October 16, 2011 - the Zoo
We start at the zoo where Kelly (not Tara) does some yoga.
Ella isn't concerned when a particularly evil-looking bird casts her a sideways glance.
Ella wants to see the giraffes, so that's where Carey takes her (though I think Ella may have led the way).
A baby hangs out near a big bull.
Nice kisser, big fella.
She thinks the leaves are better on his side.
We really like this habitat.
A big ole antelope. I forgot what kind.
Ella hangs out on the gorilla statue.
She gives him a big hug!
She gives him a kiss, too.
In the aviary, we meet some funky pheasant.
We always have to take this shot.
Ella loves the lemurs, having finally recently learned the difference between them and monkeys.
A golden pheasant, a zlaty beznant in Slovak, which makes for a tasty, cheap beer (unless you're about to take a long bus ride and you have the bladder of a VanFosson).
Not sure, but this one doesn't conjur up pictures of a relative bolting from a bus to 'write' the ECU fight song in the snow.
Ella, loving another gorilla statue!
Giving her best horny jack russel impression?
Carey, Ella, and I check out a real gorilla.
Ella is brave and heads into the mole rat exhibit.
She continues through the rat tunnel.
Finally, we see the naked mole rats.
A sun bear enjoys the autumn weather.
A mama tiger is on the prowl.
A panda is outside again!
Another great day at the zoo.
