Shay decided she wanted to be a lioness as well!
And when in a giant bird's nest - be a bird. I wish you could hear her tweeting and see her flapping.
Megan really really really wanted a turn to hold the baby gorilla. It took a lot for me to get her to understand that she couldn't hold that baby.
And all I can say is... I remember a time when Megan was terrified of the petting area part of the zoo... That's long gone - she'd stay there all day if I'd let her. And I must admit on hot and humid days it's a great place to be because they have giant fans. If it gets too hot, they blow a cold mist. I don't mind staying and letting Megan pet and brush the animals - as long as it's near the fans!
