Welcome back to Throw Back Thursday!
Here we are (me, Mike and Barb) at the San Diego Zoo! Not sure when, probably late 60's, I look like I'm maybe 5 years old. When I showed this to my husband Mike, he said, "Oh man, that brings back memories." We're the same age and grew up in the same town...so we have a lot of the same experiences. Back then, you could get into the zoo free if you were under the age of 16. I remember ditching in high school and hanging out at the zoo all day. When I was little, like in the photo, we used to be able to feed the animals at the zoo. Peanuts for the elephants and marshmallows for the spider monkeys. I remember the monkey's little hands reaching out through the cage for the treats...it was scary and exciting at the same time.
This picture I love! Barb (back then we called her Barbie) and I on a swing set. I'm screaming my head off about something...Barb probably pinched me! haha
Grandaddy and I on the carousel at Marshal Scotty's Playland Park. Grandaddy was a real cowboy, he used to break horses.
