"Manimals!" (picture overload ahead)

That's what Egan calls the variety of animals we saw last week at Fossil Rim. He had SO much fun, and it was a great activity for a little boy who couldn't really walk. (He's since gotten it down and does sort of a Frankenstein walk.) (Thanks mom for the fun and great idea!)
Fossil Rim is a place where exotic animals roam freely near where my parents live. You stay in your car and drive through to see the animals and feed them too!
Egan loved that we didn't make him stay in his car seat.

I should probably go get the brochure that told what all the animals are, but it is in the car, and it is cold.

The day we visited Fossil Rim, it was cool outside, so we were able to open the windows and let Egan enjoy hanging out.

An emu.

An unknown animal that looks like he has a toupee (spelling?).

He was friendly.

I'm pretty sure Egan is saying something like "Manimal!" here.

See? very friendly.

This guy doesn't look as friendly, but he was.

I thought Egan would love the zebra because they are one of his favorites to point out in books and stuff, but they were a little too friendly and scared him.

Alright, so I can't really blame him. He was sticking his head in our car.

This guy was really friendly... and got really close.

After lunch, it was finally warm enough for the giraffes to come out of their shelter. They didn't get close to us this trip, but they were still really cool.

Our trip was so much fun! Can't wait to go back!

  2. What a great idea to do with a kid that can't run around on the playground! Looks like a lot of fun.
