desert fun at the living desert

the desert has a lot to offer and we did quite a few things outside the resort.  memory building activities, educational tours, driving around the city including a gastronomical feast and “omotenoshi” japanese hospitality at the palm springs shabu shabu zen.

the living desert, a popular attraction in the area, is a lovely park to see exotic animals and desert plants.  gail, our guide was very pleasant and most patient explaining things especially to the very inquisitive little guy.

here you see TJ got a slice of carrot into Mr G’s foot-long tongue.  this was after many attempts and screaming each try.  what an experience for the little big guy!
