Yesterday we decided to drive out to a wildlife park a little over an hour from us because the weather was finally supposed to be somewhat nice and we needed a family day!
The boys had a wonderful time at Fossil Rim, feeding the animals right from the car, although we did have a few near misses with some ostriches and zebras. Boy, do they like to get up close and personal! We also stopped for a picnic lunch and of course a trip to the gift shop.
Here are some highlights from our drive through the park and as The B Man likes to put it, "our big adventure!"
The boys getting a look see at some of the first animals (can you see them both in the mirror?)
Not your ordinary traffic jam
The B Man helping Daddy drive (this period of his life shall be known as the "tiger mask era")
Little G was right there feeding the animals and smiling the whole way!
Somebody else had quite a bit of fun feeding the animals too...
This guy was NOT shy!
And neither was this guy (or gal)
These guys were a little hungry.
And then so were these guys (it was a little chilly, hence The B Man in Daddy's shirt)
Little G wanted every "Meow Meow" (what he calls cats of any sort) in the gift shop but as you'll see in the next pic, he only ended up with one.
The family pic. And no, I am not "showing" yet, just carting around some very important Jelly Belly's in my pocket...
On our way out we saw this character who is in desperate need of an eyebrow wax...
...and this guy who's in desperate need of a bath!
All in all we had a wonderful time and it was so nice to get out and do something together as a family. On the way home, we asked The B Man what his favorite part of the trip was and he said getting his new squirrel, "Buffy" from the gift shop and when the ostrich tried to eat our car. Yep, definitely good times.
But of course Tim and I agreed that our favortie part was just watching the boys' reactions to the animals and how much fun they had. And really, isn't that always the best part?
Okay, well, all good things must come to "AN END" so I leave you with this...
Oh I do crack myself up!
P.S. Tomorrow is my 500th post and I have someone coming by to help me with that task so you must come see! : )
