celebrating Rosie

When asked how she wanted to celebrate her birthday this year she looked somewhat puzzled by the question and said, "by going to Lion Country Safari". This is exactly what she did last year so I suppose I should have known she would do it again. Child is a creature of habit and doesn't particularly like change and really did like LCS. For 3 years in a row she went to the Miami Childrens Museum so asking what she wanted to do this year was a mute point to her, she would obviously want an encore performance of last years festivities.

I chose to celebrate her day the weekend before since her birthday falls on a Wednesday and that is just an impossible day to celebrate fun things what with school and work and all. Quick disclaimer: all photos of the animals were taken through the car windows, which may have needed washing! but due to common sense and park rules could not be opened for even a nano second

Front seat
shhhhh. don't wake them. we learnt that the lions used to be wandering free but idiots kept getting out of their cars so now the lions are behind not one but 2 fences. Who gets out of their car?
Probably something I will never ever see again, a baby rhino nursing? Her name is Blossom
This rhino unnerved Lily and she asked me to move
Rosie fed her! OMG she is gorgeous This was after we parked and were wandering through the exhibits, I didn't randomly wind down my window and hand them lettuce...I swear!
