Last Sunday, I woke up thinking that we didn't need to waste the day sitting around. So, I corralled us all and we headed over to the Ft. Worth Zoo. This could have been a dicey situation since the weather was supposed to be sunny and 97. But, thankfully, outside of a few snaps between all of us, it turned out okay.

It's about a 45 - 60 min drive to the zoo from our house. We piled in the car about 10:45 and within about 20 mins of leaving Mallory informed us that she wasn't feeling good. What does any good mommy do in this situation? Tell her to close her eyes and go to sleep. One day I will figure out a remedy for car sickness.

Once we got to the zoo, all the "green" was gone and excitement was in the air. Mallory has been to the Dallas Zoo but she was only 2.5 at the time. True has never been. So I am really counting it as a first for both kids. It won't be the last.

They absolutely loved looking at the animals. Here are some of our favs:

All Mallie could think about was seeing the giraffes. True was enamored of the bear. Probably because he was reacting to us while all the other animals were sleeping or too hot to pretend we were even there. See what I mean below? That's a sleeping gorilla.

There aren't many pics of the kids because neither were in a "picture" mood. Hopefully this passes soon. You know I love the camera.

Gonna take the kids to the zoo while they are here. Tell Mallie her Aunt Chele loves the giraffes too...and cousin Scarlet also does. They are just so graceful to be so big! Wished I was long like they are, maybe not quite so LONG, but you know what I mean!
