Makes me think of the Henri Mancini tune from the early 1960's.

I took my niece Allison and her two little ones Aidan and Dylan to the Wild Animal park near San Diego. It was the first time for all three of them. Dylan at 2 months was very good and slept through most of the day, Aidan had the most fun seeing all the wild animals. The highlights of our visit were the Hippo pooping, the grand lion that didn't roar, the giraffe with the long tongue and the gorillas that always give a great show!

I managed some pretty bad sketches except for this one that I rather like.

    Nothing like a good day at the zoo...

    I love that big ol' elephant butt (though it makes me think about what I look like from behind in a certain pair of pants!). It's so much fun hanging out with little ones and getting to again experience the excitement of seeing things like hippos pooping and giraffe tongues.

    A child and a zoo - that's a cocktail of Happiness. I like your elephant sketch too.

  4. Shirley Says:

    Oh, I really like it too! I have wonderful memories from the Wild Animal Park and need to pull out some of those forgotten photos.

    I think it's a wonderful sketch! That's the best looking elephant butt I've seen in a long time!

    I've visited the Wild Animal Park a few times. There is always something fun going on. I like your elephant sketches, and now I have that tune running through my head!!!
