Lake Tobias

Saturday we drove to Halifax, PA so we could go to Lake Tobias Wildlife Park.  We got there a little after they opened and it was already packed.  We walked around the zoo and petting zoo.  Olivia loved looking at all the animals.  

(I was worried about this ostrich.  He looked at Olivia like she was lunch)

After lunch we took the safari ride.  After we bought our tickets we saw a sign that the ride is bumpy and pregnant women should ride with caution. ha! That was an understatement.  It was a VERY bumpy ride.  Olivia squealed when the animals got close enough for her to touch them.  
(Pre-meltdown)

The safari ride was 45 minutes long and about 30 minutes into it Olivia had had enough.  She was tired of being held, tired of being in the sun (she refused to wear a hat) and made sure everyone (even the animals) knew that she wasn't happy.  So once the safari was over we called it a day.  Unfortunately she didn't take a nap in the car and her bad mood continued all the way home.  I don't know what could be worse than a toddler having a tantrum in a car.  Nothing made her happy.  Thankfully she took a nap when we got home and was in a much better mood when we went to Grammy and Pap's for dinner.
