On Wednesday my mom took my nephew, two of my nieces and I to Pymatuning Deer Park, it's like a family owned mini-zoo. They have over 250 animals including lots of goats, a lion, some black bears, a zebra, cougars, some monkeys, a bunch of birds and more! It was probably one of the last few times I'll get to spend time with the kids before they go back to school (plus I can never resist an opportunity to take photos of animals) so I took the day off work.
The only animals that had me ooh-ing and ahhh-ing were the....
They were absolutely precious. They had tons of room to run and play but seemed to mostly enjoy being up close and personal with park visitors. At the front gate crackers for the animals were sold, so we had fun trying to only feed the smallest of each kind of animal - the big guys were so pushy!

  1. That second to last photo is too cute! What a cheeky face.
    At our local zoo you can go into the same area as the deer, they seem to love chasing people around.

  8. So pretty! I love all kinds of animals, but I think on these pics you can see that deer are animals that are equally cute whether they're babies or grown-ups. Adorable!

  31. I had a neighbor growing up who had a couple of deer in his backyard. It was fun for a 10 year old to go and feed them on the weekend. This looks like it was much fun!
