Field Trip!

The best way to slow down in life is go to the zoo and walk. It had been so long since we did something like that I decided it needed to be done. Life is too hectic. There is something about watching an elephant fiddle with a barrel that makes you stop and slow down. Great idea! Huh! Everytime we visit the zoo we have somehow gotton a picture of the kids on this Lion. Daphne was trying desperately to get on but there just wasn't any room. I think she was kneeling on it's back. I am always impressed how this elephant looks so real. You can see every wrinkle. We have a picture of Daphne sitting here when she was 18 months old. With a little white eyelet hat.
Sorry Daphne you're not quite the Spring Chick you once were...You've blossomed into a full grown swan.

In case you have never seen the Mexican Maned wolf here it is. When it walked it looked like it was walking on stilts. It was wierd.
This was the funniest little meercat. This is how Henry sits leaning up against the wall or the door waiting for someone to let him in. It is a crack-up to see.
Daphne took this picture of her brothers and Dad in the monkey cage. Not really, it was the giraffe feeding platform. Except you can't feed them anymore. Bummer. So now I guess it is a caged observation deck.

I love the picture of the Meercat, that is hilarious. You need to post the picture of Daphne sitting on the elephant when she was little.

One of these days I would like to go on a field trip with you. These pics are great. Did Jared get my birthday card with the $ in it? Did he like it? I thought Daphne was actually sitting on a live elephant's trunk. Too cool.
