2009.09.12-BinderZoo.06.jpgDo you know how hard it is to find a petting zoo?  Well, a good one?  Ian and I went down to the Battle Creek Binder Park Zoo where they do have one and Ian had a blast with the children’s zoo.  There were all kinds of animals to pet, but Ian loved getting in with the goats and feeding them.  He was able to get right up to them and pet them to his hearts content.  Of course, the goats did mob him when they realized he had food, but Ian just started giggling like there was no tomorrow.

While we were there, we also got to feed and pet the giraffes Binder has in their African Safari section.  We even got to see the baby giraffe that was recently born (he was soo cute).  I do have to say that I like the Binder Park Giraffe feeding area more than the Detroit Zoos.  At Binder, you can feed the giraffes as much as you want and as long as the giraffes will let you.

Overall, it was a great day to be at Binder Park and Ian had a blast.  We’ll have to go back sometime soon.
