This past weekend, while I was running my heart out at the Army 10 Miler, the boys (and my mom and Beer Geek) were out at the Reston Zoo. They’d been invited by PBS to participate in the taping of the promo materials for the new “Wild Kratts” show that will begin airing in January.
The Kratt brothers allowed the kids to touch a pet and interact with a number of different animals, including a baby alligator and a llama.
Shoo lost interest before he got a chance to be in a shoot, but Jones may end up on tv in one of the ads. (Jones was thrilled to be included, the llama was not so thrilled.)
My dad and I drove out there after the race (which had actually delayed the shooting because the Kratt brothers got stuck in race related traffic LOL), so we got to see the tail end. Once the boys were done, we had some time to wander the zoo before we headed home.
A huge thank you to PBS for letting the boys be involved!
