Elephant

We went on a fun field trip with our home school co-op group recently.  It was a place called Wild Things

Here’s a little snippet from the website:  “dedicated to providing professionally & humanely trained wild/exotic & domestic birds and animals for film, television, live productions, education and much much more. Wild Things takes great pride in offering sanctuary to many animals that can no longer participate in entertainment or would otherwise not have a home or family.

It was interesting, and the best part was feeding the elephant carrots!

It was a chilly day.  I remember Aiden didn’t want to be in this picture, but I don’t remember why.  They had a 5 gallon bucket of carrots.  We each got 2-3, including the moms.  There was definitely an “ewww” factor as the tip of the trunk is like the lips, but it was a great experience too!
