Snakes and Tortoises and Gators Oh MY!

When box 403 was opened a surprise envelope was found.

And inside it were these tickets given to P.O. Box 143
from a wonderful person, Ms. Suzanne!

We have lived here for 8 years now and have never been to Gatorland.

There was SO much to see there we weren't sure which way to go first.

I was SO excited to find this 100 year old tortoise!
This tortoise was alive in 1915. 
Imagine what it's lived through.

Just look at that face! 

Lily found a new friend.

There is a lot of humor in the park shows and 
the signs helped keep that light hearted mood going throughout the park. 

I thought they were GREAT!

Gabriella worked on conquering her fear of snakes.
She was not to happy...

But, she still gave a smile for the camera.

We found this furry guy in the petting zoo.
Wonder what he was trying to say?

Looks like Gabriella may have a fear of goats too!

This miniature brahman bull was a cutie. 
We called her Norman!
And then put City Slickers on our list of movies to re-watch ASAP.

They don't call it Gatorland for nothing.
We watched gator wrestling for the first time.

Benjamin enjoyed the show.

There was a gator/crocodile jumping contest.
Watch the hand!

Later we headed out on the nature trail.

Tons of great photo ops.

We found some history which the kids thought was cool.

And we found animals in their natural environment.
Lots of them!!

It was a WONDERFUL outside day!
Gatorland exceeded our expectations and 
we would recommend it whole heartedly!
