Little Petting Zoo Visits San Carlos Elms

We had a wonderful visit yesterday from our favorite petting zoo.
They brought their chickens, rabbits, turtle, goats, and even an alpaca.
The resident, their family, the staff and their family had a great time.
We enjoyed the animals and in the perfect weather too.
Dorothy is enjoying the rabbit.

Nellie is enjoying it too.

Regina likes rabbits.

Anne does too.

It was nice seeing so many family members come out for this visit.

Bobbe enjoyed watching the kids as much as the animals.

Caroline loved asking questions on all the different animals.

Bill was surprised that they all came in one van.

Renate was in heaven.

So was her husband Edmund.

Margo never wants to let go of the rabbit.

Carol loved seeing all the different kinds of animals.

We had a lot of people and animals. Luckily we had shade for the animals on this hot day. 
Thank you Little Explores Petting Zoo for making it a memorable day!
