The kids and I had a great time here.

We always go to this place a lot in the summer. It's only about a 45 minute drive and worth it!

Caiden fed a lot of animals but my Bailee Grace..well lets just say she was there to watch! She does not care much to come in contact with the animals, and the smell gets the best of her! She has been this way for as long as I can remember. If we go to the zoo we always have to skip the monkey house because she gets sick at her stomach. But she did have a good time!
We did the car tour, petting zoo, and walked around feeding animals. Caiden had a great time feeding all kinds of animals.

The car tour always starts out with the ostrich. I had no problem feeding it, but he eats kind of funny. Instead of just eating out of the cup, he pecks at it kind of like a chicken and the jerking movements will startle you!

We had a hard time getting around the HUGE Bulls. They just kept roaming around the car and I was scared those big horns were going to damage my car.

Caiden had his turn of feeding the ostrich, he did quite well and was not scared.

I fed some beautiful zebras.

Caiden did also.

I love nature and all she has to offer. What a beautiful sight to see so much of it here!

After the car tour, we found a nice picnic area surrounded by a pond. I prepared our lunch last night. I made my mom's famous chicken salad. Her recipe is AWESOME!! I used boiled chicken, eggs, walnuts, apples,pecans, and some red pepper!! It was YUMMY!!

I packed paper plates, plastic forks and spoons, drinks in a cooler bag. I also made some cookies for dessert.

My Bailee just enjoying the view and relaxing.

Right in the middle of eating our picnic lunch, a cute little rabbit was playing in the grass. We suddenly stopped eating and walked over to where the rabbit was.

Caiden has always had a love for animals and he just wanted so much to pick him up.
We got some of the animal food and put some on the ground.

Even Bailee decided at this point to feed her 1st animal!!!

We were so amazed that such a wild creature was letting us pet him!!

Caiden finally got to pick him up and hold him

Bailee also picked him up.

What a awesome thing, we so enjoyed this moment then went back to finish our lunch.

After lunch, we went to the petting zoo.

Look at that HUGE turtle!!!

Caiden just put food on the ground for the peacock!!

We had such a wonderful time here. Glad we got to go before the BIG rain hit!!
