Last weekend we went to Helen, Georgia with Patrick's parent's, his brother and his brother's wife. It was pretty fun! There isn't much to do but eat and shop, but this little bear park they have was the highlight of the trip. It's called the Black Foreset Bear Park and it's a sort of reserve for bears that cannot be left in the wild for some reason or another. One of them used to be a circus bear! They all seemed so sweet! They would walk around on their hind legs with their mouths open waiting for you to throw them apple & bread scraps. They would catch it mid-air too!
The cool black bear with the white scarf is from Asia. He was very photogenic! Oh, and the 2nd bear waving around his big old bear paw was totally adorable. He just waved and waved and I bet he got fed a LOT.
Okay, I could BEARly control myself when picking out the pictures for this! I had so many cute ones, so I narrowed it down to 13. Click on them to see all the bear beauty.
