We just took a trip to the zoo. We saw gorillas eat salad, elephants mix mud with water then throw it on top of themselves, howler monkeys howl, snakes twisting around each other, toucans fly back and forth, a baby wallaby jump around, penguins eat fish, a turtle try to climb up a fence, a flamingo run into the audience during a demonstration, and a brave squirrel that came up to the stroller to get one of Seth's crackers! It was a busy day for most of the animals - except the hippo, who according to the info card can stay submerged up to 10 minutes, and he did! The kids loved seeing all the different kinds of life; it was a perfect opportunity to teach them of God's creation. "O Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures (Psalm 104:24)."
