Giraffe Feeding

I think this may have been our favorite part of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo experience!  We purchase some {very expensive} lettuce bundles and stood on the elevated platform to be eye-to-eye with the giraffes in order to feed them!  The kids loved it!  Even Nehemiah got in on the feeding action this time.  It’s amazing how long the giraffe’s tongues are!

We all got involved in feeding – even Grandma, Uncle Wes, Daddy & Mommy!

Nehemiah’s turn!  Everyone else wanted the extra lettuce I was holding!
