Afternoon at the Zoo
Today was gorgeous: 76 degrees, sunny, and perfect. Yes, that's right all you Minnesota folks, Ben was wearing shorts today! Hard to imagine, I'm sure, but it happened. Anyhow, since it was so gorgeous we decided to take Ayla to the zoo this afternoon. It was Ben's first visit, and we had a great time walking around, seeing the animals and enjoying the weather.
And next, we saw the evasive cheetah for the first time! According to my sister-in-law Janel, the cheetah is NEVER out where you can see it, and they had begun to think it wasn't even there at all. He was there today, sleeping right in the middle of his area, plainly visible. So I'm wondering if in the mornings (when Janel & the boys usually go to the zoo) if he's got a routine where he hides. We were there from about 1:30 - 3:30 in the afternoon today. Could be...in any case, we got to see him and we took a photo for proof that he was there:
