July 4th, 2011

Happy 4th of July everyone! For my American friends, it’s Happy Independence Day—and for everyone else—have a happy 4th anyways!

I thought I would share some of my mom’s pictures of the zoo animals that live down the road from us. My mom likes the farm animals best. Someday, I am going to be a little farming bear!

My mom loves chickens! This one has penciled feathers. It’s when the edges are a different color. A few different breeds of chicken can have these feathers, so Mom doesn’t know which kind of chicken she is.

This is the white Siberian tiger that lives there. There is also a orange one, and a lion and lioness. Sometimes, you can hear them roar for supper or lunch!tn_2011-06-25 Special Memories Zoo Walk Through (161)

This is a miniature Zebu cow. Mom overheard the lady who was watching the petting zoo call her Zara. She wanted to be Mom’s friend.

This is a Khaki Campbell duck. It’s a girl duck because there isn’t any curly feathers at the end of her tail. Mom loves ducks the most. She would have liked to pet one of the ducks, but she knows that they don’t care for it. It was better to take pictures instead.

Another thing that Mom likes a lot is koi. They’re those fancy goldfish that can live outside. Unfortunately, it looked like the zoo got rid of their koi. They did still have the pond and the water lilies though. They were very pretty!

We could share hundreds of pictures, so I better end now!

  1. We had burgers for tea for 4th July. It was good.

  2. Oh, I bet you would be such an adorable little farming bear!

  3. Nice pictures! G. says that she dreams about having 3 small chickens in our garden, I hope she'll convince Harr that that is going to be fun!

  4. Oh, Marlowe! You and your Mom have made me So Happy to see All these Delightful Animals! Thank you. Thank you! :o)
