First Summer Outing

As I mentioned in my previous post we've been trying to keep busy with playdates and such.  My MOPS group has an awesome summer playdate list planned and we've been trying to join them as much as we can.  One of the first outings for the group this year was to Lake Tobias Wildlife Park.  I have never been there before and I was surprised at how nice and affordable it is!  For Logan, Cole and I it only cost me $20 (plus $2 for crackers to feed the animals on the safari ride) granted we packed a lunch but still I didn't think it was bad.  Here are some pictures of our day!

Waiting on the cut off bus for our safari ride.

                                                          I think this is an emu but not sure...

Logan and Cole feeding crackers to the elk.  It was so friggin cool.  They came right up to the bus as soon as they saw us and these things were huge!  Cole thought it was the coolest thing ever and was petting him. 

This is when I knew it was time to go home.  We walked past a barn with a big John Deere tractor in it (Coles fave) and he would stop and stare.  He kept saying 'ride, tractor, me'  I started to walk away from him because I could not get him away from it.  Crazy kid!


  1. Hey Kim! I hope the tutorial works for you! :) I used to love going to MOPS! It was so fun to get together with other moms and kids. I especially liked the small groups and crafts! Have a great rest of your week!

  2. What's MOPs?

    Never heard of it.

    Feeding the animals sounds like a lot of fun!

  3. the wildlife park looks like it was fun--aside from the john deere tractor sighting!!
