I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Pink Saturday From The Zoo

O.k, I know there is no pink here, but please bare with me. I wasn't very motivated this week in my studio, so there is nothing to show you from there. I know, I know, you are probably clapping your hands and yelling yippee......something different is coming our way. You are right, I was babysitting today, actually we had a sleepover last night with our two year old grand daughter and today I took her and also my mom, daughter and twin grandsons to the zoo.
It was a gorgeous day, sunny and warm, perfect for an outing. That is what I am sharing with you this weekend.

A goofy face, but dressed in pink, yes siree. Happy to be driving a tracktor that is waaaay too big for her!!HA

I don't think the boys could possibly understand why they were not moving. Too funny, but lots and lots of fun.

Jenna and Aunt Kirstin on a camel......doesn't everyone ride a camel?

Short sleeves, like I said, it's nice out today. Not shoveling snow here.

At lunch with the ducks and geese.....what a sweetie pie!!!

We also have peacocks, but they must be molting because they have no tail feathers. Pretty anyway.

This guy is trying to make a mad dash for it.....keep dreaming fellow.
Happy Pink Saturday to all my pinkie friends. I look forward to seeing what you have been up too. Thank You Ms. Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for making this possible for so many of us. We love you!! You can find the links and the participants to this weeks fun by visiting Beverly's blog.

That sounds like fun. I wish we lived closer to our great granddaughter so we could take her out more. Oooh, sugar, only less than 3 weeks till we drive over to see her again. I can't wait!!!!

Tammy@beatrice banks said...

Oh my what a beautiful day, and those grand children, beautiful, too.
We made it to 50 today, after weeks of under 20, it was really nice, and I was outside in the snow in short sleeves. Nice.
Happy PS

Holly said...

Zoos are so much fun! Thanks for sharing the pictures with us. It would be hard to know who had a better time - you or your grandchildren.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Simply Debbie said...

Deepest sympathies for the families in Tucson. How far about are you from them
Your little granddaughter reminds me of Amy...she wore her hair that way and was about that size...they just grow up so very quick
I think if I raced that turtle I might just about beat him...it would be close...wink...wink...
It helped me to take a bloggy break.
Have A Sugar Sweet Day

I'm jealous. We have snow, more snow, and even more snow. I think it is great to show your grand-daughter pretty in pink. We all need something cute to bring a smile. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Char! So nice to have you visit me! I have entered you in the surprise giveaway!

Love the zoo pictures, we ride camels here at the Date Festival in February, so not a shock to me!
What beautiful children!

Have a great week,
