The Zoo!

We were privileged enough to be able to go to the zoo this summer. We haven't been in years, since our older two boys were little. We went with my husbands' sister and her three kids. Here is a friendly giraffe, 'Give me something to eat!' (See his mouth open and waiting? People kept feeding him-or her- giraffe crackers you could buy there.) There was a baby giraffe, less than a month old, there. It was soooo cute! I didn't get a picture of it, it was too far away. (Don't forget, you can click on these pictures to get a bigger picture, too.)
Here are some wallabies, or joeys, the lady said; nearby this exhibit. They were cute, too. We got to see a baby wallaby, too, and pet it. (There was a BIG container of hand sanitizer nearby, that we used afterwards...)

And *THE* animals (?) I could not wait to see, budgies!!

We got to feed them with a stick. (Something stuck on the end of the stick, they loved it.) They were so colorful and cute. I can't wait to crochet one of Cupcakes budgies (in my free time-HA!). I will never forget seeing these guys at the zoo. I hope they will bring them back again some year. Tomorrow we will be picking my mom up at the train station to visit us for a week~Yay! So if I am gone for a while, you know why... ;p

Sounds like a lot of fun going to the zoo, esp if the kids are so thrilled.
I love looking at giraffes...
Its been a very long time since I've been to the zoo, well that was when my sons were kids...
