The other weekend, we took a day trip down to the Davis, Oklahoma, area. Our first stop was the Bedre Fine Chocolate factory. The production line was not running when we were there, but they have floor to ceiling windows from the gift shop and we got to see all the equipment that they use to make chocolates.
We also got some chocolate to eat. Noah got a chocolate in the shape of Oklahoma. Emily got some gummy bears. Yeah, I don’t understand it either. I got a white chocolate egg. And Mike got some dark chocolate covered potato chips.
We also stopped at the Chickasaw Nation Welcome Center, which is next door. It has a lot of items made by people of the Chickasaw Nation – foods, candles, artwork, books, artifacts, etc. Very neat and interesting to see.
Then we headed over to Arbuckle Wilderness drive through park to feed the animals. This is something we really enjoy doing, but it’s very expensive to get in. I made sure we bought plenty of food to feed the animals. They gave us the food in a plastic shopping bag and I let Noah carry it out to the car, but he accidentally dropped it outside on the steps and it went all over. BOO! We picked up as much as we could and it was all fine.
There were not a lot of people at the park when we were there so we got to go through at our own speed and stop whenever we wanted. We spent a lot of time trying to feed the giraffe. There was an ostrich standing right beside the giraffe’s pen. Those thing will peck your eyes out! So Mike lured the ostrich over to his side of the car so that Emily and Noah and I could try to feed the giraffe. So fun.
Noah likes to hold his cup out the window and just let the animals eat as much as they want. That’s why I bought a whole bag of food this time. He looks all happy because the animals love him!
I get so caught up in feeding the animals that I forget to take many pictures, but the zebras are always neat to see. Their stripes are as unique as our fingerprints.
Before we left the park, we had to stop by the playground for a few minutes. It was such a pretty day.
They have some unique items on their playground like this wooden train.
And also this wooden monster truck.
One the way home, we stopped by Jo’s Famous Pizza in Purcell. We took some selfies while we were waiting for our food.
Isn’t she so pretty?
