All About Animals

If you're having a bad day or just need a little pick-me-up, hopefully this post will do the trick.

The other day, while Emily was out of town, I went with the boys to the Phoenix zoo... I felt highly outnumbered. I'm so glad she's back... Only I'm about to leave her tomorrow headed on a very fun long weekend trip to San Diego to see my long lost friend Jane Gray!! I'm ecstatic! Emily's not- and I don't blame her. This is what she will be surrounded by while I'm gone...

{We talk big, but they really are fun!}

In the picture above, Aaron and another {southern} guy are calling up turkeys and making them gobble back. All it made me think was, "You might be a redneck if... you call up gobblers at the zoo {a really nice southwestern zoo- not deep south zoo}.

Photobucket

The zoo animals were fun, but so were the little scavengers roaming the park!

Photobucket

I didn't take anymore pictures at the zoo... It was entirely too hot {98 degrees} but I did photograph our evening at the dog park the other night. Go visit one if you need/want a combination of animal therapy and free entertainment.

Photobucket

There are dogs of all shapes and sizes.

But there are two different parks since all dogs are not alike... There is the "Active" dog park...

Photobucket

... and the "Passive" dog park... {I love how two dudes are walking Belle {and her hot pink leash} into the passive park- it cracks me up!}

Photobucket

So does this picture...

Photobucket

She gets reeeeeeeeally excited when she first arrives.

Photobucket

and she's "cool" and cute so she gets along great with all the other dogs.

Photobucket

... and sometimes she's so cute that she gets terrorized by the boys and looks to us for immediate help!

Photobucket

... but you catch her sneaking away behind the garbage cans {with boy dogs} and it makes you wonder...

Photobucket

Regardless, she's very popular.

Photobucket

... and definitely a flirt!

Photobucket

We're pretty popular with the dogs too and we don't even bring treats!

There's pretty girls...

Photobucket

... and faces only a mother could love.

Photobucket

It's WWF smack-down one minute...

Photobucket

Photobucket

... 100 meter dash another minute...

Photobucket

... and taking a breather the next.

Photobucket

Belle isn't intimidated by much... even with her small size.

Photobucket

... and she's become quite the social butterfly thanks to all of her dog park outings.

Photobucket

She plays so hard and by the time the evening comes to a close she winds up by our feet.

Photobucket

Well, I hope you enjoyed viewing this wide array of animals and I hope it brightened your day... It sure brightened mine writing it! Speaking of brightening my day... I have to brag on Aaron and Brad for a minute...

Photobucket

They came home from the field yesterday and surprised us with these sweet treats!

Photobucket

Sprinkles cupcakes are supposedly the best cupcakes made and the "pioneers" of the booming cupcake industry and with one bite I quickly learned why!

Photobucket

That's all for today folks!!
