A perfect day

The weather was just perfect, not a cloud in the sky....finally after 4 years we went to the Zoo. I was saving this excursion for when we had company but something else always came up, you know how that is. Nashville has an amazing zoo, so well layed out, a great selection of animals and so very clean! It did feel a bit odd not to have a child in tow..I tried to get our 19 year old son to join us, but he had other plans. I guess I need to accept that he has grown up, ugh...that is a hard one.

My favorites are always the cats, no matter what species. I suppose it may have something to do with being a Leo.

The new Flamingo exhibit....such amazing creatures!  

 very curious giraffes...

I hope you all are enjoying a wonderful weekend as well. 


  1. Beautiful pictures...aren't the white tigers just amazingly beautiful.

  2. Sounds like you had a great time. Love the Big Cats too!

  3. Looks like it was a great trip. I am always drawn to the cats myself - although not a Leo.

  4. Hey Judy!
    I'm so glad to see the kid in you decided on a day at the zoo!! :-) I have that excuse to go as I chaperoned for the last 2 years with the school.
    Those big cats...they are amazing, but still a bit scary...just knowing how fast they can run!
    We've had a great weekend too..will post pics soon.

  5. I never get tired of the zoo, it is always fascinating! Looks like you had a great day!~

  6. Oh, how I love the zoo. And this one really does look nice and clean. It does look like the perfect day in zoo paradise.

  7. Just love the zoo. It's been years since we've been. Fall weather is ideal for getting out and doing something fun like this.

  8. I think that's great that you took the initiative to go to the zoo just because-I think people should do that more often!

    It looks like you had such a wonderful time on a beautiful Fall day :)
