Am posting a slide show of some of the pictures—I took a zillion. Well, maybe I am exaggerating a bit but I did take a lot!!! Not all of the animals were willing to be photographed but my favorites–the polar bears—were very photogenic today!!! Enjoy the show!!!

I have had such a great couple of days!!! I took my 11 year old niece for a couple of days of auntie-niece time and we had a blast! We went to Columbus and spent the night —-ate our way through the 2 days, shopped, went swimming and today we went to the Columbus Zoo which was a lot of fun! We were expecting rain both days but decided to just “go for it” on Tuesday so with a stop at Walmart to get rain ponchos we were on our way. We never used them……but the $8 investment was what kept the rain away so well worth it! When we got to the zoo we were not allowed in as they were doing a “practice escaped animal capture” or some such thing…….they kept repeating to us that it was good practice for them in case it ever happened….all I know is that it was weird to have gotten there at opening time and not be allowed in for a half hour. Oh well. After we got in we had a great time. It was hot, hot, hot!!! Hit 95 degrees and in a zoo that is like 300 degrees I think!!! So we cooled off in the places where we could and tried not to melt in the sun!
