Whew! You are braver than me heading out to the zoo in the dead heat of summer. The fam looks like they had a good time in spite of it... and I love the animal photos.

I love your zoo pics, especially that elephant one-I love it and I have to say I have a special love for the african elephant b/c I saw it in real habitat (in Zimbabwe). I also love your hibiscus pics-it reminds me of Georgio O'Keefe, who I really love (you know). I love seeing pics of everyone but it just makes me more sad that I am not there with everyone! I love you all!

MOM, You promptly posted those pics after our parade at the zoo. The zoo was fun. It was great to get really hot especially after being indoors all week. I enjoyed being outside with nature. Later that night the girls and I drew our own version of a zoo on the sidewalk with chalk. It was abstract but isn't that the best art...haha. I loved the bird pictures you took. I really enjoyed looking at the elephants and giraffes.

hey rach, it was fun and that sounds so creative making art on the sidewalks. let's go again once it cools down.
