Going On A Bear Hunt
We made a stop in at Arbuckle Wilderness near Davis, OK this week. It was time to introduce Sebastian to the joys of aggressive ostrich and ornery camels. Arbuckle Wilderness is a wildlife park that you can drive through to observe and feed animals that aren't native to Oklahoma, minus the bison and deer. My cousins and I have fond memories of trips through the park involving bitten fingers, being chased by ostriches when we got out of the car, being licked by a giraffe, and having to push a vintage station wagon uphill for several yards. Fond memories.
Note the bison above. Some might call them buffalo. Unless you went to OBU.
This was taken two seconds before this ostrich had its head in the car searching my personal space for feed. If my family hadn't been laughing hysterically, I may have peed my pants. When I was about one year old, my parents took me on this same drive with similarly crazed ostriches and my curiosity earned me a bitten finger. They tell that story every summer.
This is Sebastian sticking his head through the sun roof trying to show the rhinos that he had a picture of a rhino on his shirt. They weren't much bothered. And yes, we let him sit in the front on the console as we drove 8 miles an hour through the park.
Brett was finally able to join us on vacation! We're gearing up for birthday number 3 on the 4th of July and hoping the 100 degree weather won't keep us from enjoying the outdoor parts. Sebastian is getting a Thomas the Train birthday this year and has requested chocolate cake, chocolate cupcakes, chocolate ice cream, and fireworks and that boy is going to get it all.
Off to ride the train at the park. Because we love trains.
