Matthew taught Alex all about the timing of the tidal pool waves. They would stand as close to the water as they dared, and then dash across the floor as soon as they heard the wave 'come in'. Great exercise!Alex just wanted to be everywhere and do everything that Megan did. Here she is sidling up to her mentor during the dolphin training session we saw. Megan was such a good sport, and took great care of her little sidekick!
On a side note, Alex has just recently started to really push boundaries with me. Today her 'trick of the day' was to grab a railing or touch the dirty zoo floor, look at me and then lick her open palm. Even though I'm not really a germophobe, this was horrifying to me. Ewwww....... not sure what to do about this one!
