Feeding Frenzy

We just got back from a very low budget, impromptu road trip to Vegas.  On our way there we stopped at a roadside restaurant to stretch our legs, in Wikieup, AZ.  Wikieup is a little town about 120 miles NW of Phoenix, in Mohave County.

We had no idea that we’d just discovered a treasure of awesomeness.  When I poked my head in the front door, I was disappointed to find a bunch of pottery and other very breakable items.  We are far from the most coordinated family in the world. I didn’t really trust myself not to break anything, let alone the boys.

It was the kind of place where if you knock one thing over you break twelve.   I nearly said lets leave when a shop keeper caught my eye and must have sensed my trepidation. She directed us to the garden in the back. I am so thankful she did.

Not only was this place gorgeous, but also interactive.

When the koi in the giant pond saw us walk up, it was like a feeding frenzy, and we hadn’t even given them anything yet.

There were 25 cent fish food dispensers.  When Der was getting ready to put his money in an old guy with a cane shuffled over to him and said “Don’t be in such a hurry to spend your money.” and gave him a 32 oz cup full of food pellets.  Thanks!

While we were feeding the fish, this guy took notice and came for his share.
