Weekly Winners - Cincinnati Zoo

November 29 - December 5

Big Christmas Tree

This tree was gigantic and so pretty!

Christmas Reflection



Sweet Face would be his mafia name.

Elephant eating

Oh how darling are the elephants?

Pretty Elephant

Pink polka dotted ear borders are so in this year.

Peacock tail

The peacocks at the zoo are loose, wandering all around the place, eating french fries at the cafe. When Shark Boy realized he could walk right up to them, he wanted to pluck me a pretty feather.


From this guy's tail. I told him I didn't think this bird looked like he had much of a sense of humor. Better not.

Mom and H

I had to include this blurry one (have I mentioned that my camera is killing me) of my mom getting a hug. My boys are so all about their grandfather she says they pass her up like a freight train passing a bum. But Grandma catches up to them. And she's a food source, so the boys are never really that far away.

Have a wonderful week!!

Amazing pictures! Love the red bows on the tree. It looks like such a nice day there, winter showed its ugly face yet? Have a wonderful weekend.

De said...

Looks like Grandma had to steal that hug!

Amy said...

Frau - we were visiting Cincinnati where my parents live, and we had one really nice day that week - perfect for the zoo!

Amy said...

De - We all have to steal hugs from Shark now, but I think him sitting still and letting us steal them means he's "giving us a hug." heh.

Laura said...

I love the first shot of the tree. It's gorgeous!

Leisa Hammett said...

Okay. So the photo, even blurry, of your mom proves you will continue to look good for decades to come. Lucky you. I'm on here trying to find your wardrobe snapshots post to reference.

You shoot digital not dslr, right?

I hope Santa brings you an SLR, if not.

Danifred said...

Those Christmas decorations are remarkably lifelike. The elephant, peacock, monkey - do you have a live monkey in your Christmas tree?

That Elephant needs an haircut.

Cynthia said...

Fun...and it looks so warm there. We are getting buried in snow right now:O

Rima said...

Cool pictures!

I feel for your mom. My kids always want to play with my dad because he goofs off with them and lets them get away with anything. But my mom is a food source, too, and you can't discount the food source :)

OK, now I need to go to the zoo.
