Lorikeets

I finally have uploaded the pictures from my iPhone. Since Mr. at Home bought me the absolute best Mother's Day gift - an alarm clock that docks my iPhone, charges it, AND plays Pandora radio - I haven't synced with my computer and thus haven't thought about uploading the pics.

Last week we went on a field trip with friends to Columbia where we visited the zoo and the art museum (they had Monet! And Renoir! And Van Gogh!!). We've been to the zoo many times before, but we've never done one very cool thing. The funnest thing the zoo has to offer, as it turns out.

We fed the lorikeets.

For $1 each, we got little cups of nectar, then we went inside their enclosure where we were immediately set upon. Kate was the first to attract their attention and they got a little too close for her comfort.


L was too scared to hold her cup, so this is what I got to do.


My friend ended up holding her daughter's cup, too.


Eventually, the keeper got L to hold a cup.


Isn't this one cute?


But this picture? This is just classic.
