Circle G Ranch

If you think our babes have been neglected while we were out of town, you would be highly mistaken. They have been spoiled absolutely rotten and have loved every minute of it. I wanted to save this one too for a separate post because I wanted to talk a minute about this fabulous place they got to go called Circle G Ranch. It's located in Strawberry Plains,TN, which is right outside of Knoxville. My sister Ginny thought she would take the kids on Thursday because she heard they had a petting zoo and it was fun for toddlers. Isn't it the greatest when you are completely surprised by something??

Circle G Ranch is home to more than 500 animals in their natural environment. They have this HUGE petting zoo for kids, and do lots of school field trips there each year. But the coolest surprise is that they have a Drive-Thru Zoo! Kids can get a bucket of feed, and drive through the zoo and feed each animal they wish. It was a huge surprise to Ginny. It's so great because the kids can stay in their car seats, and you just roll down the window to let them see the animals! The animals are, of course, very used to people and very gentle. But, I just thought this was the greatest idea ever and the kids had an absolute blast. You don't have to get toddlers out of the car?? Genius! (however, you must want to get the vacuum out when you get home, lol)

Yes, this is a forewarn that here come a photo dump, but it is just so awesome I had to post loads of pics.

**I will preface this by also saying this isn't for everyone. LOL. But, Ginny was ALL about it, and it's totally up her alley!

Seriously, so happy!!

"Wha you doin donkey?"

Jules: ever the delicate, careful girl. She kept telling Ginny to roll the window up, then back down, then back up, then back down.


Quite possibly one of my favorite pictures...ever.

They just come right on in!
