TBWCYL Day 283 - Hungry?

Sorry I went AWOL for a couple of days. We drove to Lubbock this weekend to spend some time with friends but I didn't forget about my tasks. Saturday I was able to complete the task of "Go to the Zoo and Do feed the animals".

Lubbock doesn't have a real zoo but it does have a pumpkin patch that we took my goddaughter Addison to. And sure enough they had a petting zoo which contained the following animals.

  • A hog the size of a barrel
  • Goats
  • Chickens
  • Sheep
  • A donkey

I had to use some of Addison's freeze dried yogurt bites to feed the animals and started with the goat. You know when animals have peanut butter stuck to the roof of their mouths and make that smacking face? Well, yogurt bites have the same affect. The goat spit it out after a few seconds though and left it alone.

I tried the sheep but they weren't having it but the donkey was another story. I held one out for him and he used his lips to clean off my fingers and suck that yogurt bite down. He liked it so much I gave him a second one. I was afraid he might bite me so I kept pulling my fingers back and teasing him in the process. It is a weird feeling to have donkey lips flapping against your fingers.

I spent the rest of the day with Addison and it is amazing how exciting pumpkins apparently are. I wasn't too thrilled with them but apparently a one year old finds them quite entertaining and watching her pick one out was uber cute.

That was all,

Please tell me you have tons of pictures of this adorable child in the pumpkins. Oh, and I'm glad you still have all of your fingers.

Thomas and Jess took photos of Addy in the patch. Fingers are attached but were more likely to have gotten lost to frostbite than the donkey.

Man it was cold, but Addy is still excited about that pumpkin you pulled for her.

Also, I'm surprised the goat spat out the yogurt bite, they eat pretty much anything including sweatpant drawstrings (says the voice of experience)
