Breakfast with Lions

Last Saturday Jim and I took the kids to the zoo to have breakfast with the lions. The breakfast was so-so, mostly the kind of food you find at a gas station (breakfast burritos, sausage, bagels, muffins). There was a nice selection of fresh fruit and yogurt though, so that was good. Mostly, it was exciting to to see the lions from the large windows, and watch them interact first thing in the morning. They were pretty lively after being kept inside overnight!
Hunter's the little dude in the middle, checking out the big cats!

The lady lion was up on the rock for quite a while, and along came Papa lion to nose in on her resting place. She didn't appreciate his presence, and after letting him know how annoyed she was--as you can see in the picture above--she took off to find another place to chill.
The zoo keepers brought in a joey for all of us to pet. He was our special guest. The kids liked it. Confession: so did I! So cute!
Lastly, Tralee wanted to wear these sunglasses most of the time we were at the zoo, even though it was an overcast day. She's pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself!

We had a fun morning together. Thanks lions!
