While going through our photos, I came across this gem from a couple years ago. It was my birthday road trip that included a stop at the Santa Barbara Zoo. I’ve always loved visiting zoos and I especially got excited over any opportunity to feed an animal. So imagine my delight when we discovered the zoo would let us feed a giraffe! 😀

So here I am, or here’s my arm, handing over a lettuce leaf to our new friend, Michael. Or was it Robert? Anyhow, isn’t he cute? And if you think his tongue is long, that’s not even fully extended! It reminded me of an elephant trunk, the way it would grab ahold of the lettuce before ingesting it. I think he swallowed it whole!

I just wanted to post this with the hope that it makes you smile as much as I smile when I see it.
