We got to see a kangaroo

19 Jan

And a sloth, and an anteater and some cool little sugar gliders. All in one day. All in Virginia.

We got invited to see some cool animals and Miss H was thrilled.

First it was a sloth. She lives in the house and is pretty cool.

Then we got to meet the kangaroo. She was really good with the kids. How many kids (or adults!) can say they have petted a kangaroo?

Then we got to meet the cool anteater. He is the mischievous one in the bunch and wanted all the attention.

I had no idea they could climb.

Miss H liked the sugar gliders because they climbed on her arm. The anteater tried to climb up her leg but he was on the bigger side.

It was a fun day with some fun animals.

Plus we got to bring two books home by the author and owner of the animals!

Of course we have to do the tourist stuff

30 Aug

While sitting on the beach, getting sun, swimming and building sand castles is great fun- we always have to hit up the touristy things too.

First, we got a great view of the beach from the Myrtle Beach Skywheel and compared it to our other Skywheel ride. Now, Miss H wants to ride all the sky wheels!

We had perfect weather for this adventure.

After spinning around in the sky, we headed to miniature golf. She got a little coaching from Kerry.

Then, Miss H got two hole in ones!

Later in the week, Kerry found Aliigator Adventures and this was our next tourist stop. I was a little skeptical of big reptiles but I have to admit this place was pretty cool. When we first saw a big group of ‘teenage’ alligators basking in the sun, I thought they were fake 🙂

We got to see them being fed (see that huge one jumping up for chicken!).

And, Miss H enjoyed the reptile show and petting the baby.

07222014-8

There were all sorts of different reptiles in varying sizes and colors and overall the place was cool. We all learned a lot about alligators!
