We went with some of our good friends, the Crofts, to Natural Bridge, Virginia, where they have this great Safari Park. It was a total BLAST! It was so cool to see so many different kinds of animals and to see them up close and personal. Sometimes a little too up close!! haha! You can see in some of Kevin's pictures he didn't mind that though!haha! All of these pictures are of us at the Park. We all had buckets of "feed" to feed the animals with. Now, my kids are deathly afraid of dogs, but a buffalo .... heck, they have no worries. Nathan was feeding this one buffalo with his hands and just dropping food into its mouth, with his hand almost touching the tongue of the nasty ginormous animal! Oh well, we carried a lot of hand sanitizer thats for sure, and it came in pretty handy...no pun intended.haha! At this park you could walk around and see different animals and then you could either drive your car around the major safari part or you could ride on this wagon. We chose to ride the wagon, which was a ton of fun, but I included a picture in here that we took of a car a couple cars in front of us (while on the wagon) and a camel had stuck its head and neck in this minivan and was eating out of the van. It was hilarious! I'm sure that van needed a major slobbery clean up job when that feeding was over. haha. While we were walking around there was this kangaroo that was just resting right on the pathway we were walking on. It was soooo COOL! The kids hung out with it for a little while and it was so friendly! It was such a fun family day trip! Maybe our next family Safari will be in AFRICA wouldn't that be cool? Anyway, I love all these pictures! I count my blessings every day to have such a sweet, fun, and loving family!
