Trip to the zoo

The girls and I took Dad to the zoo last Friday. We ate a picnic lunch by the donkeys--yes, Dad brought his cooler! We saw the cute koala bears, but we think the ring-tailed lemurs and meer kats are more fun. The girls rode the new endangered species carousel; Kaylin and Dad sat on the peacock, Macy rode the Zebra. Truman the tiger was already taken. :(

But the real excitement was the Lorikeet feeding. 25 people are given tickets (I sweet-talked the 70-year-old into giving us the tickets early!) to feed the birds. You're given a cup of nectar, and they land on you to drink.

Macy chickened out, Kaylin tried, but Dad stole the show. He had three birds on him for a long time, and then one climbed onto his head. Everyone was crowded around watching, and one boy was getting jealous. The girls loved it, and as much as he won't admit it, Dad did too.
