So, this morning, around 10:00, we got in the car to go get some lunch. As we were driving, we thought, hey - - we are already in Oklahoma, may as well go just a little further and hit up the.....
It's a drive through animal safari. So, we got our feed, loaded up in the front seat,
and off we went....
We had just gotten inside the gates when the animals noticed us.
Well, hello there! Aren't you cute?
And you! You look like a giant poodle!
You...you, sir, are giving me the creep out.
I will now roll up my window. Thank you.
No feed for you. We are moving on.
Ah - you look so soft, & those bottom teeth - what's not to love!?
Well, hi there!
Yes, we have some food for you. Just pose for a quick picture first, okay?
Oh, okay, we're taking too long? The food, right...
Okay! Okay! Please exit the vehicle Mr. Camel.
**confession - as I was taking this picture, I was also huddled in the far corner of the front seat of the Suburban, shouting "Drive! Ryan!Drive!", as I squeezed the kids so hard that Larson had to say to me "Mom, why are you choking me?" Because Larson, if you hadn't noticed, there is a CAMEL IN OUR CAR! Ryan told me I was over-reacting, and would probably scar our children for the rest of their lives**
Moving right along....
I wasn't the only one who got a little freaked out by Mr. Camel. This is where Secily moved to after his departure from the front seat (this, of course had everything to do with Mr. Camel, and nothing to do with her panic-and-put-your-kids-in-a-choke-hold mother)
She was going to watch through the windows for awhile.
Oh, hello little Donkey. You are cute, and not so intrusive. You look just like the donkey in Shrek. I'll roll down my window & give you some food....
Oh boy, it's the ostrich. How creepy are those necks!? My window was (once again) rolled up.
Alright, on to some more lovable animals...the zebras! Hello you two!
Look who got her courage back up and came to see the zebra!
We also saw buffalo, deer, antelope, white tiger (in a cage!), rhino's (also in a cage), warthogs, giraffes. Such a fun time!
Side note: Jane was in attendance today. She actually rode in the front seat for a little while. AFTER the camels.
