I’m glad you came along with me today. I hope the rest of your day is going to be as much fun as mine is. While I was traveling with you, the keepers Rebekha and Sally hid treats for me to find all over my exhibit. I love to explore and find them all. There’s one over there. It looks like a carrot. Oh, and there’s another one! Got to go. See you back here Tuesday with all the art projects form our campers. Bye for now!
