Field Trip with Emma - Bayou Wildlife Park

How fun to end the year of field trips with a visit to the Bayou Wildlife Park in Alvin! I got to drive with Emma, 3 friends and Mrs. Diekroeger riding with me. It was a beautiful day and there was so much to see and do, we had a fabulous time!

We were greeted at the entrance by a few horned animals and this sweet Emu looking for a handout. Sadly, we didn't have any food yet!
The kids all did a little pony ride and then checked out some of the animals in the petting area...mostly goats, but also a giant pot belly pig. There were also a few giraffes to look at nearby.
Then we had our sack lunches and Emma really enjoyed having mommy there to help and share a yummy PB&J with her!

Then we all boarded up on the jeep ride and went out on the tour. It was great to see all the animals close up and some of them were really hungry it seems! Emma was so brave to feed animals right from her bucket! Many of her friends were very brave too and the animals got lots of food from our group!
She really loved feeding the camels at the end of the jeep ride! They were so sweet but a little persistent about getting the food and then following our jeep!

After the jeep ride, we headed over for some photos by the big sign. Everyone was so cute lined up there and poking their heads through the people cutouts!
I am so very glad I was able to go on such a fun field trip outing with Emma!
