a day at the zoo

it was a hot day to start with and we got some hats.
we were first greeted by parrots who stood so still
i thought they weren't real at first.
we saw many animals
including the mouse deer, pygmy hippos (my favourite) and hawthogs
and then we stopped over for some ice tea and dim sum
and watched an animal show on the importance of animal preservation
and fed some elephants (my niece's favourite)
and then only to discover the end of the day that
we could have rode on one of these!

all in all it was a very good day!
hope you're having a good day too.
