  1. What a wonderful use of social media! Thank you, Joe!
    But just a little curious/concerned about the Iguanas??

    • Hi Lorraine,
      The Iguanas were totally safe. This a park filled with them they even let people pet them! I was afraid but I took a picture with them as well. If the 3 year old next to us could pet them we could at least take pictures with them 😁
