Pictures from our day:
We had to trek a ways, but we finally found the elephants after cutting through the Conifer Forest. There was a baby elephant following her mother around, which was really cute to watch.
This is the balloon Kate adores. It actually has bigger appeal than some of the animals for Kate. It can be seen from all of the lower park, so it can be a bit distracting. We ate our packed lunches on a bench right by it so Kate could enjoy it more. She loves to wave and say "hi" to it.
I could seriously watch the gorillas all the livelong day. They were a bit more active on this visit. And we could definitely identify the Alpha.
Katie June is looking upward for more butterflies. Butterflies with wings of gossamer white. Butterflies of the most vibrant iridescent blue. Birds of teal and lime green... It was magical...
There is actually a butterfly on that plant. Can you see it? Kate seemed to delight in spotting them...particularly the one that landed on one man's behind. She actually was so amused that she laughed.
