A proposal and visit to the zoo

Last weekend, McKay's work had its yearly work party where they closed down Hogle Zoo and invited all employees and their families.  This was my first visit to Hogle Zoo in about 15 years and it was our little outing with Amelia.  

We first attended the bird show and that was really fun.  Not only did we see lots of exotic birds, but McKay's close friend and our basement roommate, Kevin, proposed to his girlfriend Shelley.  A year ago from this time, Kevin and Shelley were set up on a blind date by McKay and I.  Their first date was last year's work party which was held at This Is The Place State Park. Kevin decided to use the bird show as a way to pop the question.  He had a bird bring her a note asking her to marry him.  We were assigned by Kevin to capture this joyous moment. 

From the pictures, you can tell she said yes. Congratulations Shelley and Kevin!

This giraffe was licking the wall; his tongue was so long we had to take a picture of it.

I love this little girl so much. The older she gets, the more she looks like her daddy.  We like to coordinate with each other.

What a clever way to purpose! I loved the pictures and I can't get enough of Miss Amelia.
