Today We Went to Bear World.

Posted on Updated on

It’s been a fun week.  Tony had school off this week, so we made sure to do some enjoyable things together.  We also accomplished a lot. Tony and I both started working out regularly and it’s feeling good.  We went to a furniture warehouse earlier this week and got Ash and Britt a bunk bed and mattresses.  On our way home, one of the mattresses flew off the roof of our car.  The warehouse worker hadn’t tied it on correctly.  I’m soooooo thankful it didn’t hit any other cars on the road.  We smooshed it into the car with the rest of us and Tony re-tied the other mattress securely to the top of the car.  We traveled the rest of the way home without any other occurrences.  The girls love their new big bed.  Ash was in a toddler bed and Britt was in a crib.  The transition was pretty easy.

Other things we’ve done this week are: go swimming, get the door and window in our car fixed (they were pitifully broken and we were driving around with a constant shrieking whistle because the window wouldn’t stay up), Tony took the older two to see a movie, we went shopping and tried out a new restaurant.

We also visited Yellowstone’s Bear World.  It’s a drive-through park with a petting zoo and a mini amusement park.  We all loved it.

bear world 7(i loved that there were no rules against taking my baby on the rides.  you can see that britt was loving it.)

bear world 6(look at that face!  elle is only 15 months but she loooooved the rides!)

bear world 3(in my opinion, this ride was the best.  it went around at the perfect speed and bounced up and down right at this spot.  here’s a fun shot of ash and britt with happy grins.  elle and i were behind them.)

bear world 2(see how much she loved it?  i’ve never been to any other amusement park that allowed such young children on their rides.  we WILL be going back before we have to move.  elle threw a massive temper tantrum after i pull her off of this ride.  p.s.: my hair looks terrible in this pic but it’s always windy here, though it actually doesn’t matter any more because i chopped it all off this evening.  **pleased**)

bear world 5(we saved the petting zoo for last.  they had deer, chickens, geese – that we were told to stay away from, a pig, goats, and peacocks.)

bear world 4(the friendly bear world porker.)

bear world 8(the pygmy goats were trying to nap but let the girls stroke them a bit anyway.)

Lots of fun to be had at Bear World!  I recommend it!  They are rather pricey but if you check their website, they sometimes have deals going on.  We went on a half-price day.  Makes it much more doable.  🙂
