The weather has been so great lately that we couldn't pass up an opportunity to visit the Phoenix Zoo. I only work a few days a week, and Camaron usually has mornings open, so we were able to make it over there right when it opened! Actually, we were a little early. It was weird. We're seriously never early. If we have the chance to go again soon, though, we'll do our best to be early again. It was awesome being there right when it opened. There were not many visitors there yet, and we got to see the animals eating breakfast. With Arizona being so hot, the animals are usually hiding in the shade sleeping whenever I've been to the zoo in the past. It was so neat seeing them exploring their habitats and even coming up close to us. We saw baboons eating bugs off each other, an Elephant eating lettuce and walking right up to us, a bear chillin on a rock, lions doing their thing, a rhino trying to hide behind a tree... you know, the regulars.
Fox had a blast. He loves animals. I think my favorite part of the experience was when we were looking at a desert fox, along with a few other people. And I asked Fox to spell fox. He quickly spelled it out. I immediately noticed the other people were very impressed. Little did they know it's the only word he knows how to spell, because it's his name. It was such a "You've Got Mail" moment! F...O...X!
P.S. Did you see that family selfie?! We're so talented.
