Birthday Goodness

For my birthday this year I requested we go to Lake Tobias as a family. We've been wanting to check out this place for a couple years now, so we made it a birthday outing. Rod generously gave up his Sunday afternoon nap to take us there after church Sunday. We all enjoyed it... The big cats... We did the safari tour, which is an extra $5 per person, but well worth the experience. These animals come right up to you, looking for treats!

I can't imagine walking around with those things on my head.
I need a panaramic camera...
This was a little strange but entertaining, none the less. The petting zoo was also fascinating. Some of the sheep would not leave us alone!
I had no idea you could pet a zebra!Or have a staring contest with an ostrich..

A memorable birthday with my men! I asked the boys to guess how old i am, Ben quick declared "81"! not quite. But we'll go with 33.

Can't wait to show my kids your pictures. We LOVE zebras!! About a year ago there was one that lived in Gap. He has since moved to the big zoo in the sky ;) But we still have Striper's picture hanging in our kitchen. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Happy Birthday! Giving up Sunday afternoon nap is a big thing too! At least in our household. : )
