bonnie springs

Photobucket

we took the kids out to bonnie springs near red rock canyon today and they loved it!

we thought it was pretty cool when we saw this peacock as soon as we walked in.
it kind of honked at atticus and startled him which he thought was real funny.

but then we saw this peacock and realized it was even cooler
he was flaunting his beauty for the females nearby, flirtin it up!
Photobucket

atticus tried to get closer but the peacock would get all agitated and shakes his feathers at him
hence the very serious expression.

their petting zoo was pretty awesome. several of the animals were just roaming free
like this little reindeer with the softest antlers ever.

he even came over to give beck a little love in the stroller

petting the donkey
(that sounded like leah)
Photobucket

i think the donkey had given atticus a little lick on the hand right here

mini goat

and this ram that i was kind of scared of
sort of thought he was going to ram me in the knees
quick picture and moved along
Photobucket

and these sweet little bambi's gallivanting about
attius pet and pet this one until it finally gave him a little nip on the tummy

riding the train

there was also a little old western town with shops and little shows

once again beckett was scared of walking on planks! it is the funniest thing!
for some reason he just thinks they are so scary to walk on. he crawled up the stairs and then
kind of did this little side crawl along the planks, very skeptical the whole time.
Photobucket

he finally felt kind of sad about it so i had to help him along.
such a mystery tho...
Photobucket

this is what atticus did while beck was in the background facing his walking-on-planks fear...
sat on this little stool and begged for the candy they were selling in the store behind him.
Photobucket

however, beck had no problem chowing a snack in a runaway mining cart
Photobucket

or climbing rusty things
Photobucket

and yee-hawing on the wooden donkey
Photobucket

both boys got a real kick out of sticking their heads thru holes!
Photobucket

Photobucket

beckett thought it was especially hilarious!
Photobucket

as well as his time in baby jail

anyway - it was a fun little outing and great way to spend the holiday with the family!

i hope you had a happy memorial day too!

Your peacock picture is WAY better than the one I took through the glass at the zoo with my cell phone. Shocking, I know.
