ZOObilation!

Last night Mawmaw and Pawpaw joined us for Zoobilation at the Audubon Zoo.  Mawmaw and Stella had a great time in the car on the way there...
Stella was enthralled by the "What's in That Box?" Gameshow...


Stella got up close and personal with the elephants and even got to peak behind the scenes in their house...



She returned to the petting zoo to visit her friend the rat...



She also got to watch the zookeepers bathe a piggy...



Stella and Sadie petted a snake while their mothers cringed in the background.  Apparently we need to revisit the story of the Garden of Eden...



Did I forget to mention that we enjoyed this outing with the Guillory girls?  Emma and Sadie gave one lucky goat a complete makeover...



While Mawmaw and Stella styled another...



In spite of signs warning that this pig bites, Daddy allowed Stella to offer him some dirt for a treat...



That's some terrific, radiant, humble, thing-a-ma-jig of a pig!



I'm no Dara, but I love this snapshot of Kelly and her baby girl...



Do you think Sadie has heard the phrase, "Say cheese!" a time or two?



Mawmaw, Stella, Talia, and Damon checked out a lizard on our way out of the petting zoo...



Stella really wanted to eat Emma and Sadie's cheetos, but was willing to settle for her first cotton candy instead...



Yum!



Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?  No, it was a giraffe...



I helped Talia feed the giraffes.  I know this is hard to believe, since I am terrified of all wildlife.  My terror alert was additionally elevated by my fear that the giraffes were going to forgo their treats in favor of licking the cheeto dust off of Talia's sweet little face... 



After feeding the giraffes, we set out for the sea lion show, where we watched them receive their enrichment time, also known as "play time..."



Remember, we are fresh from the giraffes at this point, and let's just say that Stella was the recipient of a lot of giraffe spit on her hands.  She says it's yummy...



She even offered Daddy some!
