We have monkeys.

The other day we were out walking by the creek and Lilo started having a conniption fit at the base of a tree.

We looked up and The Baby spotted them... monkeys.


Lilo wanted them. Bad.


There were at least 4. A mama and 3 babies. But they kept moving and I had a hard time getting photos of them.




Aren't they cute little monkeys??

I love seeing the mama ones with babies. In the last photo she seems worried about your doggie!

Be careful those monkeys will bite! And they love peanut butter.

Aw, so cute! Living in the city I don't see many animals. Let alone exotic ones like monkeys!

Thankfully I have a cat though;)

cute, maybe. But, watch out for them. They can be so mean. One attacked my dad once... had to get rabies shots and all. Not good. Very. BAD.

LOL! I don't know what's better, your sense of humor or the fact some people don't get it. ;) We had some monkey's like that one time...ate all our cat food. Hmm..

Beki: We have those kind of monkeys around here too. They dont come out much in the daylight though. P.S. Did you know that today is National Smores Day. I read how much you love them.

I think your monkeys have been visiting in our attic. So nice to have our very own live-in safari: http://www.destinationsdreamsanddogs.com/whats-in-the-attic/.

Yours may be cuter since they're... outside!

The Baby thought they were monkeys. The grown ups knew they were raccoons. ;-)

Peggy, s'mores day?! YAY!!

So cute - love the pictures! These little monkeys creep me out, though! Me and nature don't mix, but I'm content to enjoy it through others :)
