Encounter with Pets and Animals


These photographs were taken 2 years ago (June 24, 2007), when we went to Pittsburgh Zoo in Pennsylvania. My son was only 5 months old then and Rylie was almost two years old.
With my sister in law Crystal and Bicolana friend who also live in Weirton, WV, Raquel Brady.


Here's me and Rylie beside the big aquarium..

Raquel and Rylie at the Polar Bear statue


Rylie is trying to catch the peacock.. Go anak!


The phyton spirit lol...
EJ didn't like the python lol.. Here are some of the wild animals... BEAR


ZEBRA

Elephants
Llama

Leopard

Polar Bear
Reindeer

Monkey family

    I had so much fun looking at your photos rose... dami ninyong adventure when you were here in the USA. Kelan pa lang kayo nag move dyan sa Korea? You said there is no snow there? pero I have seen in drama na may snow dyan, maybe in different place? For sure miss mo na ang US din ano. Pero ang naka advantage din dyan sa Korea malapit lapit lang din sa pinas... Oo nga pala do you have known Jean? she is living there too in Korea with her husband na Canadian may anak din cla na babae... nag momove cla mga 3 years ago na ata. Sige Rose till next time. Take care and kisses to the kids. Oo nga pala I had so much fun reading sa blogspot mo, I also like it a lot dahil you provided so many pictures in most entries. Keep it up!
