A Mother's Day Safari

After church today we spent a rainy Mother's Day at the zoo. The rain was a bit of a bummer for us, but it turns out that the rain was just perfect for the afternoon's special surprise - Rhino Encounters!

It turns out that Hogle Zoo has these super cool programs where you can meet a keeper and help feed or train animals. I think Steve chose the very best one - rhino feeding.

The rhinos were especially frisky given that their world was a giant mud puddle (their favorite!), which made for great entertainment for all.

Sasha gives George his lettuce palate cleanser
The keeper said I could feed George by hand, so we tried out a banana
It was quite the experience!
We had a superfun time feeding the rhinos...
...and giving them scratches.
Happy Mother's Day to all!
