Thanks for all of the sweet birthday wishes!

We spent the day at the park and saw some amazing sights! (like the flamingos in my new banner)

I’m joining Tex for the

Good Fences party.

I'm glad you had a good birthday and saw some wonderful things. I am soooooo jealous of the flamingos - how I would love to see one in the wild. Your header is amazing. And I WILL remember not to swim in the alligator pool - eeeeek.

Glad you had such a great birthday! That was the only thing about having a January birthday and living in the North....many were canceled because of bad weather! LOL!
Love those beautiful flamingos!

Jen Vandervoort said...

Happy Birthday! What a treat to see such beautiful birds on your birthday...and is that Alligator for real?

I have only seen Flamingos when I was a little girl...they had them at the park...it stuck with me forever...they are so beautiful.

Opening your blog made me smile - those flamingos are amazing! Don't worry, I WON'T go swimming with the alligators.

Linda Kay said...

Diane, those flamingos are very strange birds, right? Really? No swimming with the gators? Funny. Looks like a great spot.

LV said...

A great place to take a very nice stroll.

Maggie Ann said...

Happy Belated Birthday! Are you ever afraid of the gators? Its wonderful how much outdoor stuff you and your husband do. I'm envious of your warm weather!

Carla from The River said...

Happy Birthday!
Guess what? Alligators are my favorite. I have some alligator figurines ;-)) And I really have no idea why I like them so. But I do. We went to a museum that showed how a momma alligator calls her babies. I just stayed in that part and listened. Ha, so I would have loved to have joined you on your hike.
Thank you for taking me along in photos.
xx oo
