One of the special things we did while in Fresno this summer was to visit their fantastic zoo! Wells Fargo sponsors a free day each month when all kids under a certain age can go into the zoo free. In addition, they have dozens and dozens of Wells Fargo employees all over the zoo handing out free food, leading activities, manning fun animal info booths, leading tours...or even just standing around on a blisteringly hot day dressed in a dog costume. It was a great zoo made even more wonderful thanks to all the helpful people around that day! We went with some of our new Linkcare friends, the Arteagas and had a great time with them.

|O Boy the turtle|
|The assistant here was holding this stingray up for the kids to pet because "he's an old, friendly stingray." Good to know!|
|Trying to feed the stingrays. O Boy's hand was just too short so we eventually asked for some help from the Wells Fargo volunteers all around.|
|Another very special spot allowed you to feed a giraffe. This was lots of fun! Here is Ruth and her two kids getting their turn.|
|He's got quite the tongue!|
|After being in zoos literally around the world, Fresno-Chaffee gets my vote for the best hands-on, kid-friendly zoo I've been too!|
