Bye Bye Rosie & Juno

Friday as we were leaving the parking lot of Wilson's school, Miller asked if we could go to the zoo. I said, sure- great idea- let's go to the zoo. We called our best buddies to see if they would like to join us on our last minute excursion to go to the zoo and to say goodbye to our elephants before they move to Nashville. Miller and Caroline had a great time getting to be queens of the zoo. Not only were there almost no other people there- there were no big brothers to dictate what did and saw. When we made it to the elephant exhibit, the zoo keeper, Percy, happened to be walking by. He yelled, "Hey Rosie, hey Juno, comer over here! These people have come to tell you goodbye- get over here!" With that one of them trumpeted, and they both turned and came right over to the fence for us. Percy then said to wait just a second while he got them a treat and he'd take our picture with them. He went and cut some bamboo and laid it across the fence (it's on the left side of the photo) and Rosie & Juno posed with us for a couple of shots! Then the elephants got their treats for indulging us. It was a great way to say goodbye- we're so sad that they have to leave. Best wishes for Nashville!
