Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

Today we went on a short road trip up to Columbia to visit the zoo. Neither hubby nor I could even remember the last time we had been to a zoo! We all had a great time checking out the animals and the huge garden that they have there. It is nice now that the little one has gotten a little older that we can take her to do fun stuff and she actually enjoys it.
Feeding the Giraffe was so cool! Everyone enjoyed that!

If only they looked this pretty on people's front lawns!

The little one checking out the Zebra.

This guy's giving me the stink eye because I laughed at him for having part of his breakfast on his chin!

She enjoyed giving out hugs to ALL of the animal sculptures!

Going in for another hug!

Her first Merry-go-Round ride!

Most of the animals had buddies to play with this one preferred to play by himself!

A last ditch effort...

Yesterday I decide to make one last attempt to grow something in the garden. I have had little to no success all summer but I again have hopes! Maybe fall is the way to go since there are less insects and less heat.

I also planted cucumbers and one more tomato plant (not pictured). I was unsure about the zucchini but I was advised at the nursery that it is a 50 day plant and this one already has buds so it should fruit before we get cold, since it isn't really cold here until November. And who can go wrong with plant advice that comes from a nursery that also has the greatest collection of Holly Hobby plates from the 1970's for sale!

If only they hadn't already sold their the metal Holly Hobby lunchbox collection off! Because of course I asked after seeing the plates! I had one when when I was a kid! It was the best!

I totally would have bought it for the little one to carry her snacks around in! Anyway, that's all for now keep your fingers crossed that I can at least manage to grow enough lettuce for a single salad because that will make the effort all worth it! :)
