Each year in August our assisted living crew takes a day and visits the animals at the zoo. It is one of our favorite outings and this year was no different. We were able to see the elephant perform, the lion was lazing right next to the window, the red panda was sunning himself, the sea lions and seals were racing each other, the polar bears waved by the windows, and there was a baby orangutan. We were so blessed to have the many volunteers join us to push wheelchairs and allow our residents to be comfortable while viewing the animals. It was a very successful and fun trip and we can’t wait to do it again next year!
