A day at the Wildpark!

The Potzberg Wildpark is very close to our house and a great place to spend the afternoon! Wildparks are similar to a zoo without the fanciness and a lot less fences...one of the features we like. If you are looking for lions, tigers, or elephants this is not the place to go, but if you are looking for animals that your kids can pet and feed then you have hit the jackpot!

Notice Lauren's arm position?? I guess it seemed like a good idea to scratch her arm, but it sure looks almost like a not so nice gesture to me.

Our first stop was the goat area and playground. I just took pictures and stood with Ian. By the time everyone was finished playing with these animals they had goat "stinky" all over them...GROSS! I can pass on that experience.

These goats even managed to take Lauren down and they wouldn't let her go...so she says! She loved every minute of this stinky stampede!

We played on the playground before taking off to hike the rest of the park. What could be better than spinning in this wooden tube?? Getting this thing going fast enough to spin people all the around!

We did manage to feed and pet LOTS of animals.
Jacque considered getting some eggs....





We were all amazed at how soft the velvet was on these antlers!

The view is absolutely beautiful from the park!
Those faint white poles in the background are windmills.

We ended up back at the playground.
They don't look like they're having a good time at all!!!




Did Colton fall off or get knocked down?...depends on who you ask!

I'm glad to see what the park is like. I have passed it numerous times but we haven't been there. Keeping busy, eh?
