A day at the Santa Barbara Zoo


             The other day we went on an impromptu trip to the zoo and had a wonderful -
         afternoon. I love the amazement of a child's face as she looks at incredible animals.
                                                 Here are a few pics of our day!


                                                              Colorful and beautiful Parrots.



                                                                     
                                                                         California Trails


                                                                I was loving this little building.


                                                                    my precious little monkey.

                                             Now, I'm off to the movies to go see...We bought a Zoo.
