Today, we went to the Woolaroc museum and nature preserve in the Osage Hills of Oklahoma, toured the museum, saw the wildlife, ate some lunch, and tried (and eventually succeeded) to take a good photo of Grayson.
Woolaroc was home to a number of different types of animals, including elk, water buffalo, and this herd of bison.

It was pretty windy, so the kids took refuge in Ashley’s car to eat lunch.
“What are you guys up to?”
Dillon was the only one with two successful throws in a row.

Kelsey showing Grayson how big a woolly mammoth’s tooth is (answer: as big as his head!)
Which one is the bear, and which one is Grayson? I can’t tell!
Grayson found a throne of bone.
A woolly mammoth’s head is approximately Grayson-sized.

Instead of King of the Hill, it’s Queen of the Teepee?
Bison poop. Grayson’s shoe for scale.
Yep, Woolaroc even had zebra.
These llamas had a stream that ran through their area.
Game time. And now for your moment of zen…

Hands on hips, trying not to smile.
Thoughtful duck lips?
Hands on hips, tongue out.
Head cocked, tongue out, hands on hips.
Finally, a good one.
