Thursdays are for playin' hooky

***
I think it might have been Suzanne who said yesterday that "Thursdays are the new Friday".... I'll buy that!
***
A few Thursdays ago, you could find me here:
***
Richmond Braves vs. Durham Bulls -- good times, (although we lost)
***
***

My brother Pat with of his tax deductions

*** My nieces, SIL Jenny, and her dad

***

My little buddy quickly makes friends
***
***

Annual Easter Candy rush on The Diamond
***

The haul

***-------------------------------------

On another Thursday -- the Metro Richmond Zoo:

****

Postcard of one of their best exhibits. The zoo hopes these two will mate and produce white cubs

***

Gibbons

***

Giant Galapagos Land Tortoise

***

Hello, Mr. Giraffe!

***

Bactrian Camel

***

Hello Mr. Sheep!

***

My parents on the skyride

***

My niece hamming it up on the giraffe-go-round

***

My parents, my sister Terry, and her daughters

***

And finally, because we hadn't seen enough wildlife in one day, a wild bunny in my parents' yard:


No doubt re-energizing after his Easter toils

***

And this Thursday -- another plant sale!

Great pictures! I keep meaning to take my kiddos to the Richmond Zoo...They've never been to that one. Yet.

Whoa! i did say that. It was almost funny.

I try to make jokes all the time but my spouse rarely laughs at them. His dad laughs at them all the time though. Maybe Spouse feels threatened by my great humor...he was called Mr. Funny at school.....

Maybe not.

I've been to the Richmond zoo ages ago, and keep promising my daughter I'll take her again. Seeing those photos makes me want to go in a few weeks when my in-laws are here.

I haven't been to that zoo either, but I think we pass it when we go to NC. Actually, my kiddo may have gone without me. These pix make me want to check it out ~
