We had so much fun yesterday!! We went to the Houston Zoo for the first time. Well, it was Marcus’ and E’s first trip to the zoo. I grew up going there when I was a little girl. Back when the price of admission was a couple of bucks. Anyway. On to the pictures!
We saw giraffes and elephants and rhinos and monkeys and other animals I couldn’t name. It was hot and so most of the animals were in the shade or hiding. And since my vision is still spotty when I get warm, it was difficult for me to see most of the ones that were out. Marcus kept saying, “you see that (insert animal name here)” and I was like, “no, where?” Oh well. I think next time we’ll try to go when the weather is a bit cooler so we can hopefully see more animals. And not get so sweaty. And stinky. 🙂
We met our friend Lindsey and her son Patrick up there. (Along with her entourage, her mom, grandma, the nurse and all P’s stuff). We stopped at one point to take a break and let the boys play a little.
Funny thing, we thought that since it was the day before Good Friday, it wouldn’t be super crowded. Um. WRONG. We didn’t count on field trips. I think there were at least 3 buses from every district in Region 4 out there. And some private schools. There were just a TON of people, and kids, there. Chalk that one up to a lesson learned.
I didn’t put any sunscreen on little E so he got quite red in the face. Poor baby. But we had a good time. And now he’s got some color on his face. Clearly, I need to get that kid outside more often.
