This lion had the largest, fluffiest mane I had ever seen!
All James could talk about leading up to this trip was the tiger. In fact, he woke up at 3:30 that morning thinking it was time to see the tiger. :/ for me...
He especially loved the animals he could pet. He loved this pony and the reindeer and goats. He even tried chasing the deer. He's fast, but not that fast. :)
Lauren went along with us. It was very cold, but she enjoyed herself. You wouldn't know it by this picture...Look at that red, little nose!
James' school took a field trip to a Wildlife center on Friday and he was in Paradise! It was a very cold morning, but he of course didn't mind. You all know how much James loves animals! He was so looking forward to this trip. He loved feeding the goats and even kissed one of them-ON THE MOUTH!!! They say their mouths are clean, but I was a little grossed out!!! There were several exotic animals which he loved, but he did have a difficult time understanding he COULDN'T climb in the cages with the tiger, lion, buffalo, and black bears. And on many of the fences there was a small opening which he tried to squeeze through. Oh, that was a long 2 hours!! They had many of his favorites too like a sheepdog, bobcat, baby cub, and many more. He really enjoyed himself and I enjoyed watching him have a "passion" for things at this young age. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun!
