Even though our whole family still seems to have an ongoing cold, we have been telling the kids for a few days that we were going to take them to the zoo on family day. Asher has been seriously obsessed with dinosaurs lately (he roars continually) and they have a whole dinosaur exhibit that lasts until September! My parents got us zoo passes for the whole year as a birthday present and we have already used the passes so much. What a great gift! We never really get to see the whole zoo in one trip (it's so hot and the zoo is huge) but we try to see the kids favorite animals. Zoee loves to go to the petting zoo and pet the goats, Asher loved seeing the dinosaurs (he would just stand there in awe of them until we made him move on to the next animal!!) and they both love feeding the giraffes. Though it was hot and we weren't feeling 100%, we had a great time and got home in time for naps!!
Feeding the giraffes their salad! Yummy!!
Handsome little man in awe of the giraffes!
Very life-like depiction of a T-Rex! The kids honestly couldn't tell the difference between these "pretend" animals and the real ones! Great job Houston Zoo!
We all got to pet the baby alligator!
Incredibly thankful the T-Rex isn't real!
Daddy and dinosaurs... Asher's favorite!
