I really wanted to take Oliver to a petting zoo, but since he isn’t two yet I wasn’t sure how he would do with the animals. After doing some research Lee and I decided to try Bee City which was about 45 minutes north of Kyrston’s house. This was our first longish trip with him and let me say right up front Oliver was an absolute dream. He did great on the car ride and loved most of the animals. We all had an absolute blast and I was so happy everything went well. Can’t wait to have more adventures with my little guy.
The only downside was that the animals that were far away from their fence (including a huge tiger) Oliver didn’t really see. He was just too young to get that an animal laying and not really moving around was anything. Thankfully that was the exception rather than the rule and there was plenty to keep him entertained.
As you can see it was a terrific day and we can’t wait to go back when he is older next year. Next up we are finally moving towards Minneapolis. We will be stopping in Nashville, St. Louis, and Kanasa City along the way. Our next grandson is due July 7th and looking forward to being there for the birth.

Looks like Oliver had a wonderful time! Hope there was a lot of hand washing as petting zoos are notorious for passing on salmonella.
Safe travels as you head back to our neck of the woods. In a tornado warning right now. You just never know with MN weather.
Love this post!!! Safe Travels……..
Oliver is just precious. So sweet to see things through his eyes. I’m sure you will miss his as you travel west.
