In late August, we headed to the zoo with our good friends, The Porter's. We had never fed the giraffes before but they were hungry and we were there at the right time SO we got to feed them (for a nominal fee ;) It was a REALLY cool experience. I may have forked over more money so I could try it and we could keep doing it. They have such long tongues and for being such big creatures, they were so gentle. I could have done it all day. There is just something about being able to be close to animals that gives me chills. What a special experience, it was definitely a highlight for us!
And these were taken with my iPhone so there was absolutely no zoom, that is how close we were. Amazing and priceless!
