Update on the Circle of Life exhibit. So Alex and Laura finally asked a Zoo employee where the exhibit was located. He didn't know so he referred them to another employee. That employee also didn't know where the exhibit was. A third employee planned to use his walkie-talkie to find out. That's when Laura noticed Becky and Jean were laughing so hard they couldn't talk. Laura realized it was a prank and asked to have Becky and Jean evicted from the Zoo. The flyer was fake! Just another Ward outing!

The adult giraffes....the cute little baby giraffe....Hannah, Daphne and Erin....Daphne, Hannah and Erin.
It was while we were taking the last two pictures above that we realized that Alex was lost. Becky and Laura ended up on separate golf carts with Zoo employees to try and find him. He was eventually found at the police station at one of the exits. As soon as Alex realized he was lost, he turned himself in at a concession stand....exactly what he was supposed to do. We were all very glad to be reunited.
A storm rolled in....Alex actually got a picture of one of the strikes of lightning!
