adventure awaits

One of the Christmas presents we got for the whole family was a trip to the Wildlife Safari in Winston. I was able to get tickets on groupon for half price, we just had to visit the park before May 15th. The weather was amazing and was really really fun!! We saw so much more than just what's in these picture's. An ostrich attacked our van, we got it on video and was super funny. We also saw hippos, giraffes, bison, ducks, rhinos, zebras, turtles, exotic deer, lama's, black bears, cheetahs, emu, camels, monkeys, elephants, tigers, turkeys and grizzly bears. The grizzly bears were our favorite!! We have video of the bears play fighting just feet from our van. The hard part of the trip was the distance it took to get there. I highly encourage all my friends to go. We told the kids they could get out of their seats and we took McKinley out of her car seat and she just loved it!! On the second trip around the park we left McKinley in her seat and let the big kids in the front seat, they loved it and so did we! This was a first for us and we hope to return in a few years when McKinley is older.

Reagan did say that she prefers the regular zoo, she didn't like the ostrich attacking the van.

I haven't been there in so long! I was wondering if it was still as neat as I remember -- and it seems like it is. Glad you had a good trip!

Bethany it was so much fun! We hope to go again when McKinley is a little older.
