Summer Day Trip to McClain Amy Beckley Photography
Jun 17, 2019 | By: Amy Beckley Photography
It's kind of crazy to think that this was our first family adventure to McClain considering it's about 2 miles from our house, but we took advantage of the cooler Mississippi weather last week and took the trip! We started out doing the Close Encounter Experience and Lizzy LOVED it! We got very up close and personal with several of McClain's animals. Lizzy was a little scared at first, but she warmed up quickly. The Close Encounter Experience was a definite do again. We were told they were preparing to add several new animals in the upcoming weeks, including a baby porcupine...AWWWWW!
After the Close Encounter we got to meet one of the two new Giraffes at McClain. Styx was very eager to eat Lizzy's treats while Skylar Grace was a bit shy. We were also told that Skylar is expecting and the gestation period for giraffes is 15 MONTHS! WOW! Lizzy loved the goats but was not a fan of the camel. It was a great day for a summer adventure.
