Fun at the Zoo

Look at these kids - they were SO EXCITED! We went to the zoo with our friends Jamie and Laura. They are experienced zoo goers and were able to really show us the ropes.

Being the animal purist that I am - I had a little hesitation about going... Many of the animals had really nice habitats - and some had areas that I felt could be so much better. But, I remember that hopefully these animals will bring awareness for children and adults about their preservation, and they sure don't lack for food - which their wild counterparts do.

The flamingos were so pretty - their wing tips had black feathers and their knees were pink!

Loved the giraffes the most. If I had my choise, they would be the ones I would work with.

The elephants were just beautiful. The baby that we saw at Thanksgiving last year is getting big. She was very playful. These guys are really hard on their area - there wasn't much grass.

Looks like SO much fun! I know the kids loved seeing all the animals. Glad it was good weather for you, too. Nice to have good 'zoo' friends---and I mean, your guides, Laura, Jamie, and Teresa!
