My Favorite Pictures - October

Hello Swappers and Friends!

Here are my photos for October - I hope you like them!

These first two were taken at the Metro Richmond Zoo.  I had been wanting to see the giraffes there for a few weeks, so one Saturday morning, I got up and went!  Our zoo's giraffe exhibit lets you get very close and you can feed them zoo food.  How fun!

These next 4 pictures are from a quick road trip to Virginia Beach for work.  I am a regional sales manager for my company, and I cover all of Virginia and parts of West Virginia.  I love staying at the oceanfront any time I head to the Tidewater area of the state.  The sunrises are spectacular, and even a cloudy, windy day can have amazing sights!  

And my final picture for this month was taken at Game 5 of the World Series.  This is my brother and nephew.  We are lifelong Cubs fans and it's so exciting to watch them play in the World Series!  
I'm happy that they got to go to the game.  

That's it for this month - If we're partnered on Swap-bot, please post a rating for me.  And even if you're not assigned to send your swap to me, I'd love to see your pictures too.  Have a great month, and I'll catch ya next time!

MY PET email photo swap - from Happy Mom

Oh yes --- posting pictures of my dog is always fun!  I'm sharing both my dog, Princess Leia, and my son's dog, Pica.  Both dogs were adopted from shelters - Pica as a puppy and Leia had been a stray.  Pica lived with us for 2 years because my son couldn't keep her at his college apartment, so she's been part of our family since the beginning.  My son moved out of state, but Pica's been back to visit several times and just fits right in when she's here.  Leia has to be the most tolerant and patient "big cousin" ever -- she lets Pica take the spotlight, but I swear she's happy to be the queen again when Pica goes home!

Leia is some kind of spaniel mix - black and white, and 9 years old.  Pica is a hound mix - brown and black, 4.5 years old.  Hope you enjoy these photos!

Leia loves her walks!

Walking the two of them together isn't easy!
Always sitting pretty!
Rough day?
Pica has such long legs!

Yes, as a matter of fact, she is the queen!
More walks - can't get enough!

Looking out the bedroom window
Leia loves getting in the water on her walks

Looking for treats!
The game is on, and we're rooting for the Nats!

Thanks for taking a look at my photos - Hope you enjoyed meeting Pica and Leia!
While you're here, I hope you'll check out some of my previous blog posts. 
I'm enjoying being able to share my thoughts on here!

All the best,

Ilyse - Happy Mom
