Wednesday, December 31, 2008's the end

I made it though another year.
Somewhere along the line...I got off count a bit.
I can't believe this is the end of my 2nd year of taking a picture a day. I have been contemplating whether I could continue on for 2009.
I think I will try...I have a list of photo prompts this time and maybe if I get stuck with the girls in school and such I will refer to the list and get a jumpstart on my mojo so to speak.
So all that to say...I'm here again for 2009. I am excited to see where this year will take me and my family.

364 Zoo Trip

Two girls and a saguaro cactus.
Maybe, this should be my Christmas card shot for next year.
Will keep it in mind :)
Lone big horn sheep on the butte

They are the same size as an emperor penguin.
We got 3 copies of a book this Christmas called the Little Penguin.
It is all about an baby Emperor Penguin.

Very cool experience...petting stingrays.

On the look out for another stingray to pet.
They were really brave and petted quiet a few.
I did too. lol
This is the 2nd year we have gone to the zoo on New Year's Eve. Our weather has been awesome and it was a gorgeous day.
We even met up with a family friend and her daughter.
