San Carlos Elms has Fun in the Sun with The Petting Zoo

The Little Explorers Petting Zoo is the best medicine.
Every visit we always see our Residents with smiles on their face and hear laughter in the air.
This time they brought rabbits, some as young as one month old, pigs, ducks, goats, sheep, chickens, a turtle and alpaca. We had a great time!
Bernella didn't want to let her little friend go.

Edmund and Renate never miss the animals.

George loves seeing the animals. It reminds him of his farming days.

Hattie loved her new friend.

Vija was surprised by all our visitors.

Caroline and Helen couldn't get enough of all the different animals.

Karen wanted to hold all the rabbits.

The alpaca pulled her hair back so the Residents could see her beautiful eyes.

It was such a fun afternoon!
