Visiting Tupelo Buffalo Park

Visiting Tupelo Buffalo Park

Yep….I’ve seen all those things in the last two days.  Yesterday we decided to go see the sights and we ended up at the Tupelo Buffalo Park.  It seemed like a great idea until we arrived & there was no shade AND it was 94 degrees.  Evan was looking quite melty by the end (and so were the rest of us!).  I felt a bit bad for some of the animals because they were looking melty too but it was very cool to get to see zebras, buffalo, camels, giraffes, etc up close.

Feeding pony #3…right before it bit Evan’s little finger.  He was TRAUMATIZED! There was much screaming and crying & sobbing of “It will hurt for-ev-er~!”

Hot and tired boy

On the bus for the tour of the park. He is sweaty, bitten & ready for a nap!


One of the buffalo…he was giving us the stink eye.

It looks like so much fun! I love the giraffe picture. And the pony biting him? I distinctly remember being three and feeding a goose at the Calgary zoo, only to run out of popcorn and that nasty bird bit me in the butt. I was so upset.
