Then we headed over to the zoo. It's not the kind of zoo that has elephants, and one boy in my group whined the whole time, "But where are the elephants? Where are the lions?"
Instead we got to see a kookaburra.
I'm not sure if it's sitting in an old gum tree, but it was fun to see anyway.
Colorful peacocks wandered around freely, but never fluffed up their feathers for us.
The orangutans were extremely active. Maybe they had to keep moving to keep warm.
You know, because 63* is so cold to those of us living in the Swamp.
But the most educational thing I saw during the field trip was this:
It's blurry, but this boy spent the entire field trip taking pictures of Ashley.
And I'm not exaggerating. He took about 799.9 million pictures of her.
And this boy put his arm around her and tried to hold her hand the entire time. You can see the paparazzi boy in the red hoodie checking out the other boy putting his arm around her.
As I said, it was educational for me.
Luckily she's not flirting back much in return.
Thank goodness for the tomboyish part of this princess's personality!
