When we were in Gatlinburg for the day, John paid for me to have a "penguin experience"! I got to go back and touch a penguin! And anyone who knows me, knows how much I just love to touch wild animals! I wanted so badly to pick little Jimmy up and squeeze him, but I followed the rules and let him run around. I wasn't quite sure what I thought a penguin would feel like, but I was surprised to find how downy soft he was. I suppose I thought he might feel more "feathery". I wanted to take him home with me, but at least I got these great pics!
