The MRL Morning Show

Weekdays 6:00AM-10:00AM

Exploring Charlotte with the Family can be fun! Especially if you try something new and leave your comfort zone!

If you are looking for something fun and different to do with the family try Lazy 5 Ranch in Mooresville! Monday the show and I were off for Memorial Day and baby Cash was off of school too.

Now, any good mom knows, no school means you gotta get creative! When I was a Big Sister for Big Brothers-Big Sisters I took my little Gen to see the animals at Lazy 5 and she loved it. However she was a lot older than Cash so I wasn’t sure if it would be too much for him, or if he would even care.

Much to my delight Cash seemed to enjoy seeing the animals up close and personal. We fed cows, deer, buffaloes, and giraffes! I will say though, it takes a long time to get through the whole park and Cash was definitely ready to get out by the time we were done.

When you are finished with the animals, Lazy 5 has a fun little playground and food stand with snacks for the kids (complete with ice cream). It’s a fun family event for sure, just be ready to get dirty and go straight to the car wash when you’re done! There is slobber and animal feed all over my jeep now.
