Canada's African Lion Safari

After spending the day in Niagara we woke up the next morning ready to head back home.. but first my favorite meal of the day breakfast and then some lions.

We had breakfast at the Flying Saucer.. another very satisfying meal. The place is shaped like a giant flying saucer! and of course no meal is complete without the boys both sitting on me while I eat.

Next stop the Lion Safari. The African Lion Safari is in a town called Hamilton an hour northeast of Niagara. M and I had both separately been there before and while I had a great time his was a bit lackluster. On our way there it started to rain.. a heavy downpour that made us think we should probably turn back and head home.. there was no way the animals would be in a good mood with all the rain. But D wanted to see the lions.. so we had no choice but to go on and hope for the best.. well i'm glad we did.. because the rain stopped when we neared the park and by the time me bought tickets the sun started to peak out through the gray clouds.. and like magic it was a perfect day.

a llama or alpaca sit in the middle of the road.. just because they can.

white lions

and the monkeys.. oh so funny monkeys had us all amused as they sat on cars and played with antennas.. they were the MVP's of the park.

and if you ask H about the animals he'll ask 'Animal's? What animals?
