Day 38 - Journey Into Africa


Our apartment seems to be where all of America's ants have decided to take up residence so the bug guy came today to spray. Since I have a little one we have to be out of the apartment for 24 hours so I am not at home to upload any images for today's pictures so I figured today will have to be my cheat day. I took this picture the same day as the cheetah when we took the Journey Into Africa tram around the park. I debated between the two so now you can see my other option.

If it weren't for your commentary, I'd have thought you'd been on safari.

I like this one. At my local zoo, the giraffes have a small yard. This giraffe looks so much grander with space to roam.
