feed the giraffes, tuppens....er...dollars a bag.

that's right!  we fed the giraffes at the zoo last week!  it was so much fun!  i'm not sure i would've ever done it had stephen's cousin, wendy, not wanted to.  i'm so glad we did.  the wait really wasn't too bad, and it was so fun!  katie and her boys did it too (stephen's sister).  they give you two options of how to hold the biscuit when feeding it to the giraffe. one is holding it out in your open palm.  they warn you that if you choose that method, the giraffe's tongue will surely visit your hand as well.  or, you can hold it with your thumb and fingers to them.

  i opted for the first one, only cause i couldn't wait to get licked by a giraffe!  are you kidding?  it was soooo cool!  it's tongue was loooong and rough.  and black, i might add!  we bought 3 biscuits for $5 and got our turn to feed them.  as you can see, chloe was aprehensive to give the giraffe it's food.  but she held her hand out.  she didn't exactly make the food super accessible to him, so his tongue got longer and longer, until it finally got it's food.  it was hilarious.
sienna was enthralled with all of it.  she got right down to business and put that biscuit right where it should be.  there's no picture of me feeding the far giraffe...my little camera was out of memory.  darn it!  well, i'll just have to feed them again....pull my arm!  it was awesome!  the giraffe's tongue completely wrapped around my hand to get that food.  it felt so cool and weird.  i laugh just remembering it!
