Animal Mania!

When I was visiting my friend Stevie last week in Pennsylvania, we took her daughters to an animal park called Lake Tobias. It was a few hours away but the girls (ages almost 3 & 7 months) did extremely well in the car—not to mention, it gave Stevie and I lots of time to catch up since we only see each other about twice a year!

(We didn’t pass Punxsutawney on the way to the animal park but I drove through it on my travels and just think it’s a funny name. Didn’t see any groundhogs though :(   …)

We drove by this house which looks almost identical to the one I grew up in!

Anyway, the park was really neat and we saw TONS of cool animals! Some of them are popular zoo animals but others I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before!

Peacocks—I’d never seen a white one before!

And last but not least, the prairie dogs. Oh my gosh, so adorable! They remind me of the chipmunks from Alvin and the Chipmunks. I really just want to squeeze them!

So, that is one of the adventures I’ve been on recently—more to come, but off to babysit for now!
