Fun at the Zoo

Today was my first day of manning the giraffe stand at our local zoo!! It was so interesting! I got a chance to really experience the different personalities of the two giraffes. The female, Zuri, was more timid and shy than the larger male, Hodari. This being said, she still enjoyed her fair share of goodies to eat, including poplar leaves and rye crackers. It was also amazing to witness the interaction between the zoo visitors and the enormous giraffes. The little kids were for the most part apprehensive about sticking their little fingers near the slimy tongues of Zuri and Hodari, but after the first leaf, most quite thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Many adults also loved feeding the giraffes too..and the giraffes were definitely not opposed to it either! Here is a picture of the majestic Hodari!!

Its Great to Be Back

     First of all, I want to wish everyone a very happy St. Patrick's Day! I feel bad about neglecting this blog for as long as I have, but I'm going to try and change that! In the past few months, snow has been plaguing our area, along with everywhere else it seems! Don't get me wrong, I love snow and all the exhilarating activities, but it does get old after a while. Luckily, all four of the little fur balls (Pie, Midnight, Sunny, and Charlie) absolutely love the snow! Pie has been completely content with digging in the snow and flipping it all over, including on top of Midnight. Charlie and Sunny have learned that running atop four foot tall can be quite exciting. Here are some pictures of my little babies from the last few months..enjoy!
