Mickey had to come, too. These days, Maile is dividing her time between Mr. Mouse, and her sleeping lovey, Kisses the koala.
On Wednesday, Mr. M and I took Maile to the Denver Zoo with some new friends. It was such a beautiful day, and we had an awesome time. And despite our efforts to the contrary, Maile might have put her face up against every piece of viewing glass in the zoo. Oops!
I had big dreams concerning our visit, since this was Mr. M's first zoo day with Maile. But somehow, one animal at a time, it turned out to be even better than I anticipated, even with a lot of the animals in their winter habitats. And once again, Maile impressed, outlasting her little buddies by a full hour-and-a-half, making it through the entire zoo once again! Thanks for inviting us, Helen! We love your company, as well as little Kylee's.
The penguins are now in their enclosed winter quarters, which meant Maile couldn't carry on her regular conversation with one particular dapper dude.
Find the face!
Those would be snout smudges on that window.
This just doesn't look comfortable! But Monsieur Chameau was definitely snoring.
Someone -- ahem, Maile -- lost a shoe. ;)
Kind of upset about leaving the harbor seals.
Love these two. So, so much.
