We recently went on an excursion to the Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield. Gracia & Joah had the privilege of feeding this 23 yr. old giraffe named "Stretchy". He was a good 'ole sport. Giraffe's normal life expectancy is 20 yrs. Joah's feeding him a cracker and our friend Wendy is holding him so I can snap this pic. Really cool!
I read about doing this in a magazine once. So, the whole family pitched in and did some much needed cleaning around the house. Then, after naps, we got all spruced up (or fancied...whichever you prefer) and headed down to Springfield for night out. Daddy took us all to Lambert's. It was fun and we left with FULL tummies. What a great time!
