Best Shot Monday - The Zoo Edition

Last week we were lucky enough to have two gorgeous days, before the weather returned to being cold and gray. And so like anyone who dreads days that are cold and gray and force you to stay inside, the second that we had nice weather we rushed to do something outside. And what better outside, springtime activity than a trip to the zoo?!



It was a perfect day - the weather was gorgeous, the kids were all relatively well behaved, and a good time was had by all. And we even had lots of animals to see - apparently everyone wanted to enjoy the nice weather!

And my best shot from our trip to the zoo?

Because while it isn't technically the best, it does the best job of displaying just how glad we were to enjoy such a beautiful day.





To see what other people enjoyed last week, head to Tracey's for more BSM!

I know what you mean--the first nice day here I'm rushing them to the zoo, it just feels like the spring thing to do!

Great animal shots too, like you were right next to them!

You take such wonderful shots of animals!!! I never get good photos at the zoo...maybe it's our zoo.

I don't know about 'technically'...it looks pretty sharp and full of sunshine and cheer. I love the sculpture. We have some 'pigs' in the main street in town and kids love sitting on them to be photographed.

Just the look on his face alone is enough to earn BSM place I think. :) And those animals look pretty happy too!
