As the girls were riding their last ride I rolled the boys over to the "zoo" to check it out. It was huge and there was a nice variety of animals and there were baby goats. I apparently cannot resist the baby goat. (Truth be told I just can't resist babies in general) I told the girls we could come back another day. I am pretty sure that promise was made for my benefit. I am an animal lover..what can I say?
Monday was a HOT day but we got to the zoo right when it opened and we were the first customers. The girls and I had free reign of the animals. I emptied out all my quarters and the girls went to find the animals to feed.
|Is there a "Petting Zoo Catalog" out there? Because I think I have their next model|
The bunnies were very popular with Boogie. She spent most of her time in the bunny cage picking up each and every bunny and giving it some love. She told me later she liked it over there because the farm people were teaching her all about bunnies. I think someone needs a pet bunny.
Baby and I wandered around. She wanted to meet each and every animal.
As Baby was lovingly petting the pig she was chanting "I LOVE to eat pig!" I was dying. But good for her if she can see that ugly thing with its nose in the mud and think "yummy!". I have to admit I took the bacon off of my burger at lunch!

The boys stayed outside the gates because they wanted $5 for them too and honestly I figured that they were going nowhere near the animals so I decided to just have them hang out. I think Buddy was quite happy that there was a fence between him and the animals.
The girls stayed for 2 hours and would have stayed even longer but it was just getting way too hot and too close to naptime. We did have to make one more stop.
I was going to let Bunny try too (he would have probably liked it more than Buddy) but there was a big sign that sign "No recent surgeries". I realize they probably mean heart surgeries but because of where his incision is I decided to wait a few more weeks. I have had enough of doctors and hospitals for awhile!
It's amazing how much fun you can pack into 3 hours. The girls have asked if we can go back every weekend. I definitely think we need to go visit the baby goats a few more times!
