Yesterdays trip to the zoo was the perfect outing. The kids love the animals, and the tons of treats mommy can’t help but buy. Darn those gift shops.
I have a giraffe collection at home that is endlessly aided and abetted by numerous family members. It is plain to see why I love giraffes, they are beautiful creatures that are not camera shy. The first picture I took yesterday, the second I took a few years ago. The second is one of my all time favorite pictures, without kids of course. It totally shows what gentle giants giraffes are.
The kids enjoyed the animals, N decided he wanted a turtle, now to convince daddy. M wanted a penguin, she did get a stuffed one. By the end they were a cranky bunch. It didn’t take long for M to fall asleep, with toy lion in mouth!
