Field Trippin' It

I got to go on Caleb's recent field trip to a park in a neighboring county.  It had a nice nature trail, a small zoo, and a nature center.  The animals there were all rescued after being hurt in the wild and nursed back to health.  He got to hear a presentation about different types of animals and see some live ones up close--but wasn't interested in touching any of them!!

I gotta say...going on a field trip as a mom is way more fun than when you're the teacher!  :)

Here are some pictures from the trip.

A cute little owl who was rescued after some kind of trauma cause his head to not be upright.

This big fella had one eye.

The peacock was showing off for us!  All I could think of was, "Show them the shimmer!"  (If you have a Sophia the First lover like I do, you'll get that.) :)

He was a big mamma jamma!!

The park ranger with a snake whose head was a little too close to my ear at one point.  I don't care if he's poisonous or not.  Snakes freak me out.

I love this little guy!

The snake!! I love, love, love the snake!! Being an oddball, I am not terrified of that reptile!! In fact, I touched its scaly skin, plus helped carry one as a girl!! {During twain different occasions!!} ;)
