The Zoo

We took Beatrix to the Zoo!



She went to the North Carolina Zoo with her Aunt Michelle a couple of weeks ago and she liked it so much we decided to go to our [much smaller] Metro Richmond Zoo. Strange enough, even though I’ve lived here my whole life I had never been to the zoo. It was actually quite nice, and we had a great time. Beatrix’s friend Will and his parents came, too!

Feeding the giraffes was the highlight of the visit. They are a little on the greedy side…

“Hey, um, is that for me?”

These are African Penguins. Warm weather penguins… Who knew?

The zoo was a great time. My only regret is that it took us so long to make a visit. It certainly will not be long before we return.
