Tanganyika Wildlife Park...

… by far one of the coolest places I have ever been!!!!!!

Get ready for lots of pictures …

Feeding the giraffe a very expensive piece of lettuce.
(one piece of lettuce cost 2 coins, each coin a dollar - I wonder if next time we can bring in our own?)

 I think this little joey has outgrown his pouch! Just wants to be close to his momma I guess. 

I absolutely loved getting to pet the kangaroos!!!

Blaykleigh stepped it up a notch and gave out hugs. 

 I just about snuck one of these home in my purse! They had the softest fur and the cutest noses.

Treats are serious business when you are a goat! 

Ellie and Blaykleigh checking out the shark-sized koi fish. 

Granny making sure Blaykleigh didn't join the ducks for an afternoon swim. 

Drew and his shirt blended in nicely with them lemur folk.

Baby lemur sitting on Blaykleigh's shoe & holding her hand. Presh. 

These little guys were very drawn to the cell phones! 

Granny made a new friend. 

See! What did I tell you. This little guy was desperately trying to take a 'selfie' … wonder if he has an instagram account? ;) 

They loved Megan <3

Iowa State Fair 2013

Our first Iowa State Fair! It was a very hot day (like surface of the sun hot) but overall we really enjoyed ourselves. From people watching, to loving on animals (my personal fave), to tasty beer, amazing food and rides. I think this is definitely something we will have to do again next summer. 

Enjoying a little state fair action. 

Fried food booth after fried food booth. I was a little disappointed that I never found myself a fried pickle. Next year! 

Beer run. 

Just our 2-year old showing her goat. ;) 

Horses look good next to me. Hehe.

I entered a raffle to win a horse. Sadly, I did not win. But one day, it will happen. It will! 

Going down the huge-big slide on a potato sack with her daddy. 

Aren't baby piglets the cutest?!
