No honey, that's not a tiger...

It was at this moment that Addie said,
"Mom Look! That one has a broken leg! See! He only has one leg!"
("Ah dear, look closer, he's standing on one leg and has the other tucked up.")

In front of the zebras, Emory exclaimed "Look! a tiger!" ("No sweetie, that's a zebra.")

While viewing the tigers, Emory pointed out "Look dad! A tiger! and a dead tiger!" ("No Emory, the other tiger is sleeping, he's not dead.")

Yeah, it's been a while since we have been able to visit a zoo,
so this was a bit of an educational trip too.
Emory related all the animals to the only thing he knows
about giraffes, penguins, lions, zebras, and hippos
....the movie, "Madagascar".

Somehow, despite our attempts in Guam to show them books and pictures,
they still seemed to lack basic kiddo knowledge on the animal kingdom.

I don't know how many times we had to say
"no honey, that's NOT a ___".
We spent the day looking for Alex,Marty, Melman, and Gloria
The favorites of the Madagascar crowd.

Clearly, we have our work cut out for us.
