We rarely get out as a family to do fun kid-things, but a few weeks ago we took the girls to a little "wildlife encounter" at the local community center. I expected the presenter to have things like birds and turtles to show, and I settled Emily into the 2nd row of kids sitting on the floor. Imagine my surprise when the man reached into a box and pulled out an alligator! It was actually a pretty good little display, he had an artic fox, a hedgehog, a python, some exotic bird, a coati mundi, and a kangaroo! The animals came from the W.I.L.D Center. Once they open their new public zoo, we'll have to go visit.
