Wordless Wednesday is live on thehealthymoms.net and talbertzoo.com. Link up to your Wordless Wednesday post. I noticed I haven’t updated this blog as often as I probably should. But, I never forget to post a Wordless Wednesday. This summer has been extremely busy here at the Talbert Zoo. We moved and I still have a ton of stuff at the old house. Kitty is involved in this summer camp at the Pioneer Center. And on Thursday we piled into a rented mini van for a cross country trip to Sacramento,…

Florida Vacation Part Five

After spending five days in sunny Florida we all resemble lobsters. I guess it is time to head back up north to Chicago.  I will miss the sun, sand and surf.  We all had a great time and I created lasting memories for my kids. Today we left our hotel and headed for the island early in the morning.  We took the kids to some of the local shops and visited one that had parrots outside in cages. The parrots are very colorful and most of them repeat everything that…

Florida Vacation Part Four

I am finally caught up!

Florida Vacation Part Three

Here I am once again typing on Wednesday night, and trying to recall the events of yesterday.  Here is the continuation of the Talbert Zoo’s Florida Vacation.

Besides, I woke that morning with a sore throat and felt a cold coming on.  We also heard rumors that it snowed back in Chicago on Tuesday, or maybe it was Monday.  Anyway, we…

Florida Vacation Part One

We left for sunny Florida on Friday afternoon when the kids got out of school.  The first leg of the trip went fairly well and we made it to Louisville, KY around midnight. After spending the night at a hotel we left Louisville at 8am Saturday morning. The drive on Saturday was beautiful. We enjoyed watching the seasons change from winter to spring the further south we got.  The trees went from barron to full leaves by the time we got down to Georgia.  A couple of traffic jams due…

South for Spring Break the Countdown is On!

When I was a kid growing up in Wisconsin, every single spring break we piled in our van and drove down to Bradenton, Florida. In the 1980’s we had brown full sized van which sat eight. My parents would be up front with my Dad behind the wheel. The middle of the van had two captain’s chairs. And the back had a bench seat which sat four. As the youngest of five children, I always sat in the back for the ride down to Florida. This was before car seats,…
