The family made Saturday an extra special day by deciding to go to Springfield to the drive-throughÂ wildlife safari. As some of you faithful blog readers may remember, we went to the safari for a surprise to celebrate Dad’s 60th birthday a year and a half ago.
We left a little after 6:30 a.m. arriving at the safari about 10:40 where we bought our tickets and animal food. Then off we went for the adventure.
We saw several horse and buggy teams. Notice the ladder?
Mr. Ostrich greeted us first. Dad cautiously opened his window enough to feed him, and if Mr. Ostrich misjudged where the food was, his beak pecked loudly on the window. We didn’t stay with him too long before we headed on.
These guys were really cute.
Mom was even able to feed them out her window.
Look at that zebra’s mouth–talk about a lot of teeth and lips.
Notice in the rearview mirror the total zebra stripe?
Camel’s head is coming in, and Joseph’s protecting his face.
“Can’t we be friends?” The camel seems to be smiling.
Self-portrait :-). Everyone took turns feeding the animals (except for me, I preferred to use my camera and not get slobbery hands :-)), but, as evidenced by the pictures, there are more of some than others.
We went out for a meal at Lambert’s, home of the Throwed Rolls. It was a great adventure!
If you haven’t settled the question as to where you will spend eternity, please don’t put it off. Just yesterday, my heart broke, as I shared with a sweet, elderly woman, who appears to be dying. From all evidence, she has rejected Jesus. I pray she turns to Him in her last hours. If you think of it, please pray for Miss A.
Isaiah 55: 6-7: “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”
