I love field trips! Last week Jeremy and I were chaperones for Emma G’s field trip to the zoo. We were only responsible for three first graders, and still we only scratched the surface of what there was to see. At least they saw what was at the top of their list!
After living in Africa right by a game park, the zoo experience is usually just “Eh” for me, but I have to admit seeing this cheetah was pretty cool. I’ve only seen cheetah a handful of times in S. Africa. They’re hard to spot!
It seemed we couldn’t make it fast enough to the giraffe. They wanted to pet them so badly! Since I refused to pay $5 for three pieces of lettuce, it took a bit of coaxing to get them to come over to us.
Feeding the goats was more in our price range (only 50 cents), and I think the girls loved it!
Nothing compares with a true African safari, but I have to admit the “safari” through the Dallas Zoo made for some happy 1st graders and a fun day indeed!
