am trying to catch up with pics.. (see my daughters bday pics in the post below)..and just now got around to getting the Zoo pics together in an album.
Hubby had to work while we were in Phoenix..so he dropped me off at 10 am one day to enjoy the Zoo at my leisure!! How Exciting :)
I got to snap as many pictures as I wanted..and lollygagged around the zoo at my own pace..and sat and giggled at their funny faces :) It was so fun :)
LOTS of Kids at the zoo.. I think the Phoenix Zoo was voted one of the nation's best Zoo's for kids...so Lots of Moms, babies, kids, toddlers, strollers, and commotion! Ahhhh..brought back lots of memories!
On our drive out there..along Rte. 10.. we had the pleasure of driving thru a Dust/Sand/Dirt Storm!!!! WAY COOL!!! It's almost like being in a blizzard..only its BROWN... (ewww..sounds nasty).. But i was very excited! I love braving the 'elements' :)
It's a wonder we have paint left on the car! I did have a fleeting thought of sitting on the roof and experiencing some microdermabrasion..for FREE.. hehehehe
The temps were perfect while we were there..in the mid 80's during the day..and very tolerable!! We lucked out!
We managed to make it into town and enjoyed Dinner at "My Big Fat Greek Restaurant". Voted Best Greek Restaurant for the past 4 yrs! It was SOOOO GOOD! Oh my word! We shared a plate of Stuffed peppers, pizza sticks..and salad..and it was allll just sooo good! If you go..you must treat yourself to the Pomogranite Mojito... YUMMM!!!
The rest of the time was spent schmoozing with salespeople that Tim works with.. a great bunch of guys...funny..warm, welcoming.. we immediately hit it off!
I hope to hit the shops the next time I go.. and would love to visit the Ghost town in Apache Junction the next time too. So if anyone can recommend places to go/see ..I'd love to hear them!
