Lazy 5 Ranch

We have a great attraction right in our own backyard. It is The Lazy 5 Ranch in Mooresville, NC. We decided to pick that as our 2nd Summer Field Trip. I took so many great photo's, I wish I could put them all up. But I didn't want to take up all the space. Someday I will figure out how to do a collage or something... or maybe a slide show... but for now I only know how to add photo's into the post.

This guy was unbelievable... The tongue was huge and the kids were amazed at the texture. They wanted to see if their own tongue was as rough, but I had to quickly put a stop to that since we had touched this guys tongue first!!

This beautiful giraffe was so friendly... they had about 5 giraffes in the enclosure... one that had been born 5 months ago... and one was pregnant and would deliver in about 5 months... It was very sweet. A lot of babies were around for us to Ahhh over.

This Ostrich was huge, but his feet is what caught the kids attention. They couldn't believe that it could walk on only 2 toes... To cute :)

We had lunch in a perfect pavilion, nice and shady, and wonderful animals to look at close by. Of course our favorite was the playground.

The playground was great... the kids were able to run, hide and slide!! It was great to get out that energy from all that sitting on the wagon... hahahaha!! The kids were hot and tired within 10 minutes and we hadn't even been to the petting area yet.
We made a mad rush through the petting area and got a few pictures of some baby ducks, and peacocks. They were beautiful. That didn't stop the kids complaining of being hot and thirsty (they couldn't buy soda in the vending machine, so they complained quite a bit), so we left shortly after that. All in all we had a great morning... and next time we will remember to bring extra water... even though that's not what the whining was all about. Now I have to think of a way to top this trip next week...
