# 316 - A Giraffe on the Farm?

Looking back on the years of raising my daughters, I'm so happy to have had unique moments with them.

Every mom should have an afternoon of feeding a Giraffe with their kids. Isn't this a normal thing to do?

I'm feeding the tall creature on a
Mommy outing with the Girls.
Heather and Stefie weren't afraid.
For weeks afterward, they continually asked
if they could have a pet giraffe.

By the way, it's a good thing to be fast on your feet so you can dodge giraffe slobber as it starts to SLOWLY fall your direction. And hang onto the bucket tightly because the giraffe will be glad to take it off your hands.

Yes, I'm very happy to have done these weird things with my children.

I had to go first, then the girls were eager to
be like mommy and feed the Giraffe. We had
to get a couple of re-fills on the feed in the bucket.

I can't even recall all the amazing things I've done with my girls, but this was one of the most unusual experiences we three enjoyed to the fullest.

At the end of this day, I concluded that giraffes were indeed one of the most beautiful and elegant animals I've ever seen, up close!

Can I have a pet giraffe?
