On Tuesday we packed the kids up and headed to Jim Peck's Wildwood Wildlife Park. Collin and I both have memories of going here when we were kids. While many of the places we went to back then have closed, Jim Peck's is still open and going strong.
What I remember most about our trips as kids is petting the deers and porcupines. Now the first animal you see when walking in are the goats. And those little buggers are hungry.
The best part of Jim Peck's is that you can get up close with the animals and there is a big variety of animals. There are farm animals like goats, bunnies and chickens.
|Can you see the little monkey in the window?|
And then there are the prairie dogs, with the life size prairie dog tunnel. Like last year's trip, this was probably the highlight for the boys.
|I totally want a prairie dog!|
We finished the morning with a train ride for the big boys before heading to Paul Bunyan's for lunch.
We had a great morning and we came home for an afternoon jaunt to the beach, floating in the water and watching the speedboats. Ahhh, vacation.
