Bear World

This last weekend we went to Idaho. While we were there we went to Bear World. Surprisingly, we had never gone there before, even though it's not that far away from Idaho Falls. We decided this summer that when we went to Idaho we would finally go to Bear World. We told Riley that we would go and for the past month and a half he has been marking his own little calendar with stickers, counting down the days until we would finally go to Bear World.

(Me, Grammy, and my cute little bear cub, Riley)

I can't believe how close you actually get to the bears. I thought it was funny that they told us you had to keep moving because if you stopped the bears could climb on the car. It was a little difficult to get any pictures because you have to keep your windows rolled up. But I had a few that turned out.

After we drove through to see the bears, we went to the little amusement park and petting zoo. Riley was being a scaredy cat and he started screaming on the first ride. The cars went up in the air and then they started bouncing and he did not like that. I think he was afraid he was going to fall. After that he'd only go on the train.

One of Riley's favorite parts at Bear World was the petting zoo. He said he loved petting the big pig.

Riley's other favorite part was the bear cubs. That was my favorite part too. The bear cubs are in an area all by themselves over by the amusement park. Riley loved watching the baby bear cubs run and play.
