Fun With Animals

We visited my mom and her hubby this weekend. As if there aren't enough animals on mom's property (horses, goats, sheep, and a recently rescued labrador), we decided to take the kids on a field trip to the local zoo. The kids had a blast!

Anyway, I got a little camera crazy at the park, so let's get on with the photos, shall we?

Watch as Zoe gets into a staring contest with an ostrich with an attitude:


The bunnies were oh so friendly! Also, it helped that my kids were feeding them banana chips:


This toucan was sooo ready for his closeup! After I took this shot, he proceeded to get in the way of the other toucan in the cage, to the point that I never got a clear shot of his roommate. Talk about a camera hog:



Never in my life have a seen an iguana as big as this. He also decided to ham it up for the camera. I wonder if the William Morris Agency is representing these guys:

I kept waiting for the iguana to bust out a bottle of Lubriderm lotion, but it never happened. Maybe next time.
P.S.--do any of you internets know why my text is looking all smooshed together? I can't figure it out. I know, that's not surprising given my lack of techie skills. I've given up trying to fix it today, so please forgive me if the text looks a bit wonky.

Fabulous pics!

When my text gets squooshed together, I have to go into the html edit section and get rid of a bunch of extra code that gets put in there after adding a lot of pictures.

Look between the paragraphs, and you'll see a bunch of code phrases repeated. Just delete them. It takes awhile to figure it out, but by trial and error, you can do it!

Thanks Attila! I'll give it a try. First attempt didn't quite go as planned, but I'm no good until I have at least a cup or two of coffee. Once I'm thoroughly caffeinated I'll take another crack at it.
