It probably wasn't the best idea to go on such a busy day.
It was SO crowded that it was almost unenjoyable.
One of the big attractions for the day was that Elmo was going to be there.
Naptime and crazy crowds interfered with the full zoo experience, but we did manage to see a few sights....
Always nice to see the animals...

I have to say that the giraffe is my new favorite animal.
And she was so friendly.
(Actually, I have no idea if it's a female, but those eyelashes looked like they had mascarra on them, so I made that scientic determination on my own. Impressive, I know.)
