Lions and Tigers

Today I took the kids to see "Amazon John."  It was a free show put on by the local library.  All you needed to get in was some canned goods...easy enough!  The kids were excited when I told them they would see some different animals, however they were disappointed that it wasn't the zoo.  I guess they expected tigers to be brought into the elementary gym!  ha! 

Waiting for the show to start!


"Amazon John" and "Bear"  The dog was actually quite entertaining.  He could do several tricks, and was called Bear because when Amazon John pointed to him he was trained to show his teeth and snarl!  The kids thought it was hilarious! (ok maybe I did too!)

Some critter that looks sort of like a monkey, but it's not.  He said its an animal that's on Diego all the time...I will have to watch the cartoon to remember its name!

The kids were in awe most of the time...I need something like this everyday!

At the end of the show you could pet any of the animals you wanted, well all except the monkey thing.  There was a snake, bullfrog, rabbits, grasshoppers and a turtle.

Petting the "bear"

I don't think I saw anyone pet these!

Bubba the bullfrog...he was HUGE!!

He wouldn't touch the turtle!

Neither would she!

All and all it was a great few hours with friends, and critters!  Plus I got to use my NEW camera....

This isn't my exact one, but close.  I got a Canon T3 with 2 lenses.  I'm SUPER excited!!!  Unfortunately today I had to use the dreaded "auto" mode because I haven't been able to practice with it much.  BUT have no fear I will be the annoying camera lady soon enough! ha!

On another note I'm looking for some good blogs to add to my reading addiction.  So if you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments!  Thanks :)  And thanks for reading :):)
