Midweek Vacation

One perk of choosing education as a career is that I will always have the same school breaks as our kiddos.  Fall Break was this week so Doc took a few days off and we made a much needed trip to Duncan to see family.

With Doc’s and I’s fluctuating schedules, it has been too long since we’ve managed to see Little Bird’s paternal Grandma and Grandpa.  We would have preferred being able to see them on a weekend when they weren’t working, but we will take what we can get!  They were nice enough to let us come during the work week to visit so that we could see them and give Evelyn some time with her Fowler Family.

Lucky for us, Grandma was able to take a half-day off to go with us to the Arbuckle Wilderness to a drive thru animal park!


Doc piloted our Little Blue Versa through the “wilderness”IMG_2295

We fed goats, camels, ostriches, zebras, giraffes, emus, cows, geese, etc. 

IMG_2297This sounds like fun, but these animals are AGGRESSIVE!  We spent a good deal of time screaming and rolling up windows quickly.  Luckily, Grandma was on duty to hold Evelyn when she was scared.  Also, having an extra set of hands allowed time for Doc and I to feed the animals out our windows!  Doc loved the Zebras and I couldn’t get over the funny faces the donkeys made.


We also managed to take Evelyn to see her Great Aunt Judy and Great Uncle Lloyd.  She certainly seemed to enjoy Uncle Lloyd!
