More Snakes and Flamingo Love Too

Thank you, All, for the lovely comments and kind wishes. I appreciate them very much!

We had a wonderful week-end and a beautiful 13th anniversary. I know you'll all appreciate what we did and it will go to show what kind of man my sweet hubby is because it was his idea.

For our anniversary, we drove about 85 miles one way, just to go to Hobby Lobby. LOL! Then we went out to lunch and came home. LOL! I know most people wouldn't find that exciting but, hey, it made all four of us--including the kids--very happy. It doesn't get any better than that.

Since it was a long week-end, we also squeezed in a trip to Busch Gardens and, you know me, I have pictures to share.

First up is how I discovered just who--er, what--has been whispering sweet nothings in my hubby's ear. See:My daughter loves flamingos. So, we just had to go by their pen. While we were standing there, this one flamingo came up to my husband and started nuzzling him and gently nibbling on his ear. It stopped for a bit but came back and did it again. I not only got pictures; I checked out its ID number on its leg. Number 13.

Then we went on with our day only to return later in the afternoon. Sure enough, Number 13 came right back up to my husband and started nuzzling him again. She must have some crush on him. LOL! Anyway, this attracted the attention of one of the keepers who brought out a bucket of food and let us feed the flamingos. It was a lot of fun!

Of course, with our latest experience with snakes, you know I have to share some more snake pictures. Bryan asked me to get a shot of this snake:
Then this is what it did:
I'm glad there was a window between us even if it's not venomous! LOL!

Until next time, Happy Creative Time!
