This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

GW Animal Park

Brad has been on fall break these last few days and unfortunately I had to work all of them. He did get to spend a couple nights with his grandparents out in the country and he had fun. We had planned to head up to NW Oklahoma and rent a dune buggy for the sand dunes. The bad news was that when we called they were all booked up for over a week and there would be no where to rent a buggy.

We brainstormed and came up with a few other options and decided on GW Animal Park out in Wynnewood. We were going to try Arbuckle Wilderness too, but I read a lot of bad reviews from recently after their management changed and they got rid of their exotic animals.

It was about an hour drive from our house and right off the highway. The admission price is a little higher than I like, but it's completely ok because all of the animals there are rescued and the money goes to their upkeep.

Despite it being October, it was actually pretty warm today and most of the animals were sleeping while we were looking around. I guess it was their nap time!

There were several tigers, a couple lions, a few bears, racoons, monkeys, snakes, skunks, cockatoos, a wolf, hyenas, as well as loose geese, chicken, roosters, and turkeys running around. It was a fun day! We had a late lunch in Pauls Valley when we got done then came home and relaxed.
