A Day At The Zoo!

I have mixed feelings about zoos. In one hand, the animals are not in their natural habitat. It’s not fair to them! On the other hand, zoos can help bring back endangered species and provide care for sick animals. They also provide educational benefits for people who otherwise would never get to see these animals.

Anyway, being at my dad’s this week has been all about Talia. My dad knew of a zoo he wanted to take her to, so we went. It was really well kept, the staff was great, and everyone had a great time. This zoo in particular is helping with at least on endangered species, and interestingly, also grows most of their own food!

Talia had fun, I promise! The petting zoo was last and she was exhausted.

Someone almost lost a finger because he didn’t read the sign!

Someone got an elk to eat right out of her hand. She loved it!!!!

Today we are off to Gettysburg! I love history!!! I do have a novel based on the Civil War sitting on a shelf at home. Maybe this will prompt me to pull it out and finally finish it!
