Well, sort of. Last weekend we went to The Wild Animal Park with Freckle's Grandparents and Great Gramma. Freckles and I were actually pretty sick that day, though some fresh air did us good. It was a nice day out, not too hot just right. We took it easy for the most part. Since Gramma was in a wheel chair.
The best part of the day for Freckles was seeing an owl up close and personal...
We didn't make it up the hill to see the elephants... Maybe next time.
Great Gramma treated us to ice cream cones which were perfect for sore throats mind you.
Great Gramma even got Freckles a little souvenir....
Gramma and Pop Pop got her a barn owl stuffed animal to add to her growing collection. I am sure we'll get a picture later... Pop Pop had a bunch of pictures on his camera but didn't send them our way...so if your reading this Dad...e-mail me the pics. LOL!!!
Next stop, we took a ride on the wild safari tram through Africa...
I told you we went to Africa!
We even got to see some rare animals...like the John Deere and the bobcats above.
I guess their re-doing the lions den.
We had an extra guest for lunch...This silly Haron ate a fry right out of my hand and wasn't a bit scared of me. He must be used to all the humans from the park. That was pretty sweet!
Later that afternoon we finished off the day watching the bird show...Freckles was thrilled that an owl flew just feet away from our heads. It was a fun filled day regardless of being sick the whole time. I think we are slowly on the mend...A church member brought us a meal the other night which was helpful since I have been running fevers all week. So nice to think someone even thought of us...Since Mr. Darling has been so heavy into the books finishing off his third year in Seminary...He's finally done and now preparing for a Summer internship until Fall. It will be a nice change of scenery and pace. Thanks again to all who left comments and e-mails your so sweet to send get well wishes!
Have a great Friday!!!
