One Last Hurrah (and Yeehaw!)

All of the boys had the day off on Friday, so we had planned to go to the Franklin Drive Thru Safari as our last, end of summer hurrah. But when Jackson's allergist appointment unexpectedly lasted 4 hours and he was so wiped out afterwards, we decided to postpone until Saturday morning. So after back-to-school haircuts on Saturday morning for all the boys, we made the short drive to Franklin to check out the animals. 

Y'all...it was so much fun. We laughed so much and everyone had a really great time!

There were so many animals, and they were all SO excited to see us!

Part of the fun of this activity is just the novelty. I mean, where else can you pose for a selfie with a zebra? We were all big fans of the zebras!

The ostriches and emus on the other hand...not so much. Bless their hearts....I'm sure they are very nice animals too, but their pecking is a bit...forceful and they just look creepy!

Tell me that's not terrifying! This video just makes me laugh so hard.


Sweet Benjamin equally enjoyed the animals and getting to ride in the front seat!


There were so many giggles, happy squeals and shrieks of excitement! We had a blast observing and interacting with all of the creatures, big and small!

After driving through the safari once, we took a break for a picnic lunch and to see some more animals. Andrew said his favorite animals were these guinea pigs! He would have stayed with them all day!

Look at our baby with this baby giraffe! I would bet they are about the same age!

We got back in the van and drove around the animal park once more. Benjamin got to drive this time! But...then he fell asleep at the wheel. Would you believe these pictures were all taken within about 10 minutes? Driving is exhausting!

What a fun day!
