Today we went to the zoo.
It was great as I got to feed the giraffes.  I wanted to feed them when we were in Florida last year but we didn't have time.
There are 10 all together.  3 girls, 6 boys and a baby (they didn't say what flavour it was).  The baby is 6 months old, is 8 feet tall and weighs 800lbs.
Just a little one then!!
They eat a lot of lettuce and greens to get water as it's so far for them to bend down.
We had our lunch right next to the feeding platform so we could sit and watch them.  When there's no one around they nod off.  It's really weird seeing them sleeping, standing up with their eyes open!!

I want to go back when it's not so hot so I can feed them again.  The highest temperature today was 104F (40C).  Yikes :0)


  1. Sounds like a good day. Make your next visit an autumn one. (Sorry, that should be in the Fall)

  2. I reckon December might be the perfect month to visit again ...

  3. Awww how cute - I never knew they slept standing up!
