We at lunch outside - a little windy, so too cold for my liking - but I did bring some food that I prepped last night (no pictures, because I was aiding children in opening condiment packets and cookies, etc). I had chilled millet with pieces of grilled chicken, frozen black grapes, a large carrot, a tiny crabapple, and a piece of dark chocolate caramel with sea salt from Whole Foods - MMM!!!
I took my group around the zoo and rainforest and was able to take pictures of our adventures :)
African Elephant Crossing
A small python
Up-close and personal with the giraffe - I can't believe how long their tongues are!
A wolf sleeping in the Wolf Wilderness Lodge
The Bald Eagle
A beaver swimming in the Wolf Lodge - I don't think he leaves the water too much living with a pack a wolves!
Swims with the beavers
Reindeer - the kids were looking for Santa Claus!
The grizzly bears took over the old polar bear exhibit
The seal and sea lion enjoyed the weather - we learned the seal (the smallest one) is the oldest: 26! And the big sea lion is 23.
The anteater - we didn't see any ants though
The kids loved watching the Francois' Langur monkeys play and groom each other!
The Orangutans - baby Daniel is now 7 years old!
They love the Blue Poison Dart Frog!
I had to use my flash to show the kids the bats all huddled upside-down together
They love the aquariums!
The awesome chameleon - I just love his color!
I had a great day at the soon, but I am exhausted! I fell asleep after I got home..on the floor, while watching the sad Pirates game - praying for a win Wednesday! I also went to a springboards class tonight and have a workout lined up every night this week :) I also have a shortened school day by an hour and twenty minutes - which is a big deal when you're the teacher :) I am teaching math tomorrow- yay!
Come on weekend!!!
