born in December, and the animal in the next picture is a bat-eared fox. The pink flamingos were spectacular, but the red and green macaw didn’t have a spot of red on it, that I could see. 🙂

Looks like you had great fun at the zoo there! At our local city zoo, I have 23 poems up on the animal closures – I haven’t seen the latest though as I can’t go in because I have an assistance dog! ~Liz Congrats on getting to the end! http://www.lizbrownleepoet.com (don’t use Twitter of Blogger links, they don’t work!)
How cool you have your writing in the zoo for everyone to see, Liz! I’m sorry you can’t get in to see them. Thanks for stopping in.
What a great day for the outing to the Zoo with the kids! The pictures turned out great, too! I’ve really enjoyed reading your A2Z posts! It is quite the accomplishment to get through all month and all the letters. Wishing you all the best, in all you do, and much blogging fun! 🙂
It was great fun. 🙂 Thank you for following along! Congrats to you for completing the challenge too. 🙂
