Houston Zoo!

We went to the zoo! It was a ton of fun. There were alot of elementary schools there so we were able to see the animals moving around. They had alot of workers out feeding the animals and giving animal facts. Nate and Addison loved to see the animals up close and moving! Well the rhinos were the only ones not moving.

Addison and Nate love to play at the park there. It was covered so it made it a nice break from the heat!

Nate was off in his own world climbing, sliding, and running!!

The elephants were really neat! The baby is 6 mo. and over 700lbs! The mom was putting on a nice show for us. Opening her mouth, lifting up her feet, turning, backing up and then getting feed.

Nate really wanted a picture with the fake elephant. So I told him to go up there and this is how he sits. What a little poser! I love it. The guy behind us was laughing and saying "look at that little kid, he is posing all by himself."

And then we came to the African huts. Nate was supposed to get a picture of me and Addi, but obviously that didn't happen! So instead we get the pictures where he was trying to be really scary and then he started laughing at himself!

These chimpanzee's were really cool! There were 10 of them all out together. It was the first time that they had all been out together. They use to be used to do commercials and things until they were donated this last October to the Zoo. So they moved around alot, and there was one that kept coming over and running by the window when alot of people came by. There was 5 girls and 5 boys. Addison wanted to stay there.

The lions were being feed by this fence while a worker talked about them for a class. Addison wanted to be right up there to see, it was pretty cute!

The got a picture of the class, and the lions posed for the camera!
