We spent the next morning swapping IT tips with Shelby. I even learned some shortcuts that I didn't know before! We got Chick-fil-A biscuits for brunch :) Then my parents and I went to Elmwood Zoo - just a hop and a skip away...
Woken up from his nap *yawn*
Look at that fuzzy fur ^_^
Elk (he's licking his chops after eating lunch)
Cougar (wow, those wild cats look powerful...)
Wendy the Bison
nom nom, thanks for the treat! Dad and I had the opportunity to feed the bisons. It was such a neat experience! They are huge animals, but they were very quiet and calm.
yummy, it's a lettuce snack
Friendly Neighborhood Prairie Dog
My home :)
The one critter I regret not taking a photo of was the Barred Owl. When Dad walked by, he started "ho-ho-hooo-ing" loudy. He seemed intrigued by Dad's hat :) It was kind of dark in that spot, so while I don't have a photo, I'll post a link to Elmwood's page about the Barred Owl. He sure was perky for the middle of the day ^_^
Dad and Mom and I celebrated our adventure by getting dinner at Outback. A delicious way to end a wonderful weekend <3 I'm thanking the Lord for this blessed time and all its joys!
