Ahhh, the bliss of little girls. One would think that would include baby dolls and fairy wings (and some days it does) but, for the most part our little ladybugs are full-fledged animal activists! These little lovelies would trade the finest tea party for a romp in the zoo or a swim in the shark tank (okay, not really IN the shark tank) but you get the picture. So, every summer, they look forward to their trips to the wild beyond. We went to the aquarium as our little family of four, skipping the ferry ride due to nasty thunderstorms. It turned out to be a wonderful day, despite the downpours.
My girlfriend, Trini had never been to a natural habitat located not so far from home. Trini and her daughter, Olivia were game for our outing to the game preserve. Sometimes, we go two or three times a year - it is a zoo with a beautiful park and magnificent lunch area. The zoo was making lots of changes, so the animals were sparse this time, but the good times were plenty.
