~Pink Saturday~~And~~Missed Opportunities~

Can you guess by this picture, where we are?

How about this one? Are you getting closer?
Beautiful pink flamingos, there's even one showing his lovely wings and feathers to us.

I know this will give it away! Three lovely and precious grand babies on a camel ride. Sorry camel, I cut your nose off!!

If you guessed the zoo, you are spot on. But wait, snow in the middle of July!? AND in Phoenix? Surely you must be kidding.
The mere cat in the above picture is loving it. He's happy, cool and calm.

And how about this furry little, I  mean big guy? He has a cool treat and looks happy to me.

I wonder if he has any idea how gorgeous he is?

It was a snow celebration at the zoo Sat. July 16th and tons of snow were brought in for the children to enjoy and all the animals too. There was snow to play in, snow to eat and frozen treats for all.

There was four huge piles of snow at the entrance to the zoo so the children could throw snow balls and games were played.
This was from 7 a.m until 11 a.m. As you can imagine with temperatures in the 100's, the snow would not last long, but it was long enough to have some fun with.

Icy treats for all, would you like yours with fresh carrots?

If there is no snow, how about some sprinklers for some wet fun?

This African black bear had a large ice block with yum.......frozen salmon inside!! Now, that's what I call a treat!!!

Some of us prefer our own treats, like popcorn, soda, juice etc. That is how Jack is keeping cool, or maybe you would prefer this next way to keep the sun off.....
That might work Jack, but I think I would prefer this system more,

The good ole misting system......Yippee!!
We had a wonderful time at the zoo and had a sleep over the night before. It was FUN.
Now, if you are wondering about the missed opportunity, it was being about to meet one of our blogging sisters, Marydon of Blushing Rose.
Marydon was in AZ to surprise Sherry of Country Wings In Phoenix. Everyone was meeting for lunch, but sadly I was unable to attend. My heart was in two places at once, but believe me when I say, I will be there for the next good time!! Sorry Sherry and sorry Marydon. I know you had a perfect time together.
Now, if I didn't show you enough pink from the above pictures, here is a little of what I have been working on this past week.

These are just a few that have been added to my website or my etsy shop. Pink, just like I promised.
Thank you so much Ms. Beverly for all you do for us each week. You can find all of this weeks participants on Beverly's blog, how sweet the sound. Have a wonderful and safe weekend everyone.

How lovely your goodies are! I wonder who had more fun at the zoo - you or your grandchildren? =0) Good for you! Ohhh, I'm sorry you missed lunch with Sherry and Marydon. I bet that would've been a great time!

Hi and Happy Pink Saturday, Char,
What a "cool" idea to bring in the snow for the children to enjoy for a short while. I know they must have thought it great fun and the animals enjoyed the refreshing cold, too.
Your little Jack is so cute. Did you know that I have a little Jack, too? He is older at 7. Little boys are such a hoot, aren't they?

Your stockings are just beautiful....works of art! You better be making more as those will not last long.
Keep cool!

Hi Char,

I can see everyone had a great time. I'm telling this heat wave we are having everyone needs their own misting system and big block of ice. :0) Your stockings are lovely!

Pink Sparkles for your week,
Stephanie Suzanne ♥

Char, I love it! Snow in Phoenix in July. The kids are precious. So happy you had that opportunity.

Daniella said...

Oh what fun you all had!! That was worth missing lunch with blogging friends. Like you said, how many opportunities do the children get to see snow in Arizona?????
Those stockings are gorgeous!! I do a "pink Christmas" at my house. They would look wonderful!!!

Happy Pink Saturday
The stockings are so gorgeous.
A cactus farm, now that is such a cool idea. We have no such thing where I live, then again I do live in Scotland.
