Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo

I went to visit some family in Tupelo, MS a few days ago. It was a very relaxing and fun-filled trip. I enjoyed spending time at the Montessori school that my aunt owns. My cousin, Hayden, and I had a water fight, which was a lot of fun and made me feel like a little kid again.

On Saturday, my 2 aunts, 2 cousins, and I visited the Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo just down the street from my aunt and uncle's house. The zoo part has several exotic animals and a petting zoo, as well as animals you would typically see at a zoo. The cool part is that the animals are all a lot closer to you than they are at most zoos. Also, you can buy bags of food to feed some of the animals. We were able to feed the giraffes, ponies, zedonks, goats, emus, llamas, deer, rabbits, and alpacas.

We also took a trolley ride around the grounds of the park and saw hundreds of buffalo, zebra, donkeys, Texas Longhorns, and even a camel. It was a lot of fun!

I am feeding Tall Boy, the giraffe.

This is a close-up of Tall Boy eating out of my hand. If I wasn't fast enough, he liked to wrap his tongue around my arm. It was kind of gross, but kind of funny and cute!

Kimberly was trying to get me to kiss Tall Boy. As cute as he was, there was no way in the world I was going to stick my mouth on that thing!

A hilarious picture of a goat waiting for some food! This picture makes me laugh every time I see it!

Finally, a picture of my two very handsome and adorable cousins.
