The Zoo

August 29, 2013


Taking the grandkids to the zoo… what could be more fun?  Recently, we made big plans to visit the Des Moines Blank Park Zoo with our grandkids (and their parents).  They were excited, we were excited.  We put sunscreen on Julia and Liam.  I charged the camera battery.  The temperature was in the low 80s so we were happy to have the mild weather.  We were ready to go!


When we got to the first stop at the zoo I pulled out the camera, got the kids posed, and ……… nothing happened.  I turned the camera off then turned it back on.  Nothing happened.  No lights blinked.  It was dead.  I opened the camera – –  and there was the problem.  I forgot to put the recharged battery back into the camera.

You will need to take my word, we did have a GREAT time.  It was fun to feed the fish and baby goats.  Plus, I did enjoy watching the graceful giraffes and rugged rhinos.  Each year the zoo has expanded and made improvements so it is now an amazing place for the city of Des Moines.  Our time was perfect, even if I forgot the batteries.
