family: ... we are riding...

... on a Camelbak! A real, live Camel.

One of the more memorable moments of our post-Florida Birmingham Zoo visit:

K & L, riding Daisy
(a curiously named male camel)

This was an exciting experience for both girls and parents.

We made quite a deal out of the fact that neither M nor I had ever ridden a real camel.

when excited or overwhelmed, tends to get a little reticent, so she didn't fully express her feelings about it right then.

But later that evening I had one of my favorite moments of the entire trip when, as I held K perched on the toilet, she looked up at me with a goofy grin on her face and said, "I rode a camel." It was clear that she'd felt the significance of the event.
