Happy birthday, ladies!

It's Suki and Hanako's birthday!
And National Elephant Day too.
Our elephants are having a birthday (Sept. 24), just in time for National Elephant Day (Sept. 22)! Hanako turns 56 (our oldest animal!) and Suki turns 55, and we're treating them to luscious vegan banana-peanut butter cake - plus a carved watermelon to stomp!
