Saturday Crystal turned 21 years old! To celebrate, she went to the zoo with her parents, followed by dinner at Johnny Carino's. We tried to make the day special for her by hiding her presents around the house. It was sort of fun, but we had to help her a little on the really hard ones. It was like helping a 2 year old find Easter eggs! We thought about getting a golf cart to see the zoo, so it would be more like our African Safari last year, but since no golf carts were available for us (or anyone else, for that matter), we decided to see the animals the old-fashioned way, by foot. It was a cool day, and rained off and on, which made it great walking weather. We couldn't tell if the animals were enjoying the change in weather, but we certainly did! Our favorite thing at the zoo was walking with the flamingos!
We got to get up close and personal with them, as well as hear a zoo employee talk about them. Did you know female birds are all banded on the left leg at the zoo? You learn something new every day!
