Last Chance

With birthday number three just around the corner, this was our last chance to take our kiddos to Rolling Ranch and get them free admission.  Plus, Uncle Doug and Aunt Sara are visiting from Germany, so they came with us, and brought Grandma and Grandpa Selvage too!

This may seem like an overload of pictures, but I had my camera set on sports mode today to catch the animals in motion, and we took 465 pictures.  I narrowed it down to just under 3 dozen.

Some baby goats slipped into the gazebo to visit the under 12 crowd.

Tommy got licked by a goat within the first minute, and he didn't like it,
so he was a little shy around this baby camel.  It was a cutie!

Yes, that's TWO elk eating out of my hand.  One fun fact that
 I learned today is that they do not have any top teeth,
 just a bottom row, so they are very gentle eaters.

Photo bombed by a bull elk.  Nyah, nyah!
This water buffalo swam up out of the pond for a lunch break.


Excuse me sir, could I bother you for a bit of lunch?

Tommy takes the reins.

The shorter animals, at least those without antlers or horns,
generally stick their heads in under the seats to reach for food.

Tom's new pal, Humphrey the hump-back.

Ellie's turn to drive
Are you feeling warm breath on your neck, Doug?

It has been a while since we've seen them, so it took a little
time for my shy kiddos to warm up to their uncle and aunt.
Couldn't tell that at home later though, by the way Ellie
was talking about "Aunt Syrup".

Aunt Sara took Ellie and Tommy to the playground after the wagon ride.


  1. What a fun day. Three, oh my the get to go to big primary soon.

  2. Where is that place? I just looks so fun! Again, I can just tell in the pictures how much Tom's parents love the kids. It's so heartwarming. I know you all waited a long time for those two little miracles!

  3. That looks like fun! And a beautiful day. Happy Birthday, Tommy and Ellie!

  4. Great day to celebrate with family


If you've been here for a visit, I'd love to know, even if you just say hi!
