Mom's friend Consuelo from Florence came to visit us so we took the kids, and her and her two daughters to the zoo in the Villa Borghese. There was a great fountain in the park, which at first everyone was content to dip their feet into.
Andrew however decided to wade in.
This is part of an old Roman temple on the grounds.
And the first exhibit...the giraffes. This was a young one, but still VERY tall.
Augustin in front of the giraffe exhibit.
I'm not sure why they had this many hamsters. Maybe they used them to feed some of the other animals, but there were a bunch of them.
And here's an Eagle...if you can find it.
I think the most popular exhibit was the monkeys. They were hilarious. This baby one was constantly getting into trouble.
Ahh, a monkey spa treatment!
And here's one little money chasing another one. We seriously considered throwing Augustin in there....
A sleeping leopard.
And the last one, a camel who was born the same year I was!
