Lemurs & Cheetahs & Giraffes, Oh My!

Friday, November 29th, 2002 · 4 Comments

Yesterday’s trip to up north to Santa Rosa’s Safari West was a great success. Everyone had a really good time walking around the grounds before and after dinner, and enjoyed the unique occasion that was Thanksgiving this year.

After battling some traffic up 101, we eventually arrived in two carloads at the wild animal preserve. Dad, Mom, Peter, Jen, and I all immediately felt good about the place and our decision to celebrate turkey day there. Before settling in for the grub, we strolled around and met a couple giraffes, some sleek cheetahs, lemurs, macaws who only said “ba-bye,” gazelles, some porcupines, and more. And the food was delicious, too. I ate just enough and didn’t stuff myself too much.

Upon returning home for some games of Scrabble (at which I actually beat Dad!) and Apples to Apples, the rest of the night was pretty chill, with more gratuitous violence in Grand Theft Auto Vice City.
