Safari


kangaroo Posted by Picasa

Last weekend was a blast! My Mom came to visit us in our new place, along with our good friends Paul and Ashley and their baby boy Tyler. We got to hang out Saturday evening with a huge group of friends, but the FUN part came on Sunday. Paul and Ash came to our apartment and we caught a late breakfast at this little hometown cafe that served tons of yummy food for CHEAP. We will definitely be going back there.

Anyways, we then drove to a town about 15 minutes away that is seriously, middle of NOWHERE, but has this HUGE drive-thru Safari/petting zoo. It was amazing. You drive through a 5 mile path that takes you past lions, tigers, zebras, hippos, rhinos, buffalo, monkeys, antelope, ostriches, bears, etc etc etc. The ostriches come right up to your window and just stare at you, as if inspecting your vehicle or something. They freaked Annabelle out, but otherwise, she LOVED this place. We had llamas, Texas Longhorns, Antelope and emus at our window. We saw baby ostriches and reindeer. So many cool things.

After the drive thru, you stop at the zoo to pet the animals. We got to take the kids into the fenced areas to pet the kangaroos, pygmy goats, 2 baby tigers, snakes (Juju tried to put it in his mouth) rabbits, zebras...it was just too cool for words. Annabelle was in heaven.

Here are a few pictures from our trip.

Oh yeah, on the drive home, we saw 3 sky divers land in an open field about 1 minute from our apartment. Turns out that there is a sky diving school and everything right here by our place. Skydiving. Definitely on my list of things to do before I die (but not die while doing). ;)
