Illustration Friday - Memories of the ZOO!





This week's theme reminded me of one of my favorite zoos....the Elmvale Zoo...It is a place we visit often when up at the cottage in Wasaga Beach. This year was the first year we took our son Cole...he loved it and was in awe at the giraffes...and all the other wonderful animals....I remember when my husband and I started going there ....when we dated...I threw a slice of banana at this monkey and accidentally squared it in the you know whats...(nuts anyone) hehehe ....I laughed so hard when this happened because the monkey was holding his privates and once he heard me laugh he mimicked my crazy laugh....Brad and I laughed and laughed ....good memories!

I did two takes on the theme this week....one take on my fond memories and a cute funny take on animals at the HUMAN zoo...lol....and I just had to add some photos of our son on his first trip to the Elmvale zoo...one with him checking out the giraffe or was the girrafe checking him out...and another with him and the pink flamingos...

Well I hope you enjoy them...

Cheers,

Diana
