As soon as we arrived in Livingstone, got a quick snack, and took lots of little ones to the bathroom, it was time for our safari. It was neat for so many reasons, but especially because neither the aunties nor the babies had seen wild animals in person before. My tears started about a minute in when we spotted the first baboon up in a tree. They were SO excited, pointing and shouting and making monkey noises, and all those hours of language class and teaching about animals and their noises were worth it. It was just so cool.

|Checking out the elephants (and checking out the pictures she was taking on her phone)|

After the falls, we all changed clothes and got the babies clean and ready for a sleepy trip home. Here are all of our sweet field trip goers!

|James (I seriously considered not taking him because he's such a loose cannon, and I could just picture the worst, but he did great!)|
