Welcome to The Cleveland Zoo

One of the places Gerard and I often go is to the Cleveland Zoo. It is very big and the exhibits are spread out so it's a great place to walk and get some exercise. Before I was married, I'd often go alone just because it was safer than walking alone on the streets of Cleveland. I love animals and have taken many, many pictures of them over the years but have included a couple slide shows from 2007 that I recently made that are at the bottom of my blog.

On May 17, Gerard and I participated in the Great Strides walk to help raise money for Cystic Fibrosis research at the Cleveland Zoo. A friend of ours has a 3-yr-old daughter, Cassidie, with this disease so we walked on their team. Cassidie's Crew raised almost $9,000!

Here's a video of one of my favorite animals, the Red Panda, and Gerard's favorite, the tiger. Both these animals usually just lay around but this time they were very active, perhaps because it was on the cool side in the upper 50s.

This is the first look we had at the baby Red Panda that was born in our zoo last year. I think these are so cute and would just love to pet them. They have sharp teeth. The flip video camera I got for mother's day is so easy to use and small to carry.

The tigers were walking around and even playing with each other.

Aww, zoos are great. We also have a big zoo in Cairo which Chica and Pumuckl have visited last week.

Thank you for your help yesterday. They have fallen in love again :-)
