All we were missing was the Ark

On a dreary and rainy Sunday morning, we trekked off to the African Safari Wildlife Park. I had been reading about it on the blog of Christi Thomas because this was a favorite pastime for she and her family before she passed away.

There were animals all over the place at this place. It was hilarious in some places, annoying in others. Like when the llama with the really bad underbite was following beside us ... hilarious.

When the herd of buffalo were standing in the middle of the road and we literally had to bump them with the front of our van ... semi-hilarious.

When the buffalo came up and started to bump US with their heads and horns ... not so hilarious.

But the kids had a ball, and we even got to visit Cheese Haven. They had this whole long case of cheese and sausages and whatnot, along with all sorts of samples. The man behind the counter said "this is just 10 percent of what we have. The other 90 percent is behind the cases."

And the Door Man thought he was in Cheese Heaven. He was stuffing (seriously, I would not make this up) cheese and sausages in his pockets and he would reach in from time to time and pull out a tasty little morsel, saying things like "I love cheese" or "this is just in my pockets for later." Because ... you never know when you will ever make it back to Cheese Haven.

Of course, he was calling it Cheese Cutters by the time we got home.

I can just imagine those "cutters"! I hope the rest of the family didn't suffer from them!

Having a hard time getting going today. It is almost 8am and here I sit, Ab's is still asleep. Carly and daddy left a hour ago to start their day. Pretty bad when a six year old is more motivated than her mother.

There were NO samples out for the chocolate cheese, and that immediately bummed me out ... until I saw the display for the Breitenbach (or however that is spelled) wine. So I consoled myself with that purchase.

I so did not get the "rolled by a buffalo" line in your other post. Now I do. Yikes. I've heard they have attitude, not sure I'd be bumping them outta the way. LOL!

Great pictures. Cheese Haven. Cheese Cutters. I love that he was stuffing them in his pocket for later.
