Ted and I got up early, got some things done and went to Karen and Jeff's for a fun day at the zoo.
This is Savannah and I on the little train that runs around part of the zoo/park.
Jeff and Karen, they had their anniversary on Saturday.
Papaw Teddy Bear came along also. The train ride is fun.
Here's the train pulling into the depot right before we boarded.
A young girl is the engineer.
We rode past the swimming pool, that was over flowing with families. It was a warm and pretty day.
We rode past the huge pond and this was the coolest area of the whole park to me.
Green giraffe. the statue animals are in crazy colors.
Purple and gray tiger.
We went to the Snakes Alive show. This is a rat snake if you wanted to touch it, no where near it's face...they gave you sanitizers to wash your hands.
The girl in purple , Michelle, is holding a five foot boa named Oz. When the show was over she allowed us to touch it. , not near it's face. Then you had to sanitize again. I asked where is Julius Squeezer the boa constrictor. ...the young lady said Julius had passed away unexpectedly. That was sad.
We went thru the butterfly exhibit.
I do not know all the names so I will just show them.
They are so pretty, especially if they land on some pretty flowers.
There was also little dishes of fruit for the butterflies, through out the tent. It was a great day at the zoo. Then we went to lunch at O' Charley's. Ate way too much. It was delicious food. I really loved my time with the kids and our lunch. Came home totally wore out. LOL.
Hope all of you had a sweet day. The weather was perfect here . Enjoy the rest of the holiday. XO
