Mini Vacation

On Friday we headed to Phoenix and hung out at some play areas while we waited for Chad to get off of work. Then we took turns going to the Temple and took the girls to see the temple lights again...



They wouldn't cooperate for the picture but they really did have fun. We stayed at a hotel which the girls just think is the coolest thing in the world. On the way home we stopped at the Rooster Cogburn Ranch to feed the animals. They had donkeys...


and really cute deer....


and goats. They had some of the goats in a pen high up in the air. The goats really like it and it was fun feeding them.


You had to put the feed inside the yellow cup and then crank the handle and send it up to the goats. They had other goats you could hand feed too. Chad saw on the sign that they will eat it out of your mouth. He picked a long piece of food and fed a goat...

 
 
Then he convinced me since his goat didn't even touch him. I hesitantly agreed and Chad picked out one shorter than his was and I got licked three times before the darn goat took the food. Chad thought that was pretty funny... thanks Honey. 


We fed ostriches too. They are a little scary though I kept thinking they would peck Lydia's hand off for sure...


The coolest part was feeding the lorakeets. Right when we walked in and were getting instructions they swarmed us...


They take off the lids to the nector and drink out of your hand...



Lydia was insistent on doing it herself but freaked out when the bird landed on her hand and dropped the cup. Then we fed some ducks...


The girls loved feeding all of the different animals and it was nice to get away for a little bit.

  1. Wow they have a lot more animals now than they did when I went 6 or 7 years ago. That is so cool!!! But why in the heck are the goats way up in the air???
