At The Zoo in 2002


Kangaroo at the Zoo

Off the marked trail

Grand-daughter chose to peruse

Running with the Roos

Not recommended by Zoos

Gave Grandma a fright

To see her run with delight

Trying to catch the Hoppers

But G-ma was able to stop her

Caught her before they bopped her

Choka

At the Zoo with all 4 of my grand-kids.

There is an area you can walk on a path near the kangaroos. Signs say “Please Keep On Path”. Youngest grand-daughter age 2 breaks loose of my hand and takes off running to try to catch a kangaroo! Thankfully I caught her before the Roo did!
