And now, the much anticipated alligator park. This is the welcome sign at the entrance to the park:
My littles with a baby alligator. They're all so cute!
We spent 3 days and 2 nights in the park. Those of you who know me know that this shows some serious maternal committment. I hate camping, but I made the conscious decision to go and have a great time because I have 3 little boys. I don't want them to miss out on crazy boy stuff just because they only have a mom now. This was a pretty common sight around the bayou. I wish I kept track of how many alligators we saw. At least 40:
The only thing separating the alligators and the people is common sense...probably not a big enough barrier for some people! This one looks like it's a ways away, but it was actually a 10 foot alligator only about 15 feet away. If Seth hadn't fallen asleep in the stroller I think I might have used this one for our family Christmas picture this year.
