KHP – A Day to Tobias Lake Zoo

Today Matt, my mother-in-law, the girls and I all played hooky from work and school. Matt and I cheated a little bit slipping work on the computer in the morning, on the phone and in the car but we attempted to have a stress free family day. It was a gorgeous 74 degrees with a slight breeze and sunny skies. We hopped in the car and headed just an hour north of our home to a small zoo in the foot hills surrounding Harrisburg.

Tobias Lake Zoo is a family owned and operated zoo that offers Safari style tours of the gorgeous estate. We drove in an open air bus to greet all sorts of animals. The girls were thrilled to be greeted by hippie cows, Z-donks and beautiful bison. It was quiet and relaxing. This will be a trip we will make again. I was away from my computer all day and it is late on Friday evening. I will let the pictures show you the rest of the story.

Matt was very nervous with the fact I was so close to the peacock.  Apparently there was a history of ornery peacock family in Oregon:)
