Children who are recuperating in the hospital, obviously can't get to the zoo. Yesterday the zoo came to them. At Saint Christopher's Hospital for Children various creatures from the philadelphia zoo were on hand for the opening of the hospital's safari-themed lobby.

There's even a faux fishpond. The little ones couldn't get enough of the cool new lobby. The lobby also welcomes new technology. There are new computers with the net, plus a children's learning center.

The zoo animals weren't the only stars on hand for the grand opening of the safari lobby. Olympic gold medal women's soccer player Carli Lloyd helped celebrate this big occasion.
