I'm back

It wasn't my intention to take two days off from posting but with not having my regular day off and doing nothing but working then coming home to take care of stuff that needed taking care of I just didn't have a thing to write about.

Yesterday though, finally a day off, the weather was much cooler and I had a fun outing with Presley and her mom. We went to Pymatuning Deer Park. Of course the weather was calling for rain and earlier in the morning it was pouring. According to the forecast it was supposed to clear up by noon so not a problem. We got there and it was coming down good. We made a detour to see if we could find something else and then the rain was down to a sprinkle so we went back and headed in. Of course once we started the rain picked up again but we still went ahead.

Goldfish are a great snack for traveling.

When we went to the ticket counter the lady pointed out the food for feeding animals and I was going to grab a bag when she picked one up and said here you can just have this. The first thing you come to is the deer and as soon as they see you they come running.

Presley stood back and watched while her mom fed the deer. They were pretty grabbby and all fighting to get the snack.

We found a consession stand to get out of the rain for a few minutes and were met by a huge bear.

I probably would have taken way more pictures but it was just raining too much and I didn't want to get my camera soaked. I think I would have looked at a lot more of the animals too on a nicer day.

This guy and his friend didn't mind the rain one bit.

I think my favorite is Presley with the pacifier, looking at that bear. It's paw is bigger than her head! She looks very brave and determined, like she would smack him if he got out of line.

Well...I think I hafta disagree with Ginny...the best pic for me is the herd of deer with Presley watching in silence and awe!! Great photos Ann. Too bad the weather sucked.

Rose said...

Oh, Ann, Presley is just so cute. It is going to be fun watching her grow up.

Sandra said...

I agree with Ginny about the pacifier stare for the bear.. sorry the rain messed up your outing, glad you got OUT and also got to spend time with precious Presley... I also love Anni's pick of Presley watching the deer from afar... you three are better than me, I have never been to a park in the rain. I don't DO rain except from inside a building..

Looks like a fun place to visit! Glad you got a few pics in spite of the rain! Hugs!

How fun!

Sometimes I think giving the visitors food to give the animals makes them aggressive. Maybe if there is a fence barrier...that may help. A herd of anything is scary for kids, I think.

these days we seem to have to work around the rain if we want to do anything. Presley is such a cutie.

Sandee said...

I'm glad you had a great day off and with such a cutie pie.

Have a fabulous day, Ann. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

Gorgeous child! Look at those eyes! Just makes your heart go pitty-pat.

Connie said...

She is a cutie pie . . . such a pretty girl.
I love the photo of the duck, great pose :)

BeadedTail said...

Looks like a fun day with the little one!

Ann said...

She was a bit afraid of him at first.

Ann said...

You should have seen all those deer just come running. They definitely know they are getting snacks

Ann said...

Well these deer definitely knew that people were going to be handing out snacks and they all wanted to be the one to get it.

Ann said...

Thanks, me too :)

Ann said...

Yep, sure does.

Ann said...

It was at least for me.. I don't know how much Presley enjoyed it but she was good the whole time.

before you know it Presley will be a teenager...so enjoying whatever weather with her, is precious for sure...

I'm glad you got out and had fun in spite of the weather. :)
