A Trip to the Arizona Zoo/ Outdoor Wednesday!

I'm still unpacking my clothes from our Arizona trip but just wanted to share some fun pics! Last Thursday, my hubby Dan and I, along with my son Joshua headed to the Phoenix Zoo. It was a gorgeous day with a high of about 65 which is actually quite cool for Phoenix this time of year.  Josh has loved zoos since he was a little boy and Dan and I enjoy them as well.  Well this zoo is just wonderful ! We especially enjoyed viewing  the spider monkeys!  Now doesn't  it   look like this guy is contemplating his future.

My favorite, the spider monkey's!  Don't they have just the cutest faces?

The Sentries are standing guard!

The most glorious shades of pink!!

King of the Jungle or just a big Pussycat?

Is he watching us or are we watching him??

I think I could take him home with me!    Please join Susan and some other great bloggers for an Outdoor Wednesday.   Cindy


  1. HI!!!
    I love our ZOO!!!!
    We go at least 1 or 2 times per year!!!!!! I think it is so fun to go stare at the animals!!!! I also say they think we are crazy for staring at them!!!!!

  2. Hi Cindy! You got some great shots at the zoo! Love those sentries...

  3. Cindy, you always, ALWAYS take the absolute best pics of animals, and this is no exception. Just phenomenal! I loved seeing them ALL.

    BTW, I did write promo lit. I left a message in your previous post. Thanks for the compliment! :-)

    Glad you had so much fun on your trip! Come to St. Augustine, and I will take you to the oldest alligator farm in the US! And it has endangered species of birds and other neat animals there, too. They're waiting for you to photograph them! ;-)

Hehe! You know...they are my favorite too!!! I would love to have one...they are just so darn cute! I see an excerpt on TV for a show...anyway, they had these baby monkeys playing with 2 white tiger cubs...it was just the cutest thing you've ever seen!!! Girl, it's been ages since I've been to a zoo...I'm glad that you shared your trip with us! Great photos!!!

    Well...I'm paying the price for working on my fireplace yesterday...my old bones are really hurting me today! I suspect I won't get much done! I'm really excited though...going to get to meet Sally from Salmagundi blog tomorrow for lunch! She's such a sweet lady...I'm really looking forward to our lunch date! Hehe...you know...I agree! I think you and Dan need to plan a trip to Colorado!!! I would love geting to meet you and spend some time visiting with you, my friend! Russell and I are planning a trip to Vegas in April. They have a Rockabilly car show going on! Gloria and her husband Len are planning on meeting us there! I'm soooo excited about getting to meet up with Gloria! Maybe you and Dan should plan a trip to Vegas? Hehe! We could just make it a "threesome"!!!
