Finally . . . Some Bears!!

The only thing we didn't do in Yellowstone was see a bear.  For some reason, the kids were obsessed with finding one of those furry, adorable creatures that might possibly eat them.  Mom made some phone calls and found out that the real way to see bears is to go to BEAR WORLD!  Of course!  What was I thinking?  We shouldn't have gone to Yellowstone at all.  In actuality, all we had to do was drive to Rexburg, Idaho, to see bears, bison, and deer.
Bear World is an amazing place.  I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.  We watched the bear cubs play for over an hour.  It was the best entertainment I've ever had.
Bear World also had a petting zoo with deer, chickens, an unattractive pig, and a crazy goat.  Every time "Crazy Goat" heard a quarter turning in the food machine, he would run over and start to head butt whatever innocent child or adult was turning the knob.  It was very entertaining!

The best part of the day was the bear tour.  We got to drive around with a guide that introduced us to all the animals, including the bears.  We got to feed the bears bread and watch them do tricks.  It was truly an amazing experience.

Bear World also had some "kiddy rides." It was like a miniature amusement park.  Great way to finish off our time at the park.

After spending 3 hours at Bear World, we were all starving.  I decided to look on Yelp to find a restaurant that Rexburgians enjoy.  I found a "taco bus" that got 5 out of 5 stars.  It was the best Mexican food any of us have ever eaten.  

Last, but not least, we drove to the Rexburg temple.  It was beautiful.  
I find it fascinating that our favorite vacation day was not in Yellowstone at all, but in Rexburg, Idaho!
