Brrr!! (which rhymes with grrr!...but in a good way)

Photo 52, Week 6:  Brrr!!

This week's theme is a cool one, and it reminded me that I hadn't yet seen
how the young leopards and tigers are getting along with winter.

So I felt obligated to pay them a visit.
(You have to pass the grizzlies to get to the leopards.)

Apparently, brrr and grrr are very complementary.

I had a hard time narrowing it down this week--
winter is so photogenic!

Those are some pretty impressive snow sculptures. And some pretty impressive children : ).
What a fun day. Kaishon LOVES the zoo. Like, loves it is so much, if I told him we were going to move to the zoo, he would die of happiness. I should take him soon.
