Jungle Island Adventure

It was time for more animals -- especially since Lucas can't seem to get enough of his "Signing Time" DVDs featuring zoo and farm animals (thanks, Aunt Robin!) -- so we ventured to Jungle Island on Biscayne Bay. Jungle Island is home to the former "Parrot Jungle" so there are still many exotic macaws, some who've been around since the 1940's and they're a riot...they line two walkways and love to greet passersby and eat right out of your hand.
The favorite encounter was feeding baby kangaroos...hay que lindos! The South African penguins were too cute for words but we didn't get as up-close-and-personal an opportunity with them. And yes, that's Lucas kissing the kangaroo...

Em loves the Signing Time animal DVD's. I can't wait until it warms up so we can hit the zoo. For now, we spend lots of times at the local pet stores!
