Birthday Surprise #2

It was a delightful morning for a ride, with a nice breeze blowing throughout the spacious tram. We had purchased from the safari a 50# bag of feed, so we had plenty of treats for the animals. Abby stuck pretty close to Aunt Anna and enjoyed feeding the animals or watching Aunt Anna feed them. Everyone else moved around quite a bit, and it was just an overall incredible time of enjoying God’s amazing creatures.

Sweet Bethany
What a long tongue!
The buffalo's feet didn't actually enter the tram--just the rest of him.
Definitely as close to a buffalo as I've ever been.
The camel was one of our favorites because of how gently he would take the food.
Quite the camel.
A mama and baby zebra. Aren't they sweet? One of my favorite pictures.
It was a wonderful family time!
A group shot

By the time we were done, Bethany still hadn’t exhausted her “ehh ehhs”, and our bag of feed wasn’t quite gone, but some of the family braved the pouring rain to walk around the “walk through” area, while a few of us opted to stay inside the gift shop. It had been a delightful event.

I’ll wrap it up with a final blog post on our final surprise for Dad.

    I love the picture of you and the Buffalo…..

    Sarah, also love the picture of the zebras as well. The wonder of God is so evident when seeing the Mama and her baby.
