Happy Sunday To All

Yesterday my youngest granddaughter and I spent the day at Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines. We had a great time visiting all the animals except all avian. They were secluded in their houses because the Avian Flu has hit Iowa. The zoo was taking all precautions necessary to keep the avian population safe. It was disappointing. However cautions need to be taken to ensure the safety of all the birds. Including our companion parrots.

The day was beautiful. A little chilly in the morning. However the sun came out in early afternoon making it a very pleasant day. The residents of the zoo were enjoying the sunshine as much as we were. Blank Park Zoo had many metal sculptures throughout. They were unique as well as lifelike. This is a small zoo. It's easy to see the entire zoo in a day. We mingled with the goats and llamas which was extremely fun. Yes, the llama spit but fortunately we were spared. Others were not as lucky. I think deep down llama's get a kick out of watching people's reaction to their antics.

Now that summer is nearing we will be spending more time outdoors. Perhaps we need a gift for that special person. Snowy Owl Emporium has quality handcrafted and unique gifts with easy shopping for those summer presents you need. Or perhaps you want to send a greeting card to friends and relatives to let them know you are thinking of them. I encourage you to use the Snowy Owl Savings of 10% off orders of $30 or more.
