Son-in-Love George’s company, Milwaukee Tools, held its picnic at the zoo. It was a good place and there were many small children. They handed us Milwaukee t-shirts as we entered. There were hundreds of people in bright red t-shirts. Andy and I had fun saying, “Look at that man in the red t-shirt”. Here are George, Owen, and then Cam in an ankle-length t-shirt heading to the food tent.
Andy and I enjoyed the food. The barbecue was delicious and I also enjoyed the potato salad and beans.
Owen and Cam climbed upon and empty picnic table and began dancing to the music . They are most energetic dancers.
When we finished our lunch, we headed out to look at animals. The zoo was crowded and there were red shirts everywhere. I took this picture of the giraffes and Andy pointed out the baby giraffe butt in the background for my animal butt collection.
Here is a better picture of the baby.
With the heavy glass wall enclosure, Cam could get within inches of the snow leopard. He was fascinated.
The train ride is always a favorite. Andy, Jennifer, and Cam sat in one car.
George, Owen, and I sat in the car behind them.
The last stop before leaving the zoo is always the carousel. I went aboard to take pictures but, not many of them turned out well.
The three Barton boys posed for me before the carousel started.
Cam chose a horse.
Owen chose a caribou.
Andy slept most of the way home.
