Well, the ostrich welcoming crew was in full force, and they preyed on the naïve newbies. Man, they were tough and persistent! We quickly learned to roll the windows up when we saw ostriches, but soon we were awestruck by all the other animals that came to the window for food. The kids went wild, and unfortunately, we totally trashed Brandy’s van. After we made two rounds of the drive-thru part, we headed to the petting zoo area and dove into our picnic lunch. A goat hopped up on the table to look for any stray food, and then the girls chased him and his siblings around the goat pin.
After feeding the giraffe some carrots and almost dying of a heat stroke, we loaded back into the car for the trip home (an hour and 40 minutes). Of course, we thought we had earned ice cream cones from Chick-fil-A to round out the hilariously fun day! I am sure I had laughed off all of the calories!
