No, not my children, but these new additions to the Austin Zoo!
Memphis and Anastasia are 7 week old Barbary Lions that only come out for 1 hour on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons to greet their adoring public.
Emmylou's friends Luke and Scarlett (our neighbors) inspired an impromptu visit this past Monday. It was cold and a little rainy but the cuteness was well worth the hassle.
Apparently there are no Barbary Lions left in the wild and only around 100 left in captivity. :(
And here are my wild animals...
Emmylou, attempting to poke/torment a peacock with a pencil she found in the bottom of the stroller:
And Miller, so unhappy to be strapped into the stroller when he could be running around tormenting peacocks:
And here are the adorable twins:
If you're in Austin, go see the lions!
