At the Minnesota Zoo a few days ago the kids had the opportunity to feed the Giraffes. Rye crackers is apparently what giraffes eat. Two rye crackers for $5 which I had to borrow from my friend Karen because there are no ATM's in the African bush.
Soren followed up the day with a horrific long black tongue licking her nightmare in the middle of the night. She was so freaked out by the way the giraffe's long tongue was hand like in it's ability to grab on to stuff that's all she talked about for at least 24 hours.
Ella didn't say a word......just stared at the sweet spotted head in amazement
Soren even though she kept screaming and dropping the cracker every time the giraffe tried to take it from her, thought she should comfort her little brother just in case he was scared too. He wasn't but how thoughtful of her to transfer her fear to him so that she could get a little distance from it.
