Hanging out with the wild animals

Yesterday Karen and I took the kids on a field trip to the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve .  It was an amazing place; they have a lot of neat animals and, unlike the zoo where animals tend to hide or ignore visitors, most of their animals are interested and come as close as they can to socialize.  The kids spent at least half an hour interacting with a chimp, playing "copy cat" and trying to impress each other.

I'm not sure, exactly, how it happened...but I got so engrossed in the whole experience that I took NOT ONE picture of the kids while we were there.  I feel sad about that, but it is what it is :(

But here's a picture of the peacock who was showing off for us...
 ...and here is Karen, who at 37 1/2 weeks would be considered full-term, but who kindly behaved while we were on our trip! :)

I know that feeling, where what you're doing is so fun that the camera stays away! Glad you had a fun field trip!
