On day 2 of our trip from FL to ID we were driving through LA when I saw a sign for the Alligator Park. I have a habit of reading signs and billboards out loud for hings I find odd or interesting (my children start calling out ALL signs. For Everything. It is not a fun "game"!). Mike: you wanna go don't you? Me: yeah, kinda. Mike (in an exasperated tone): where's the exit? So after about 10 - 15 miles of twists and turns and following signs that are progressively starting to scare me into thinking it's some serial killer trick to get unsuspecting travelers out in the middle of no where we finally arrive.
There were other animals there too,and this swampy area did NOT smell that good, so off we went. Of course there were more picture opportunities along the way.
Did I mention it was HOT and MJ was not standing up there on her own!
We fed turtles, deer, goats, and birds before getting down to the main attraction. I had totally forgotten about the show the did at feeding time. It was so hot though we had to make a fast detour back to the cafe for a few drinks before everyone became gator food after passing out from heat exhaustion.
