Spring is in the air...
And I'm not just talking about my card.
Today my daughter and I went to our zoo. It is something we do together regularly when I have a day off.
Our zoo has had a baby boom lately...
a new baby elephant, a new baby otter and now 5 new baby penguins.
Did you know that baby otters are born not knowing how to swim? Their mommas drag them into and through the water to teach them.
Penguin babies know how to swim when they are born.
I love when I learn something new.
We even got to see the new flamingo exhibit.
My daughter took the most adorable picture of our two baby elephants.
The four year old big brother is cradling his little sister's trunk in his while they are standing forhead to forhead. She is only a few months old.
