Field Trip

This past Wednesday some of the local homeschooler's got together and went on a field trip to an exotic ranch. It was really cool. They had lots of animals, I think most of them were African. It was especially cool when we found out they don't always let people come in to see their critters. I thought it was like a drive thru safari place, but it isn't. Just an older couple with exotic animals, that they like to show off. I am really glad we got to experience some of their hospitality.

That last picture is hysterical! I might have done that until last week, when I discovered my 2 year old has WORMS!!!! OOOOOhhh I'm totally grossed out by any hand/mouth contact with animal mouths/water/food/feces.... Of course, he got the worms from playing in dirt, so possibly I'll get over my animal disgust later ;)
