Bonnie Springs

A few weeks ago my mom and dad invited the boys and me to go with them and my sister's kids to visit Bonnie Springs for the day. We drove out to Red Rock and then went a little ways past Spring Mountain Ranch to Bonnie Springs. It was set up to look like an old Nevada town complete with a small railroad, shops, a restaurant, an old graveyard and a petting zoo. The kids had a good time exploring the town and watching the bank robbery. After riding the train we walked over to the pond where the kids fed ducks and then ventured over to see all of the animals. Peacocks were running around everywhere and there were horses and bulls in pens. After seeing the animals that were fenced in we braved the petting zoo. Trevor and Colin had a good time being up close and personal with some of the animals and they were not afraid to reach out and pet them. I got a little nervous watching the boys getting so close to animals that were bigger than them, but we had no accidents and everyone left the zoo excited about what they had experienced. After the zoo we took a break for lunch and then rode the train one last time. It was a beautiful setting for a day outdoors and everyone had a good time.

It looks like you had a lot of fun. I haven't been out there since I was a kid myself. We'll have to take Nathan and Noelle out there soon while the weather is still beautiful.
