Traveling Monsters Vol. 5

Cookie came to visit from Ohio. I didn't have a lot of time to take Cookie out, but she did come out to visit with my other sister who was up from FL.

My sister and her friend (she was staying with) came out my way on the train, which saved me a good 1.5-2 hour  drive.  On the way back there was no train for 3 hrs or so at the station near me, she had asked me previously if I could drive them to another station to get back (which is right near the ice cream place ... is where my mind immediately went to).

We hung out there for a bit and had ice cream of course.  We went looking for the peacock, he wasn't in the pen with the other animals (probably avoiding the numerous field trips and LOUD kiddos).

We found him hiding in the trees nearby.  I guess he liked having his photo taken, because when I stopped to go back and pick up my purse off the walkway, he called out ... and scared the bejeezus out of me!

And I went back and took  more photos ...

And almost stepped on a chippie.  I thought he was going to climb right up my back while I was squatting to get photos of the peacock.  I don't know if he's used to people being around or what, but he was fearless.

And poor Cookie was like hey I thought we were here to take photos of me?!?!

Ice cream and peacocks are very distracting!

Cookie is adorable. She's a petite little thing, isn't she!

Beautiful peacock photo. Isn't their screech horrible. Such a nasty noise from such a beautiful bird.

I actually heard one in our neighborhood last week, but I have no idea where he actually was.

The peacock is really beautiful. The chipmunk is actually not scaring me, maybe because it's a photo. Your monsters have amazing adventures.
