In between doctors' appointments we did some really fun activities! Call it a week of no-books but lots of fun field trips! :)
The first thing we did was go to the giraffe center. At the center we were able to feed and pet all the giraffes. They were so cute and so fun! If you tried to get near them when you didn't have food, you would get a solid head-butt. Haha! We also learned some really fun things about giraffes... like the fact that in the wild they are the security guard for many other animals, so they almost never sleep. At the most, they get about 15-30 minutes every day or two. (My kids all said that they wish they were giraffes...haha!) They also have really heavy bones so their kicks can kill a predator. And they have reeeeaaalllly long tongues!
Katelyn, oh Katelyn...haha! Apparently their saliva is antiseptic...at least that was the other "fun fact" that they told us... haha!
Aren't they such amazing creatures?
Talitha loved feeding the baby giraffe...he probably loved having someone on his level to feed him!
They also had tortoises at the center.
What's with all the kissin' around here??
