Some women in my ward were taking their children to half-price day at the Fort Worth Zoo. I got to tag along, which I was very excited to do, but forgot that it was spring break. And there were approximately a gazillion people at the zoo. Definitely learned my lesson on that one!
Despite the crowds, we had a good, but tiring time. We didn't get to see everything and want to go back and explore on a less crazy day but these are some of the highlights:
Megan's request was to see the tigers and the alligators. Didn't get the alligators, but they did have these gorgeous white tigers.
This orangutan put on a great show for us climbing up and down and playing with burlap bags. It was almost as though he was playing to the crowd.
The rhinos were keeping cool . . .
The lions were enjoying the sun . . .
And the bald eagle was posing as a bald eagle should.
The girls were fantastic although Megan insisted on being wrapped in a blanket even though it was 85 degrees.
Abby hung out -- ate lots of cheerios -- and really fought to get down and move. Lazy days in the stroller are coming to an end!
The Fort Worth zoo had this neat Texas town that I wanted to see more of but look at all those people! I'll wait a week or two for a nice day when everyone's back in school so that we can have the zoo a little more to ourselves I think.
Oh yeah, Happy St. Patrick's Day and Relief Society Birthday!
