It had been over a year since we had seen Mimi and Papa, so way back in January, they came to visit. It was such a beautiful day outside that we decided to take them to the zoo. Would you believe it if I told you just a few days earlier we had snow on the ground?
We always enjoy the Gibbons when we visit. They do amazing acrobatic stunts, at least in my view, when they're swinging from the ropes or branches.
They now share their home with the elephants for our easier viewing pleasure. Since moving to this space it seems like they are more active when we visit.
Check out these crazy animals that climb logs. They don't even cage these guys up. They seem to roam free all over the zoo!
The tricks that these elephants perform are always fun to watch and the facts we learn about them are pretty amazing.
Anna wanted to take off and find the giraffes, so she and I snuck away while the others were were perusing the hyenas and foxes.
Then we came across the zebras.
Once I tried to get the lion to smile with Mimi and Rachel he turned away. He wasn't having any of it.
