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 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.
