ZOO

For Parker's birthday, Honey (MIL) gave Parker a zoo membership to Fort Worth Zoo. We went today for our first trip. He had a blast! We did have a hard time getting there though. There was a wreck on 35 and it took us about an hour to get there. YIKES! I had calculated the time to the minute around Emaline's feeding! I was starting to panic, but my little girl slept the entire time and even is still asleep. I am about to bust, but thought I would post some pictures from today before she decided she was hungry. The hippo came right up to the fence...one dad even grabbed his daughter to protect her from it. Parker loves the elephants and giraffes! We took our lunch and found a great picnic table in the shade. I got a great workout pushing the sit and stand stroller, but Parker did great riding on the back. He never once tried to get off by himself and it sure was easy to let him see the animals while Emaline wasn't bothered. The weather was perfect, a little on the warm side. I just didn't dress us right. Now I know while all the other mommys were wearing shorts and tank tops. Parker wants all of his friends to get Zoo passes too so we can all go together! Thanks Honey for a great present!

I love zoo days!

Beware of the hippo--they kill more people in Africa than any other animal!

Cute pictures!
