Wildlife Ranch...

Wednesday and Thursday of Spring Break were so much fun!!  My cousin, Whitney, and her husband, Ryan, were in town for a wedding.  Wednesday...they made it in time for dinner.  Thursday, Mackenzie came over to watch the kiddos so Whitney and I could shop and eat kid free!  It was so much fun!  So much fun that I didn't take one picture!!!  But...Friday I took a TON!!  Tab woke up on Friday and decided he could get some work ton in the morning and then take the rest of the day off.  We decided to take the kiddos to the Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch in Pilot Point.  G and M tagged along for some fun.  It turned out to be the best day!
 Getting a peak at the horses and zebras.
 Bowen looks super excited about it!
 We walked around and looked at the zebras, horses, and bears.  Then we got on this tram.  It had buckets of food on the sides.  So...the animals walked right up to eat the food.  We could pet them and take pictures.  They were so close. It actually worked out so well because Bowen needed to eat while we rode this.  I fed him and he fell asleep on our tram ride.  
 This girl decided she was "roughin" it in the country.  She took her bow off and was ALL about the animals!
 Nixon liked them too, but he was very happy about being safe on the tram.
 This girl wasn't scared of anything!  She wanted to pet everything that walked by.  
 Nixon-Man liked the camels.
 We found some of our friends!  The Azels were enjoying their spring break at the Wildlife Ranch too.
 I seriously took this as a teachable moment about how important it is to brush our teeth!  ha!

 Then it was petting zoo time. 
 The goat in the background had just taken care of his business...too funny that Ebby Lee was holding her nose!
 She cracked me up.  I guess we haven't been to a petting zoo in a while, but homegirl USED to be so scared.  Not anymore!
 Nixon surprised me too!

 She fed this goat a little.  Then tried to walk away to feed something else...
 But...the goat followed her.  I heard her say, "You're just so hungry aren't ya?"  ha!
 Fun little barrel ride
 Bowen was looking at the horses and loving it!

Just for fun...this is the petting zoo experience I think of when I think of Ebby Lee.  Her ENTIRE body started shaking when I tried to get her to feed a horse.  We've come SO far!!
 "You want me to FEED the animals?"
She stayed a safe distance away from the fence.  Things have changed!!
