Spring is in the air, and the Memphis Zoo is one of the first places many Memphians flock to enjoy the great outdoors.

In this photo, 3-year-old Olamide Tom surveys the zoo’s giraffes on Tuesday, March 17. She was among those drawn to the zoo for the day, which combined spring break for Shelby County Schools with one of the first real breaks in the city’s winter weather.
