BUCKET LIST


I don't know if any of you remember this post, my 25 while 25 list. Well, I did it! I am happy to report that over the weekend I accomplished one of my bucket list dreams: Feed a giraffe. Not only did I feed one giraffe, but I fed it's baby too! Be still my heart, that little one was beyond precious, and I loved having to lean down further to feed it as it stretched its neck as far as it could. Anyone who knows me well knows that I have a little obsession with giraffes. And while the mister and I stood in line to accomplish one of my goals, I cried. Imagine Kristen Bell on Ellen when she talks about sloths.


^^ Despite what this picture may show, it's tongue was actually blue, and the coolest texture ever! The best way I can describe it is warm, soft sand paper. Yes, contradictory words. But that little tongue could give me kisses all day. That sounds weird, whatever.

^^ I felt bad that no one was feeding the little baby who was trying it's hardest to reach it's little (long) neck to join in on the fun. Can I take it home with me?


^^ I guess you could say Eric was just as excited as I was!

We had such a great time at Zoo Miami! I hope we get the chance to go back one more time while we are here. What's the coolest animal you have ever fed? Have you ever fed a giraffe before??

  14. I will admit that I have spent probably way too much time with the giraffes last time I was at a feeding area. People had to kick me out. I love them, their tongues feel like cow tongues, kind of... ha such a cool experience!!

  21. I'm glad that you went! Look like you had a BLAST! I have feed the giraffe's several of times. They are pretty awesome. Were you able to ride a camel? Last time I visited Zoo Miami (about 3 years ago) my brother and his kids were able to. It was soo cool!

  26. How fun! I love completing stuff on my bucket list. I am running a marathon this year for mine :) Hope you two are having a blast in Florida. I can't think of anything crazy that I have fed before. I think the craziest thing in a pig but it's not that exciting.

  31. Oh. my. Gosh! This is fantastic. :) I love that you captured a photo with that long giraffe tongue coming at you!
    I fed some goats this week.. Not the same but still, it's such a sweet thing to feel them gobble up food from your hand, for an animal to need something that you have. Very neat!
