Pink Saturday ~ L.A. Zoo

Welcome to another round of Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.


The week before Christmas I met my brother, SIL, young niece, older niece, and grand nephew at the Los Angeles Zoo. Our very first stop was to have a look at the Pink Flamingos. Leonard and Mandy were giving me a hard time and as soon as we spotted the Pink Flamingos they said “Oh perfect for Pink Saturday”.Β After this stop weΒ were off to see the other animals in the Zoo. My full Zoo post will be for ABC Wednesday next week since we are on Z. Yep they had to kid me about that one, too.


This is my brother Leonard with his daughter Hope who turns 1 this month and me and my grandnephew Jackson who just turned 4 in November. He’s holding the map and helping us navigate. Mandy, Hope’s mother and Michelle, Jackson’s mom were ahead of us and Michelle took this photo.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007 to 2015 hostage and has replaced them all with ugly black and grey boxes asking for a ransom to have them re-published. Such a frustrating bother as I go through each post to delete the ugly boxes.

  1. Happy Pink Saturday, Ellen.

    Your day must have been so much fun. These are some of the best flamingo photos I have seen. I have loved flamingos since I was a child.

  2. Oh how I love the pink flamingo’s! There so graceful standing on their one leg. I haven’t been to the L.A. Zoo in about 20 years…isn’t that sad!
    Have a fun Pink Saturday Ellen B.

  6. Hi Ellen,
    I wasn’t planning on starting MM until January 19th…not this Monday, but the next Monday, 19th. That’s the day I’ve been “advertising it as starting.” Is that the Monday you were talking about when you mentioned being ready? I sort of wish I had it start this Monday since there’s been so much interest. Susan

  13. Looks like you all had a great time at the zoo. I have not been to one in a while. I think the last time was the one in Naples, Florida. That we did in 2003. So yeah, that would be awhile. You got some great pictures of the flamingos for Pink Saturday!
