A Day at the Zoo

About 10 o'clock this morning we decided that today would be a good day to visit the Houston Zoo. So we packed up Charles and Thomas and headed out.

Now, you know that it is going to be a good trip when you run into ducks before ever getting out of the parking lot on the way to the entrance!

The first stop where we took a picture was the elephants. Charles may not look to happy here, but that's just because he is still getting over the giraffes... he was having a ball!

We tried to head straight to the Children's Zoo so that Charles could get a little "face time" with the animals, and so that Dianne could find a nice spot for Thomas to have lunch. Here Charles comes face to face with his first sheep. At least the lady said it was a sheep... does not look like any sheep I have ever seen. Don't they have more hair? In any case, Charles was in a constant state of "Baaah" and his finger got quite the workout.

Here we are at the primate exhibit. We tried to visit the Gorilla, but unfortunately he had recently passed away and the exhibit was closed. But the primate habitat was also high on Dianne's list so we went there next. Charles was still very excited but getting tired.

And of course, on our way to get some ice cream just before heading out, we came across the duck pond. Where we HAD to stop and feed the furry little guys.

And then it was home. Charles did not even make it out of Herman Park before he was out... What a day! (now what are we going to do tomorrow?)
