Not Over it Yet

I have been attending the zoo regularly for almost 12 years now, and irregularly for almost 20 years before that.  How am I not sick of this place?  I still just love going.  Admittedly, I probably wouldn't go quite as often as I do if I didn't have my dear Sis-in-Law Sheri who is a true super-fan, but I would definitely still go.  I'm grateful that she passes along some of her enthusiasm to me.  And especially exciting this month is the new African Savannah exhibit that is opening up.  The first section to be open is the new lion enclosure and I will tell you, it is something else.  The architects really came up with a neat way to showcase these amazing predators.  I can't wait for the rest of the new exhibit to open!

Last night the zoo had a members-only Sunset Safari when the zoo was open until 9p.m.  We basically blew off homework and practicing in order to have a family outing on a perfectly beautiful spring evening.  So lovely.  I adore the evenings that our family gets to spend together, just us.  And a few lions.

You know that thing about how a picture is worth a thousand words?  Well, this is a pretty good case in point.  How about 20 pictures are worth a short story about a family's perfect evening at the zoo?

We had to have a little talk about "it's not a good idea to lick the carousel."
