Zoo Friends ...

I recently subscribed to Smile Box, which is a fun and easy way to create slideshows, scrapbooks, and photo albums to organize and share your photos, videos, words, and music.

The thing I like most about Smile Box is that you can add music to your slideshows, either from their collection of over 2,000 songs, or from your own music on your computer. I love the challenge of finding just the right music to go with the subjects of my slideshows, and I think the music really makes an impact.

Today, I'd like to share a slideshow of photos I took in March at the Jackson Zoo. I wrote a post about our trip to the zoo, but I think this slideshow is much more fun with the whimsical "Baby Elephant Walk" playing in the background. I love some of these little guys.

Be sure you turn your sound up before clicking on "Play."

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Charlotte at Charlotte's Weblog, for honoring me with this pretty award:

Thanks, again, Charlotte ... I appreciate you thinking of me.

WOW I think the zoo should use your slideshow for their publicity campaigne! They wouldn't ever be able to find any more gorgeous pictures than the ones you took!

What a cute, spirited video. I had used smile box, but never thought of it for a post.
Very clever and creative :-)
