The countdown to the first day of school has begun.  The kids aren’t necessarily excited about it, but I have to admit that I’m looking forward to getting back to something that resembles a routine.

I took the kids to Tanganyika Wildlife Park this week.  We’ve been wanting to go and I figured it was time when they started offering a BOGO special on Wednesday’s!  It’s a small park and they don’t have a ton of animals or exhibits, but you can interact with several of the animals which makes it a really cool experience.  We were able to feed the giraffes,

Feeding the lemurs was by far the winner!  The kids exchanged their token for a cranberry, held a closed hand up to the lemur and he would open your hand and take the fruit.  The first time we visited the exhibit, they were all napping.  The kids all decided to go back before we left and found that the lemurs were all awake, which meant that they would crawl across your lap for the treat!

The lemurs were so soft! I’d like to bring this little guy home. I think the keeper said his name was Vegas.

I think we’ll definitely go back again when it’s cooler.
