visiting a baby hippo

The L.A. Zoo welcomed a baby hippo last Halloween and we paid him a visit! We were glued to the adorable interactions of mama Mara and her little calf. The baby hippo nibbled on mama’s ears, climbed on her back and swam around her while we oohed and aahed. I was glad to hear Emma giggling and enjoying herself right along with us and even though we stayed for at least a half hour it was hard for us to walk away. It was an amazing experience for me and I honestly wish we could go back, and this time with a good camera. ^_^
