Hi!

I feel like this image needs some explanation. Our family loves giraffes, so we decided to pay them a visit and say "hi". When we walked up to the viewing area (which is elevated), the giraffes were far away. I had just bought the kids an ice cream, so we decided to wait to see if they'd come closer. The zookeeper went on to say that it was rare to have the baby giraffes come up to eat. After the kids finished eating their ice cream they asked if they could feed the giraffes ($2 for a frozen eucalyptus leaf) ~ what was I going to say? So we waited some more... and to our delight (Luck) two giraffes came up to eat (1 of which was the baby). We walked up to the line, my daughter reached out her leaf, I reached out the Panda ~ click & munch. :)
