A Little Normalcy

Trick or Treating at the Animal Park

We went to the Wild Animal Park yesterday. They were re-opened and doing things for Halloween. The kids did a scavenger hunt all over the park and then got a handful of candy for their prize. They also made bats and ghosts in the new Discover Station area. The park was very empty. That was great. We wandered around slowly and lunch there. We watched the elephant show. Sunita didn't want to do the show the trainer was asking her to do. She made up her own. She walked along the balance beam and got up on the big tree stump all on her own. The trainers didn't know why she was doing this but it was fun to watch how her mind was working. We saw the Cheetah sisters being fed and then relaxing.

I like the new tram better. It's not as long but it's much closer to the animals. We got to see the devastation from the fire too. They literally stopped at the fence lines. The Animal Park has an amazing fire prevention system.

All in all it was a good day. It was so nice to be out. We are coughing a little more today though. Just that little bit of exertion I guess.
