Day At The Zoo Part One: Outside the Gate

We have not been to the zoo in many years. It was exciting to go and spend an entire day with Emily. We had perfect weather. This is the entrance to the zoo.

The Elephant Statue is very cool. Check out the detail.

Look at the Gold Butterfly closely. It is made of 2 elephants!

There are butterfly habitats throughout the zoo. It is such a pleasure to sit and watch.
Here is an artical about the elephant: http://www.virginiazoo.org/zoo-happenings/publicart_elephant.asp Video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hmxf62Xo-vk

  1. Tina Your Zoo Pictures are so cool! Looks like you had a wonderful day!


  2. More post to follow! I love this sculpture! I have been going to this zoo since my oldest was 18 months ( he is 23 ). We have not visited since 2004. Way too long! But I sure enjoyed the time with my daughter. Many many learning moments and just fun.

  3. Tina,
    I'd love to spend some time at a zoo - it's been so long since I've done that. At course, I'd like a day that's "just right" -not too hot, a little breeze, sunny, etc... :))

    Thank you so much for your help on my pictures!!! You explained it so simply for me, and I was able to do what you said right away. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!
    ((I love pictures)) :)

    That's great how God is providing quality time for you and Emily. Teen daughters can be such a joy!

  4. So glad you were able to post photos!!!
    YES it is awesome to have time with Emily!!! And I love love love this stage with my girls. Its wonderful. So much more of a blessing than ever expected.
