And then we went to the zoo.

I was on vacation last week, and I'm having a hard time shifting out of relax-and-don't-do-much-of-anything mode.  Though coming home to a bushel of beans to put in the freezer gave me a big bump in the direction of reality...
My vacation was lovely.  My youngest daughter and I went to my Dad's house, where my oldest daughter already was, with her husband and kids in tow.  (Yay!  Seeing the grandkids!!)  I spent most of my time sitting and relaxing and talking with anyone who'd sit and relax and talk with me.
Though they did finally manage to drag me out of my chair and off to the zoo, where we saw all manner of fabulous critters.

Now, I love monkeys as much as anyone, but my favorites are these:


The little hand in the lower left corner is my grandson's, pointing at a penguin that I wasn't looking at.  I adjusted my camera angle.




The look that young penguin is giving that finger is probably the reason that they posted this sign:





There were a whole bunch of these beauties.  Also finger gobblers, unless I miss my guess.


And just because I'm a sucker for chickens, here's a shot I caught in the Ordinary Critters on the Farm barn.


Okay, say it with me, now.
Awwww....

I haven't been to a zoo in ages. Love the penguins ("ing-wings" at our house, that's what Elder Son called them) and the tigers and the Ordinary Animals.

Monkeys don't really do it for me either - the penguins are cool - but I love the polar bears!
And those chickens are pretty awesome too!

Hmm, haven't been to the zoo in years. The big cats are always my favorites. Glad you had a good vacation.

Penguins will always be penguinos (after learning the word in Spanish.) I love watching them :) I love watching most animals.

Except when they are chewing my (new) underwear. /gotta go
