It's hard to believe that the month of February will be done and gone in another few days. Though the days sometimes feel very long, the weeks surely fly by.
February always begins with Brian's birthday. He turned 46 this year, and since he requested an ice cream cake, I didn't dare put that many candles on it for fear it would become liquid. :) Jacob, of course, had to get in on all the birthday action, from "helping" Daddy open presents to blowing out the candles.
Wouldn't it be fun to really be this close to the elephants?!
Brian feeding the giraffes--none of us have ever experienced feeding giraffes at any other zoo. Pretty cool. And here's a random tidbit of pregnancy information about giraffes (since I'm expecting and take note of such information)...Giraffes are pregnant for 14 months--poor mama!--and when baby is born he is 6 feet tall! I suppose it's all relative, since giraffes are extremely tall animals, but that's so big!
Mama tiger and her cute little cub :)
Jacob got to ride a horse all by himself and loved it! (It was really a pony, but Jake insists that it's a horsey. I guess if it looks like a horse and acts like a horse...)
