I am not a big fan of the zoo, but my kiddos love it. I could look at all the animals in about 30 minutes and be ready to go. Saturday we were at the zoo for five hours! Granted, some of that time was spent eating, visiting with Drew co-workers (Swift's annual company picnic is at the Houston Zoo), and getting little body parts painted. Still, five hours is a long time for me to be at the zoo. Thankfully, I had the pleasure of watching four adorable faces light up in amazement at the crazy animals all day long. It was worth being there for so long.
Elena, who slept through most of our visit to the zoo last year, spent most of the day with this look on her face...absolutely precious! She also said good-bye to every animal.
