E.P.I.C. FAMILY REUNION - Last Day and the Animal Park

We were sorry to see Friday July 1, 2016 roll around as that was the last day we would all be together. We finished off this E.P.IC. REUNION with a trip to the Virginia Safari Park. 

We loaded everyone up in the truck and a mini-van and drove through the park feeding the animals. I will only caption a few of these, so enjoy the photos. 

I've got my eye on you.

Kelly is behind us in the mini-van taking pictures!

Aunt Cali says "smile Belle"!
I don't think she was ready. 

After driving through the park we headed for the petting zoo area.

Going into the aviary and feeding the Budgies (parakeets) was a highlight for most of us.

We had Popsicle sticks with bird see on the and the birds would just flock to us.

Cody and Preston are showing off their birding skills. 

Don't eat it Odi!!

That's the way Alisa!

The other favorite thing was the Giraffe petting station! This was so cool!

Later in the afternoon Jesse and Kelly left to go home. The rest of us stayed and enjoyed our own personal Iron Chef Competition with the secret ingredient of Peanut Butter. We had an Amazing Salad with Peanut Butter dressing, a delicious Pad Thai and a scrumptious bread pudding with peanut butter Ice Cream and Peanut Butter Carmel Sauce. The bread pudding was voted the winner. 
Over the next few days all of the family left. Being all together was just like heaven, and I can't wait until we do it again. I LOVE MY FAMILY!
