First outing: Oakland Zoo. We went here every two weeks, or sometimes more often, last summer, so it's strange that this year it's our first trip.
We were treated to the male lion roaring and prancing, a giraffe shimmying down for a drink of water, elephants relieving themselves in a big way, lots of goat and sheep petting, and fruit bats napping. The girls were on foot and they probably walked about 2 miles. Robin never asked to be carried. The outing was topped off with two rides on the carousel.
Pictures! (just a few, I promise)
* To AmyCS: The picture of the giraffe licking herself is for you. Erin first started by observing, "Look, that giraffe has a purple tongue." Subsequent observations, "Look! He's licking his penis! He's licking his penis!. Oh, wait. No, She's licking her vagina!" I nearly died.
