The Zoo!

Today, we went to the Popcorn Park Zoo.  This zoo is located approximately 40 minutes from our house if we do not make a wrong turn and circle about 30 miles out of the way and get mixed up in shore traffic on route 9.  But that's another blog post.
PPZ is a tiny little spot in the NJ pinelands, dedicated to helping animals who are hurt or abandoned.  There is a branch of the Humane Society located there, where you can adopt a dog or cat, also.
This little field trip satisfied our last Go-See-It requirement for my Tiger Scouts.  Next week they will all move up into the Wolf den.

                                                               This guy was just chillin'.

                                                                        Da Bears.

                                                         I thought she looked kind of sad.

       I like this picture.  I'm not a great photographer (if you couldn't tell)  and it turned out just like I wanted.

                                              There were all kinds of families at the zoo today!

                                                              Gorgeous colors!

This guy was at the Humane Society.  Apparently he flew away from his owner who had him for 12 years when he was spooked by a loud noise.  

An awesome time was had by all who didn't wear crocs that kept getting full of sand and so they had to sit on their dad's head and were a little hot and whiny, but once again, that's another blog.  It became "all good" once we stopped at Wawa for some cold drinks, and then came home and napped.
A perfect Saturday!
