This weekend we decided to take a short road trip to the Arbuckle Mountains...yes, you read that right. Oklahoma isn't all flat! Some may call them hills, but you get my point! ;-) Mommy forgot the real camera, so here is our trip in iPhone pictures.
Luke and Molly using the headphones on the way there.
We actually rented a nice A frame house overlooking Arbuckle Lake with a huge deck...only problem was the opening in the railing was way to wide for this mommy. The house also had one of those spiral metal staircases. My nerves would have been shot if we stayed, so I called the owner to see if she had anything else available. Thank goodness she had a log cabin close by. Of course it wasn't on the lake, but with this heat and drought nothing really is right on the lake, right ?!?!
Here is a picture of M & L enjoying the hot (cold) tub! They had a ball playing in there!
Our first adventure was Arbuckle Wilderness. It is a huge drive through animal park were you can feed the animals right out of your car window. I hadn't been there since I was a kid. M & L enjoyed it. The Zebra was my favorite!
Of course we stopped into the gift shop for a souvenir. L picked out a play set and M picked out a stuffed lemur with a baby lemur.
After picking out their souvenirs we walked over to a play area. They had fun playing on these motorized toys. :)
The next day we headed to GW exotic animal park. They have over 190 large cats. Most of those have been rescued from poor living environments. They also have bears, monkeys, birds, wolfs and lots more. They run strictly off donations. They strive to make the living environments as best as possible for the animals despite being caged up. You can tell it is their passion.
These cats are so pretty!
Cletus the camel! Luke thought he was pretty funny!
At the end of the tour we got to go into a petting area to play with the baby tigers. They were so adorable!! I wish they stayed small because I would so want one!
The playing turned a little rough when one tried to take my sons leg off!
So Luke made friends with this little wiener dog! A little more his size! So sweet!
We had a great time! It was way too hot, but we didn't let that spoil our fun! :) Have a great week friends!
