Giraffe Encounter

The Sacramento Zoo is not huge. 
It doesn't have very many animals. It only takes about an hour to walk through the whole thing. But it is a quaint city zoo with affordable prices, a train, a merry-go-round, a reptile house and lots of shady trees. It is perfect for a little family outing, which is why we have passes and head there about three times a month.

You can also feed the giraffes for three dollars.  THREE DOLLARS!!! The problem is, the feedings are usually around 11 a.m. which coincides with naptime so we are usually long gone by then.   However, a couple months ago we timed everything just right and my dad was there to take some great shots of The Wombat's very first giraffe feeding experience....which happened to be me and Heidi's first experince too.

Landon was utterly fascinated by them but it gave me the heebie geebies. Their tongues are pretty creepy and for future giraffe encounters I would prefer to hide behind the camera and leave the feeding to Ben. 

Jaclyn wimped out so here is her version:
