Gotta love the zoo...

This is an old picture of my sister Melinda, my daughter Christy, and me at the Jackson Zoo. Christy was around 2 years old. Melinda was 11 years old. I was almost 19 years old. Christy and I were both dressed in pink! We even loved pink back then. Check out those pink socks that I was wearing! lol

This one was taken many years later at the New Orleans Zoo. Me, Chase and Christy. They were both 14 years old. We were on a school field trip. I remember that the class walked over to the 'Hard Rock Cafe' to eat before we went home. We rode a charter bus with the school and I had the worst headache whenever we got home. Those kids were so loud on the bus, plus they had t.v.'s on too. It was all worth it though. I miss those times when the kids were little.

I WAS talking about you in my post. lol!! Isn't that funny that I found one right after I had commented on yours? The lady really had just brought it in minutes before we walked through her booth. ;)
Oooh, I can't wait to see pictures of your cannisters, how funny is that that I found the matching cake carrier, or actually Mr. Rose did. We DO have the exact same taste. We would be dangerous shopping for treasure together, but how fun would that be?? We would need an extended cab dually and a trailer to haul our treasure home!! Hope you have a wonderful Monday!!
