I haven’t been to the Wild Animal Park in a long time and I think the last time the children have been was about a year and a half ago. So it was time we went. With another open house in our home, we had to clear out for the day (6 hours!) and figured that today would be the day we headed to see the animals to the north of us.
We watched the gorillas and measured ourselves up to their size. Ben talked about the balloon ride that he wants to go on (very expensive). We got misted by the misters as we walked up the trail. We spotted giraffes from afar. We watched the elephants for a bit and then hit up the petting area. Noah was thrilled to find out that there was food for sale and that it was for the animals. This petting area had deer in it, so much bigger than the goats at the zoo. Noah loved feeding the animals. He tried to hug the deer but they wouldn’t have any part of it. At one point the deer didn’t want to eat the food out of his hands. Maybe there was something wrong with the food pellet smell.
It was a great day, the weather was perfect and we were all tired on our way home.
