The one thing the kids wanted to do while in Thailand was ride an elephant. So on the third day we drove almost 2 hours outside of the city and went on an elephant ride. I think it is something the kids will remember for the rest of their lives. I mean, who could forget sitting on the back of an elephant, walking through a jungle in Thailand?
Matt, Chris and Sami went on the elephant ahead of us. So many of the pictures I have taken are from behind.
One of the neatest parts of the ride was walking through a small creek while on the elephants.
There were lots of pretty trees, flowers and other vegetation to see.
If you look real close you will even see a few monkeys in this picture. And yes, they are wearing shirts. Strange, I know. Imagine seeing a monkey running around wearing clothes in the jungle.
We did manage to get a few pictures of us front the front. And even a shot or two of Emily and myself.
Afterwards the kids were able to feed the elephants some bananas. Just a small treat for not throwing us off.
You can see many more pictures here. Just keep in mind it is hard to take decent pictures from atop a moving elephant.
