Grace has been mentioning the zoo about once a week since the beginning of the year. With the mid-to-upper-70-degree weather we had this week, I took the opportunity to take her to the zoo. She was so excited. I decided that we would do the entire trip without a stroller – because she doesn’t ride in it 96% of the time anyways. I packed us a picnic lunch and we set off. It was rather busy – as most parents were also taking advantage of the weather, but it wasn’t a problem. Grace didn’t notice, but there were several exhibits that were closed for renovations or cleanings or whatever – all very normal if Houston would have been having normal weather. I was only bummed because the playground equipment was one of those things closed. We still had lots of fun.
We always visit the Meerkats first.
“What’s that over there?!?!?”
We spent over ten minutes watching these two swim.
Even then, I had to tell Grace that we weren’t spending our entire trip to the zoo watching the elephants.
She felt the need to HOP! over ever crack in the path.
