The Wild Animal Safari also has a children's petting zoo.
Feeding the goats.
My grandson loves to feed the animals.
This is a bear - hibernating? At least sleeping.
Not sure what this is.
Wonder what he is thinking about?
Trying to give the peacock some food.
Here's my little Tiger.
My bear that wears progressives sunglasses.
GS and grandpa.
Dad and daughter.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY:
It's only a moment not the rest of your life.
Have you ever been in a bad moment maybe even an earth shattering moment and you want to react fast just to end the pain? I sure have. A death of a pet, finding out you have cancer or a loved one does, depression, a death, a loss of a friend. At times like this maybe it lasts more then one second, but if you have a game plan for times like these you can help yourself to deal with it. I know I have.
It could even be a smaller moment like when someone gets mad at you. Criticizes you. Judges you harshly. Says things that aren't true.
It is I find a choice of how I react. Sometimes I react fast and get mad back, but a lot of times I just let the moment go.
I'll leave - go out of the room.
I'll start to do some deep breathing.
Wait awhile. Give it some time. And that moment will go away.
And I'll wait until another moment breaks through and hopefully things will look and be better.
Do you have a plan or a coping technique for bad moments?
