Tiger Creek


The weekend of Ava'a birthday Naggy and Pappy and Uncle Kevin and Aunt Megan came to help us celebrate.  We decided to go visit Tiger Creek since Ava has a fascination with animals, and especially loves to growl.  She has a very cool way of saying "Lion" with a growl inserted in the middle of the it...really, it is one of those things I just can't duplicate. 

Ava was pretty excited to see all the lions.  And it honestly was a pretty cool place.  We got to hear all about the stories of the lions and how they ended up at Tiger Creek, which is a rescue shelter for big cats.

Ava had a blast.  Literally.  She pointed, growled and smiled the whole time. 

She did her best to make sure her Daddy had a good time too!



Carli was not quite as enthusiastic as Ava was, but she did at least look at the big cats for a little while. 


And then she insisted that she couldn't walk for fear that the cats would get her...Pappy was heartbroken that he ended up carrying her much of the morning.  Right!


See her enthusiasm!
See the lion in the background?



Ava had no fear and would go right up to the fences and point and talk.  


We had a great morning at Tiger Creek and Ava had a blast!  And that's what counted the most since the weekend was about celebrating her!  :)
