248 of 365 memories....I went on down to the Audubon Zoo and they ALL asked for you!!

Aubudon Zoo is by far one of my favorite places to go in New Orleans. I have memories of walking every square inch of that place. I walk in and I know exactly where to find the white tigers, the seals, the alligators. One of our very first "treats" to ourselves MANY MANY moons ago, was buying a yearly membership for me, Brian and Alex when Alex was 2 years old.

Of course our membership expanded :)
And so did the memories!!

We hadn't been to the zoo since the April before the storm (2005).
I was a little emotional walking in, I don't live here anymore.
Will it still feel the same?
I think NOT living here anymore, makes me see the beauty so much more than I ever did.

I hope you enjoy a little bit of my n'awlins......
