Me's Zoo

This past weekend, we went to Me's Zoo in Parker City, Indiana.

From their website:
ME's zoo is one of the largest private zoos in the United States, nestled in a small community in Parker City, Indiana. With over 300 animals of all shapes and sizes, the ME's zoo is a fun a friendly place for the entire family. Get a 'real' close-up view of exotic animals including tigers, leopards, bears, monkeys, birds, and more! Children will love our baby animals in our petting zoo.

Hannah enjoyed feeding the animals. Harrison -- not so much. He would pull his hand away as soon as the animal got close enough to get the food.

As I mentioned before, Harrison is still working on his animal identifications and sounds. He kept calling the deer, "Gow -- Ott" -- meaning "cows with hats." Oh, the antlers, right! Cows with Hats; makes sense to me! :-)

Here are a few photos from our visit:
